AULA commends Rep. Cliff Stearns
Americans United for Life Action (AULA) commends Congressman Cliff Stearns, who is running to represent the 3rd Congressional District of Florida, for his unwavering commitment to protecting life. Congressman Stearns’ support of life-affirming legislation during his tenure in Congress has demonstrated that he whole-heartedly shares AULA’s goal of ensuring that all are welcomed in life and protected in law.
AULA is the legislative arm of Americans United for Life (AUL), the first national pro-life, public-interest law and policy organization. Our attorneys work tirelessly across the nation to help legislators write commonsense laws that protect innocent human life at the state and national level, and to defend those laws against court challenges. Our attorneys have been involved in every life-related Supreme Court case beginning with Roe v. Wade, including successfully defending the Hyde Amendment in front of the Supreme Court.
AULA has had the privilege of working with Congressman Stearns to defend life for many years. During his tenure as a Member of the U.S. House, he has consistently worked to safeguard all innocent human life and to advance the health and safety of women. Congressman Stearns is a co-sponsor of AULA’s legislative priorities for the 112th Congress to prohibit federal taxpayer funding of abortion, de-fund the abortion industry, amend the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to protect life, defend the freedom of conscience, and protect the health and safety of minor girls. Congressman Stearns has a 100% pro-life voting record in AULA’s Scorecard for the 111th and 112th Congress.
AULA also recognizes Congressman Stearns’ commitment to stopping Planned Parenthood’s disregard for the health and safety of women and young girls, and ensuring that Americans are no longer forced to fund a scandal-ridden, corrupt organization with their hard-earned tax dollars. Because of Congressman Stearns’ steadfast leadership, the House Energy and Commerce Committee launched an unprecedented investigation in September 2011 to examine Planned Parenthood and its affiliates’ policies and practices and their use of federal monies.
AULA commends Representative Stearns’ dedication to protecting all innocent human life and advancing women’s health. We look forward to continuing to work closely with him in the 113th Congress to defend the human rights of all human beings.
