Bill Hagerty Will Stand With President Trump To Defend Our Unborn Children

Monday, February 17, 2020

I am proud to live in Tennessee, where the Republican-led General Assembly is working to pass legislation that will protect our unborn children. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the socialist liberals running for president who would allow our tax dollars to be used for abortions. At the same time, some Democrats have even promoted infanticide. This socialist agenda is a direct threat to our unborn children, and we must work to elect Christian conservatives who will stand with President Trump and be a voice for the voiceless.

That’s why I am supporting Bill Hagerty for U.S. Senate. As a Christian and a father of four, Bill understands how important it is to stand for life. Bill grew up with Tennessee values, and like so many of us, he truly values the sanctity of life.  Bill always says, “abortion is not a human right; it takes a human life,” and he is exactly right. Bill will uphold his values and support legislation to strengthen protections for unborn children. He will also push to provide more options for mothers to turn to, such as crisis pregnancy centers, community groups, and faith outreach groups. 

President Trump is leading the fight for life, and he made history earlier this year, when he became the first sitting President to speak at the March for Life. But President Trump cannot do it alone, he needs strong allies he trusts, like Bill Hagerty in the Senate to help him.

Most importantly, Bill understands that Planned Parenthood must be defunded. For your awareness, just between 2017-2018, Planned Parenthood performed 332,757 abortion procedures - the most since 2011-2012. It is far past time for Congress to act and stop this organization and any other abortion provider from receiving federal funding. With Bill in office, he will do everything he can to prevent taxpayer funding from going to the most prolific abortion provider in the United States. He will stand side-by-side with Senator Marsha Blackburn and President Donald Trump to defund Planned Parenthood. 

But one of the best ways we can ensure our unborn children are protected is by confirming more Constitutionalist judges to the bench. That would be one of Bill’s main objectives in the Senate. 

Radical Democrats want to pack the court with activist judges who will legislate from the bench. The Trump administration and the conservative Senate Majority have already confirmed nearly 200 federal judges, and we need to make sure that number continues to rise. Bill will vote to confirm more of President Trump’s judicial nominees to the federal bench and the Supreme Court, who will uphold the rule of law and respect the Constitution. 

I strongly encourage you to join me in supporting Bill Hagerty for Senate. We must send a message to the Democrats in Washington that Tennesseans do not support their radical pro-abortion ideas. Tennesseans value the sanctity of life, and so does Bill Hagerty; he will be a strong voice for the unborn in Congress.
