WASHINGTON— Today, U.S. Senators Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) introduced legislation that would require a woman to be informed of the medical risks of abortion, as well as the gestational age of her unborn child, along with her baby’s stage of development.

The following statement can be attributed to Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life:

“National Right to Life commends Senators Loeffler and Blackburn for introducing the Woman’s Right to Know Act. Numerous states have established laws ensuring that a mother is given a chance to consider all of her options and receive important information to help her make an informed decision. We support the effort to make this a nation-wide protection – one critical in saving the lives of innocent children and ensuring that women have a right to know the facts about their unborn child.”

Sponsors include Senators Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), and James Lankford (R-Okla.).

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
