RE: H. Con. Res. 3 – Expressing the sense of Congress condemning the recent attacks on pro-life facilities, groups, and churches.

Dear Member of Congress:

The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the nationwide federation of right-to-life organizations, urges you to support H. Con. Res. 3 when it comes before the House of Representatives on January 11, 2023. 

The Biden Administration has systematically failed to respond to numerous attacks on pregnancy care centers, pro-life groups, and churches that occurred in reaction to the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court decision.  There have been over 100 documented incidents in the time after the leaked Dobbs decision until today. 

The resolution condemns “recent attacks of vandalism, violence, and destruction against pro-life facilities, groups, and churches,” and calls on the Biden Administration to use its authority to protect the rights of such organizations. 

In addition, the resolution “recognizes the sanctity of life and the important role pro-life facilities, groups, and churches play in supporting pregnant women, infants, and families.”

This resolution recognizes that pregnancy care centers, pro-life groups, and churches should continue to be able to serve the needs of women in their communities without fear of violence.

Nearly 3,000 pregnancy centers serve about 2 million clients annually, saving local communities millions of dollars by providing services at little to no cost. Many pregnancy centers provide limited obstetrical ultrasounds under a local doctor’s oversight as well as parenting classes. In addition, nearly all centers provide material assistance such as diapers, cribs, and car seats as well as practical help such as connecting a mother in need to local resources that can help her with housing or transportation.

NRLC intends to include the roll call on passage of H. Con. Res. 3 in its scorecard of key pro-life roll calls of the 118th Congress. 

Should you have any questions, please contact us at (202) 378-8863, or via e-mail at jpopik@nrlc.org. Thank you for your consideration of NRLC’s position on this resolution.
