Last week the pro-life group Americans United for Life filed an amicus brief on behalf of U.S. Senators John Boozman, Tom Cotton, and 100 other pro-life members of Congress.

AUL filed the brief in federal court in defense of good restrictions that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration places on abortion drugs like RU-486.

It’s good to see Arkansas’ U.S. Senators taking a strong, pro-life stance once again.

Sens. Boozman and Cotton both voted to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court in October.

In 2015 they repeatedly called for investigations into Planned Parenthood after undercover videos showed Planned Parenthood officials discussing the harvest and sale of fetal tissue.

In 2016 they joined with Arkansas four U.S. Congressmen in signing an amicus brief defending pro-life legislation in Texas.

In 2018 they co-sponsored a bill that would have banned most abortions in the U.S. after the fifth month of pregnancy. They also urged congress to de-fund Planned Parenthood.

In 2019 they co-sponsored federal legislation requiring states to report abortion data to the U.S. government.

And last January both Sens. Boozman and Cotton participated in the annual March for Life in Little Rock.

Arkansas is very fortunate to have a congressional delegation that stands up for the sanctity of innocent human life.
