John Hoeven on Abortion

Republican Jr Senator; previously Governor

 


Supports Hyde amendment; no tax dollars for abortion

Hoeven helped introduce multiple pieces of legislation to protect the sanctity of life. Hoeven's efforts coincide with the Biden administration repealing the Mexico City policy, an action the senator opposes as it would allow U.S. foreign assistance funding to support abortion services in other nations. Hoeven will continue his efforts as a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee to preserve the Hyde amendment and prevent any taxpayer dollars from going to abortion services or providers.

Include pre-born human beings in 14th Amendment protection.

Hoeven co-sponsored S.2464/H.R.816

A bill to implement equal protection under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States for the right to life of each born and preborn human person.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, to implement equal protection for the right to life of each born and preborn human person, the Congress hereby declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human being.

Nothing in this Act shall be construed to require the prosecution of any woman for the death of her unborn child, a prohibition on in vitro fertilization, or a prohibition on use of birth control or another means of preventing fertilization.

In this Act, the terms `human person` and `human being` include each member of the species homo sapiens at all stages of life, including the moment of fertilization or cloning, or other moment at which an individual member of the human species comes into being.

Voted YES to protect infant survivors of abortion.

Hoeven voted YEA Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

S.311/H.R.962: Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act: Congress finds the following:

Opposing argument from Rewire.com, "Born Alive Propaganda," by Calla Hales, 4/12/2019: From restrictive bans at various points of pregnancy to a proposed death penalty for seeking care, both federal and state legislators are taking aim at abortion rights. The goal? To make abortion illegal, criminalizing patients and providers in the process. One kind of bill making a recent resurgence is the "Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act." These bills aim to further the false narrative that abortions regularly occur immediately before or, according to the president, at the time of birth. Intentional action to end the life of an infant is already illegal. This is covered by federal and state infanticide laws. These bills do nothing but vilify physicians who provide reproductive health care.

Legislative outcome Referred to Committee in House; Senate motion to proceed rejected, 56-41-3 (60 required).
