In celebration of the recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) is leading an effort to designate June as the “Month of Life.” Ernst and eight of her Senate colleagues introduced legislation this week supporting the designation. Congresswoman Carol Miller (R-W.V.) introduced a similar resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives (H.Res. 1216).

“Protecting life and the most vulnerable among us is the most important charge of any society, and the recent landmark decision by the Supreme Court upholds that responsibility,” said Senator Ernst. “My effort to mark June as the ‘Month of Life’ celebrates this major victory for the pro-life movement, one that will pave a path for countless innocent lives to be saved.”

Co-sponsors of the bill include Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), John Thune (R-S.D.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.). The bill has earned support from the March for Life and Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee. Full text of the legislation is here.

Ernst recently joined her colleagues in recognizing and celebrating the pro-life movement and volunteers who have pushed for change over the last 50 years.
