West Virginia Congresswoman Carol Miller introduced a resolution (H. RES. 1216) recognizing June as the “Month of Life,” and 46 other House Republicans have co-signed the resolution.

We know that not all people will be celebrating. Also, since the Clinton administration, June has officially been recognized as “Pride Month” in support of the LGBTQ community. However, months can share multiple designations.
House Republican Conference Chair and Representative of New York’s 21st Congressional District is “proud to join the resolutions.”
This June, we celebrated the historic Supreme Court ruling that will save countless lives.
I am proud to join this resolution as a reminder of our commitment to defend the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for every American.https://t.co/SvkKH2ZWPQ

The document highlights the role of scientific and medical technology in “demonstrating the humanity of the unborn child” and supports tasking states with providing ‘necessary resources’ to women and families experiencing unplanned pregnancies so that they can find “life-affirming alternatives” to abortion.
In a statement provided to Fox News Digital, Rep. Miller, a grandmother of seven, said she knows “the joy that children bring to a family” and celebrates the United States’ highest court’s decision for reaffirming that “all children, no matter their age, should be cherished.”
As a side note, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice said he will convene a Special Session “to clarify the state’s abortion law.”DONATE
