VIDEO: Young Stands for Life Ahead of Tomorrow’s Supreme Court Hearing

WASHINGTON–Today, U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) joined a press conference with his Senate GOP colleagues to discuss tomorrow’s scheduled oral argument in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organizationbefore the U.S. Supreme Court. 


The landmark case concerns Mississippi’s state law protecting unborn babies from abortions after 15 weeks. Senator Young signed an amicus brief asking the Court to uphold this law and consider overturning the outdated precedents set by Roe v. Wade.


“The United States of America is an outlier when it comes to how we protect babies. We are only one of seven countries around the world, one of seven countries, that allows abortion to take place past the point at which a baby can feel pain in the womb. We join the likes of the Chinese Communist Party and the dictator in North Korea in our policies.


“Eighty percent of the American people oppose abortions beyond the point of which a child can feel pain. So, I look forward to welcoming other Hoosiers into this city tomorrow as they descend on the nation’s capital, make their voices heard, and ensure that the voices of those who can’t speak for themselves will ultimately be heard as well,” said Senator Young.
