Senator Lankford Asks Senators and Americans: ‘Is That a Baby?’

WASHINGTON, DC — On January 27, Senator James Lankford (R-OK) delivered an impassioned speech on the Senator floor to ask a simple question: Is that a baby? His speech comes ahead of the annual virtual March for Life on Friday. Lankford pressed that some in our nation want to avoid the question of whether a child in the womb is in fact a human baby and instead ask whether or not a legislator supports programs that help children and mothers after the baby is born. Lankford shared his “shock” at some of the work the current nominee to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, has done to actually promote and allow for abortions of the most vulnerable humans among us. Lankford encouraged those attending the March for Life virtually this year to continue to speak up for the lives of the unborn.
