Cathy McMorris Rodgers
Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers and SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser:
Cathy McMorris Rodgers was elected to the House of Representatives in 2004. The former Washington State Representative was a champion for the unborn in the state legislature. She served five terms as a citizen legislator in Olympia eventually being elected to minority leader. Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers has continued her unending efforts to protect Life as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Cathy’s young son Cole has Down Syndrome, and he inspired her to start the first ever Down Syndrome Caucus in the House of Representatives to raise awareness about the blessings of children affected by the disease. She launched the caucus on Mother’s Day 2008. Considering that over 90% of unborn children diagnosed with Down Syndrome are aborted each year, Cathy McMorris Rodgers and her son Cole are a real beacon of Life, spreading the message that every child is a gift and blessing.
Rep. McMorris Rodgers defends Life after the March for Life:
Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers has co-sponsored the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act, the Weldon-Stupak Human Cloning Prohibition Act, and the Child Custody Protection Act. Cathy represents Washington's 5th Congressional district. She is currently Co-Chair of the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues.
She is married to Brian Rodgers and gave birth to her son, Cole, in early 2006. She is expecting her second child, a girl, this Christmas.
