Congressman Jim Baird is a lifelong resident of the Fourth U.S. Congressional District, a Vietnam Veteran, a farmer, a small business owner for more than three decades, and a member of the Gobin United Methodist Church. He is married to his high school sweetheart Danise, and together they are the proud parents of three children, all graduates of Purdue University. Before joining Congress, he served eight years as a State Representative in the Indiana General Assembly.
Rep. Baird has earned an A+ on SBA List's National Pro-Life Scorecard. He has stood up against the pro-abortion agenda of the Biden-Harris administration and Pelosi Democrats who are actively working to expand abortion access and abortion funding. Rep. Baird has voted consistently to defend the lives of the unborn and infants. This includes stopping hard-earned tax dollars from paying for abortion, whether domestically or internationally, and protecting health care provider rights for those who refuse to engage in brutal abortions.
Congressman Baird gave a Floor speech underscoring the importance of the Hyde Amendment and the need for H.R. 18, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act.
