Sen. Joni Ernst

Iowa (Republican)

SBA List Rating:

A

Senator Ernst has voted consistently to protect the lives of unborn babies and infants as well as the consciences of taxpayers who don’t want their hard-earned tax dollars paying for abortion domestically or internationally. While the pro-abortion majority in the U.S. House of Representatives continually sends the Senate bills that roll back pro-life protections, the Senate has made it their priority to confirm judges and justices who will respect the constitution and leave legislating to the legislative branch.

Senator Ernst is Co-chair of the Senate Values Action Team. She co-introduced S. 2585, the Ensuring Accurate and Complete Abortion Data Reporting Act with Senator Tom Cotton. Senator Ernst also introduced S. 141, the Protecting Funding for Women's Health Care Act.
