I recently received the 2020 Endorsement from Minnesotans Concerned for Life and it is an honor to be recognized by this organization. They are committed to holding legislators accountable to the promises we make to protect life throughout our time in office.

From a young age I have believed in the sanctity of life. My first pro-life speech was at age 16. My beliefs were challenged throughout college, but through it, I learned the importance of fact-based support for the unborn.

Serving on the Health and Human Services Committee since 2011 has deepened and expanded my understanding and commitment to protecting the vulnerable, no matter the stage of life. Since becoming Chair of the HHS Committee, I have had the opportunity to influence policy on pro-life issues and stand against efforts to revoke those rights.

In the upcoming election, Minnesotans have the opportunity to protect the vulnerable by voting for those who recognize the value of life from conception to end-of-life.

I believe every single life is precious and that conviction directs my steps as a pro-life legislator. I will continue advocating for initiatives that ensure mothers and their babies, vulnerable adults, and our elderly are all protected.
