HUDSON: A victory for life

HUDSON: A victory for life

Five decades of prayer have been answered. On Friday, the Supreme Court issued a ruling in Dobbs v Jackson that is overdue news for life and the unborn. I am glad the Court decided to return power to where it belongs – the people and their elected representatives. Did you know more than 600,000 babies were murdered in the United States through abortion last year? In total, more than 60 million lives have been ended by abortion since Roe v Wade was implemented 49 years ago. It is clear, ending Roe v Wade’s unconstitutional and unscientific precedent – which mandated…

HUDSON: Protecting our children

It has been almost two weeks since the horrific attack at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Yet, the country continues to reel from the senseless act perpetrated that day. What happened in Uvalde was abhorrent and we should to everything we can so that it never happens again. This is a moment that demands action from both sides of the aisle. I have repeatedly joined with my House Republican colleagues to champion common sense measures that would directly improve areas like school safety and mental health. We want to save children’s lives and have come to the table with…
