Congressman Guest has reaffirmed his commitment to pro-life issues through a series of cosponsorships and pledges. Most notably, Congressman Guest joined over 200 Republicans in a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi defending the Hyde Amendment, a longstanding measure that prevents the use of taxpayer dollars from funding abortions.
“The Hyde Amendment has a bipartisan foundation that has stood the test of time. It has saved countless lives and has served as a strong indicator of our nation’s moral compass for over four decades. It’s vital we fight to save it.”
Congressman Guest already cosponsored numerous pro-life bills slated to be reintroduced in the 117th Congress that were previously introduced in the 116th Congress, including:
- Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act would require healthcare providers to exercise the same degree of care for a child born during a failed abortion that they would exercise for a child born under normal circumstances.
- Defund Planned Parenthood Act would block federal dollars from funding Planned Parenthood.
- Life at Conception Act would establish the right to life for all individuals beginning at the point of conception.
- Protecting Life in Crisis Act would prohibit the use of funds allocated for COVID-19 response from being used to perform abortions.
Congressman Guest is also a member of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, a bipartisan organization of House Members that works with pro-life grassroots organizations to promote life-affirming policies and to defend against pro-abortion policies.
Congressman Michael Guest represents Mississippi’s Third Congressional District. He serves on the House Committee on Homeland Security and the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
