Marty Jackley’s Commitment to Life

  • I believe life begins at conception and that all life is sacred. I will continue to fight for the protection of the ‘sanctity of life’ from the moment of conception until natural death and I will continue to speak out to change people’s hearts and minds.
  • I believe abortion is the taking of an innocent human life.
  • I believe Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and should be reversed.
  • I believe the unborn children of our state and nation have an intrinsic, natural, fundamental right to life that must be protected.
  • I believe all human beings are endowed by their Creator with intrinsic and inalienable rights by virtue of their existence and humanity.
  • I oppose the harvesting, trafficking, and selling of baby parts.  I introduced legislation that passed to make such activity illegal.
  • I support laws that require a waiting period between an initial consultation and an abortion procedure.
  • I support laws that require abortion providers to give women detailed information about the procedure, potential risks and alternatives to abortion.
  • I support pre-abortion counseling to ensure that pregnant mothers receive accurate information when considering an abortion.
  • I support laws that require minors seeking an abortion to notify their parent or guardian.
  • I supported legislation that passed to increase the penalty for performing an abortion on an unborn child capable of feeling pain.
  • I will fight to defend the state’s rights to regulate abortions. I have filed numerous multi-state actions to defend state laws regulating abortion.
  • I will always speak up and fight for those who cannot speak for themselves.
  • I oppose assisted-suicide.
  • I believe we are all created in the image of God and that we all have intrinsic value. (Genesis 1:27; James 3:9b;).
  • I also believe God forbids the intentional shedding of innocent blood and the unborn, are undeniably, innocent. (Deuteronomy 19:10; Proverbs 6:16-19)
