“After being sworn in, vowing to support and defend the Constitution, I confirmed White House judges and appointees, signed on to resolutions supporting the elimination of a known terrorist and a resolution to stop the partisan impeachment game,” she said. “And today I signed on to three important pro-life bills in the Senate recognizing the urgent need to protect the unborn.”
One of these bills would ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, another would make permanent a rule restricting federal funding for abortion services and the third requires medical care for fetuses that are still alive after an abortion procedure.
Staci Fox, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates, said Gov. Brian Kemp is using his appointee Loeffler to continue his attempt to chip away at access to abortions highlighted by last year’s so-called “heartbeat bill.”
“Now, he has appointed a US Senator who can push his anti-woman, anti-abortion agenda in Washington,” Fox said. “This is more proof that we must elect someone who actually represents the views of Georgians in 2020.”
Prior to taking office, Loeffler said one of her main goals is to serve as an advocate for President Donald Trump.
She has now signed onto a measure that would allow the Senate to dismiss impeachment charges if the House doesn’t send them within a certain time frame, a reaction to Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to delay the transmission of articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
Loeffler also is cosponsoring a bill demanding that the House immediately transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate.
Finally, she joined most other Republican senators in cosponsoring a bill commending Trump for ordering the military operation that led to the death of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and praising members of the military and intelligence communities who carried out the mission.
Loeffler said her travels around to state to meet with GOP voters inspired her legislative agenda, and now she is making good on her promises to those constituents.
“I’m honored to serve as a new voice to help grow our base and share our conservative values,” she said.
