Mar 15, 2018 – President Donald Trump has nominated Mike Pompeo, former Kansas Congressman and
Director of the CIA, to become the next Secretary of State. Pompeo is pro-life and a strong pro-family
When he served in Congress, Pompeo co-sponsored the Sanctity of Human Life Act, which says “each
human life begins with fertilization, cloning, or its functional equivalent, at which time every human has all legal
and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood...”
He co-sponsored the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act that called for the prohibition of federal
funding to any group that performs abortions. Pompeo also co-sponsored a bill that would have included the
unborn child in 14th Amendment protections. He voted to prohibit abortion information at school health
centers, to prohibit federal funding for Planned Parenthood, and to defund the UN Population Fund.
Pompeo has consistently supported natural marriage. He opposed the repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell
policy as well as supported the federal Defense of Marriage Act and decried it being struck down.
Pompeo said, “As a Kansan, I hold a deep reverence for the sanctity of life, the solidarity of family, and the
solemnity of marriage. I will continue the fight to uphold these fundamental ideals each and every day.
“I am and always will be pro-life and will defend life from conception to natural death. I will continue to
oppose any taxpayer funding for abortion. I also fully support the traditional institution of marriage. Strong
families are the most important building block
POMPEO SUPPORTS LIFE AND FAMILY
