President-elect Trump has named pro-life Congressman Tom Price as his nominee for HHS Secretary — the top position at the federal Department of Health and Human Services.

In addition to naming Rep. Price as his choice for head of HHS, Trump has also named pro-life Senator Jeff Sessions as his Attorney General and pro-life Governor Nikki Haley as his UN ambassador.

According to the National Right to Life Committee, Rep. Price has voted pro-life 100% of the time during his time in Congress. The Susan B. Anthony List has also awarded Rep. Price a 100% pro-life rating. In April of 2005, he voted in favor of restricting interstate transport of minors to get abortions. In May of the same year, he voted against allowing human embryonic stem cell research.

In January of 2007, Rep. Price voted to grant the pre-born equal protection under 14th Amendment, and he also voted against expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines.

In January of 2011, Rep. Price supported prohibiting federal funding to groups like Planned Parenthood. In May of the same year, he supported the prohibition of federal funding for abortion and a ban on federal healthcare coverage that would include abortion. In July of 2011, Rep. Price supported an effort to bar funding for abortion under federal Obamacare plans.

In 2012, Rep. Price told a reporter that Obamacare’s birth control mandate that forced employers to fund even abortifacient birth control was “a trampling on religious freedom and religious liberty in this country.”

As recently as 2013, Rep. Price has made his stand against taxpayer-funded abortion clear, saying it is essential that no taxpayer dollars are used for abortions. In January of 2013, he supported the Protect Life Act, which was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. In his statement for the Protect Life Act, which would have ensured no taxpayer dollars are used to fund abortions, Price noted:

Today, House Republicans upheld our pledge to honor the concerns of the majority of Americans and ensure that no hard-earned taxpayer dollars are used for abortions. This is a fundamental step in our efforts to protect the sanctity of life.
