“Life is a precious gift from God, and every human is made in God’s image,” Carl said.

Congressman Jerry Carl VIA CSPAN

U.S. Representative Jerry Carl, R-AL, yesterday issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s ruling in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health.

“I applaud the Supreme Court for overruling the disastrous Roe v. Wade decision. State legislators now have the opportunity to create laws protecting the lives of millions of innocent babies. Together, we can build a culture that respects life.

“Life is a precious gift from God, and every human is made in God’s image. Every person, whether born or unborn, is a life worth protecting. Protecting life from conception to death is a top priority of mine, and I’m proud to be an advocate for life because I firmly believe our society has a responsibility to defend and protect life.”
