Congressman Billy Long (MO-07) voted today in favor of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017. He released the following statement regarding his vote:

“The American people agree, taxpayer money should not be funding abortions,” said Rep. Long. “I've always made it a priority to support legislation that saves lives and that’s why I voted in favor of H.R. 7. In 1973 when the Supreme Court said it was legal to kill an unborn child I didn't agree then and I still don't. Someone needs to fight for those that can't fight for themselves.”
