Pro-Life Democrats participated, virtually and in person, at the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., last week. This year’s theme, “Together Strong, Life Unites,” would not be possible without pro-life Democratic voices, like Rep. Angie Hatton (D-KY), who consistently and courageously speaks up for the unborn, said Kristen Day, Executive Director of Democrats For Life of America.
“I am honored to march today with other leaders of the pro-life movement as a representative of Democrats For Life,” said Hatton, of Whitesburg. “There are 21 million pro-life Democrats across America. It is important for Democrats to be included to keep with the theme of this year’s March for Life: Together Strong: Life Unites.”
According to March for Life officials, the pandemic and current security measures in Washington forced the event to be virtual. A small group of pro-life leaders Marched to the Supreme Court. Representative Hatton represented pro-life Democrats and Democrats For Life.
“We are extremely proud of representatives like Angie Hatton who fight for equal rights for all human beings, regardless of abilities or circumstances, and fight for protection for the most vulnerable,” said Day, the DFLA director. “We are so appreciative and impressed by her record. Rep. Hatton’s pro-life for the whole life view earned her our pro-life legislator of the year award.”
Representative Hatton serves as the Minority Whip in the Kentucky State House. As a consensus builder, she’s deeply popular in her district and ran unopposed in 2018 and 2020. This speaks volumes to who she is — a representative for her constituents. Rep. Hatton is proudly pro-life: as a Democrat, she has been instrumental in the passage of laws that not only protect pre-born life but ban discriminatory abortions based on race, gender, or disability.
“My goal is to shine a light on the many democratic policies that, in addition to anti-abortion laws, help to alleviate the need for abortions,” said Hatton. “We need to promote our pro-life for the whole life philosophy.”
