Pro-Life Day at the Capitol!

April 23, 2024
9:00AM - 3:00PM


Join us on Tuesday, April 23rd for Pro-Life Day at the Capitol!

Please note that due to the fluctuation of the schedule at the State Capitol, the times listed below are tentative.  Please check back here in the days before the event to receive an updated time!

At this time, there are no pro-life bills being heard in Committee on Tuesday.

There will be a pro-life bill, the Expansion of Safe Haven Baby Box Act (HB 891), up for vote on the House Floor after the House convenes at 3pm. HB 891 allows for the installment of Safe Haven Baby Boxes in 24/7 fire stations and other similar facilities in addition to hospitals. The Safe Haven Baby Boxes are a last resort option for a mother to place her baby safely for adoption. Please lobby your representative to support this important legislation!
