The Burden of the Economy is Now on the Backs of Mothers and Their Children

Washington, D.C. – The United States Senate Committee on the Budget will hold a hearing titled “No Rights to Speak of: The Economic Harms of Restricting Reproductive Freedom” today at 10 a.m. EST. Mrs. Leslie Ford, adjunct fellow at the Center on Opportunity and Social Mobility at American Enterprise Institute and Mrs. Tamra Call, MSN, RN, executive director at Obria Medical Clinic in Ames, Iowa, will testify.

Ahead of the hearing, SBA Pro-Life America’s Vice President of Communications Emily Erin Davis issued the following comment:

“I know firsthand what it’s like to be pregnant and poor in this country. I was living in a motel, with a rundown car, waiting tables just to get by. Because of this, there were many in my ear who felt my child and I were the perfect candidates for abortion. In their words, it was essential, due to my lack of finances and prospects,” said Davis. “Today, our federal government is that voice in the ear of every woman with an unplanned pregnancy. We look on as our government spends copious amounts of money and messaging to support and affirm disenfranchised communities all around the world. But when it comes to moms of unplanned pregnancies in America, their message is clear: you can’t do it. Their efforts now go to pushing abortion as our primary choice. Instead of incentivizing a pathway to a future for our families, our government now implies that we are doing the country a favor by getting rid of our child. This is what Democrats demand today, to use abortion to fix our economy on the backs of us, moms and our children. But it won’t fix anything.”

Houston Pregnancy Help Center’s Executive Director Sylvia Johnson, said:

“An economy that does not value and protect children is a dying economy. An economy built on the need to remove children from the equation is an abhorrent evil.”

Moms who were pushed towards abortion because they faced financial hardship spoke out, saying:


 “At 16, I was told that I was young and poor and that I should abort my baby. I chose life. We had nothing figured out that day when I made that decision, but people came along side me to support me, and my daughter is 30 years old today with beautiful children of her own. Even if I had chosen abortion that day, it still would not have changed my poverty level. Every mom and baby deserve to know their value.”


“I am no stranger to hard times, and unfortunately, I am no stranger to abortion. That is why I dedicate my life to empowering women to not make that same choice. Having an abortion did not make my life any better. My life and my children’s lives are worth far more than our economic output. There are so many resources and people out there to help you. You don’t have to carry the burden of pain that I did.”


“After experiencing the anguish and heartache of abortion, I chose life for my daughter. My child is not a drain on our economy – it is terrible to reduce anyone to economic worth. I think that we should focus on helping all mothers and children thrive as we are blessings to our communities, not a drain on the economy.”
