Hyde Smith will lead Senate Pro-Life Caucus in 118th Congress

Senate Organization Dedicated to Advancing Pro-Life Policies, Stopping Radical Pro-Abortion Agenda

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), a pro-life advocate, today announced that she will serve as the 118th Congress chair of the Senate Pro-Life Caucus, the central organizing point for Senators to protect and defend the right to life from conception.

Hyde-Smith assumes the chairmanship from U.S. Senator Steve Daines (R-Mont.), who founded the caucus in 2019 to advance pro-life policies, vet legislation through a pro-life lens, and facilitate collaboration between pro-life organizations and Senators.  The caucus also provides important oversight to hold the Biden administration accountable for its radical pro-abortion policies.

“The success of Mississippi’s challenge to Roe v. Wade has changed the landscape of the pro-life movement by returning the power to the people and their elected representatives to protect life, something that requires us to renew and readjust how we work to advance our cause,” Hyde-Smith said.  “As chairman of the Pro-Life Caucus, I will lead the fight in the Senate to protect unborn children and their mothers from abortion, and to combat the misinformation and extreme agenda of the abortion industry.”

“It is an honor to continue the great work Senator Daines began in forming the Senate Pro-Life Caucus,” she said.

With the overturning of Roe v. Wade last summer, the caucus has focused on:

  • Blocking Senate Democrats and the Biden administration’s abortion agenda
  • Advancing critical protections for unborn children
  • Stopping taxpayer funding for abortion and the abortion industry
  • Stopping the trafficking of dangerous chemical abortion drugs
  • Advancing policies to support pregnant mothers in choosing life

In the recently-concluded 117th Congress, the Pro-Life Caucus successfully: 

  • Protected the Hyde Amendment and other longstanding pro-life protections to prevent taxpayer funding for abortion and protect conscience rights
  • Defeated Senate Democrats’ radical Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act, which would impose late-term abortion on demand and eliminate virtually all limits on abortion

Led Senate Republicans in support of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Dobbs that returned the issue of abortion to the people and their elected representatives.
