Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after receiving the highest rank of “A+” from the Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life Scorecard for consistently voting for legislation to defend the lives of unborn children.  

“There is nothing more important a Member of Congress can do than defend life. Throughout my service in the House, I have made this one of my top priorities,” said Cole. “I am very proud of my pro-life voting record, and I am honored to receive an A+ from the Susan B. Anthony National Pro-Life Scorecard. I remain committed to being a voice for the most vulnerable, including unborn children.”

According to the Scorecard listing on the website, the SBA List cited the following regarding Cole’s exceptional A rating in defense of life:

Congressman Cole has voted consistently to protect the lives of the unborn as well as the consciences of taxpayers who don’t want their hard-earned tax dollars paying for abortion domestically or internationally. Rep. Cole has defended the Trump administration’s pro-life regulatory efforts from pro-abortion attacks to prohibit their implementation.

As Ranking Member in the House Labor, Health and Human Services Appropriations subcommittee, Congressman Cole offered an amendment to restore the Trump administration's conscience protection rule for FY2020 and offered a comprehensive pro-life amendment to restore policies for FY2021. He also offered a unanimous consent request for consideration of H.R. 962, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, and participated in the minority hearing on the Born-Alive bill.
