It's important for prolife citizens to know who their legislators are and what they think about life issues. We asked all prolife representatives from Michigan three questions to get each legislator's views about the importance of being prolife. Each month, we'll highlight the responses from one representative and provide you with ways to keep in touch or contact the representative.
Rep. Bill Huizenga
Michigan Second Congressional District - Holland, Muskegon, Cadillac
1217 Longworth House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515

Q: What does it mean to be prolife?
A: Being prolife means living your beliefs, and I strongly believe in the sanctity of life and that unborn children at any stage of development are granted the right to life. It means not only advocating for the life of the child, but helping parents work through those decisions, and helping them facilitate either having the child or placing the child into adoption. It also means that at the end of life, not interfering with the natural death process and allow it to take place with dignity and respect.
I served as my church's representative to Michigan Right to Life for 10 years, and my wife currently serves on the board of the Lakeshore Pregnancy Center, which promotes life through crisis centers in Michigan, including Allegan, Holland, Allendale, and Grand Haven. I will continue to be a tireless voice for the unborn children and will work to ensure that these precious lives are protected.
