Pro-Choice Voter Guide: Missouri District 07
Rep. Billy Long
Rep. Billy Long (R) is anti-choice. He is the incumbent.
Rep. Long earned a 0-percent score in NARAL Pro-Choice America's 2011 Congressional Record on Choice.
Voted twice to block Planned Parenthood from receiving any federal funds, which would have denied millions of Americans access to contraception, cancer screenings, and other basic medical care.
Voted for H.R.3, a bill that would ban abortion coverage in state health-insurance exchanges; impose tax penalties on small businesses and many individuals who purchase private health plans that include abortion coverage; and make permanent several restrictions that block many women from accessing abortion care.
Voted to allow hospitals to refuse to provide emergency abortion care to women who could die without it.
Rep. Long said,"I am 100 percent pro-life. I believe in the sanctity of human life, that life begins at conception, and in protecting the rights of the unborn."
"I have co-sponsored several pro-life bills. If passed, these bills will establish that life begins at conception, prevent tax payer dollars from funding abortions, and ensure that no funds provided under Title X should be awarded to entities which perform services for, or provide funds to, another entity which performs abortions."
Jim Evans (D) is presumed to be pro-choice.
