Life & the LawAbortion

Testimony of Dr. Christina Francis before the U.S. House of Rep. Energy & Commerce Committee, Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations

On July 19, 2022, the U.S. House of Representative’s Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a hearing titled “Roe Reversal: The Impacts of Taking Away the Constitutional Right to an Abortion.” Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) Associate Scholar, board-certified Ob/Gyn, and board member and CEO-elect of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG), Dr. Christina Francis, was the Republican minority’s lone witness in the hearing among five witnesses advocating for abortion. Noting her over 10 years of experience as an Ob/Gyn in Indiana and at a mission hospital in rural Kenya, Dr. Francis talked about her focus on bioethics, sharing the truth about the dangers of abortion, and fighting for human rights, specifically the right to life, around the globe. Dr. Francis provided information on: the physical and mental health risks that women face following an abortion, the need for more comprehensive and accurate maternal mortality data in the United States, and the extraordinary risks that the abortion-by-mail-on-demand push by the abortion industry poses to women, especially those who are economically disadvantaged and those in rural settings. Dr. Francis spent a large portion of her testimony dispelling and rebutting dangerous lies propagated by the abortion industry regarding the effects that the recent Dobbs Supreme Court decision would have on doctors’ abilities to treat miscarriage, ectopic pregnancies, and other life-threatening conditions.

 

Dr. Francis stated, “Our patients are empowered when they are given accurate information, fully informed consent and real healthcare solutions rather than a political narrative.”
