WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representatives Brian Mast (FL-18) released the following statement in response to the draft decision allegedly representing the views of Justice Samuel Alito in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturning Roe v. Wade: 

“I fought on battlefields to protect the innocent and uphold the Constitution.  Abortion does neither.  

As a soldier, I’ve seen what true evil looks like.  But as a father, I’ve seen pure innocence.  There’s no doubt in my mind that every heartbeat of an innocent child is worth protecting.  

This decision has the opportunity to protect millions of vulnerable, unborn babies, and it is undoubtedly the right one.”
