AFW Statement on Senator Tuberville’s Block of Pentagon Nominees

May 23rd, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, America First Works Executive Director, Ashley Hayek, released the following statement regarding Senator Tommy Tuberville’s (R-AL) efforts to stand firm against the Department of Defense’s (DoD) radical abortion policy, blocking promotions by unanimous consent:

“Senator Tuberville is righteously fighting to stop the DoD from spending taxpayer dollars on elective abortions. The Pentagon is not Planned Parenthood. It should focus on advancing our national defense and security goals, not allocating taxpayer-funded federal resources to abortions. Secretary Lloyd Austin can reverse course at any time but has made it clear that tax-payer-funded abortion is a higher priority than his DoD nominations. This is a disgrace. Biden’s radical social agenda at the DoD needs to end immediately. Until it does, Senator Tuberville is right to hold the line.”
