Representative Darin LaHood

Representing the 18th District of Illinois

Right to Life

As a strong practicing Catholic and father of three boys with my wife, I am proud and honored to be pro-life. Our government exists in order to preserve “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” I firmly believe that we must stand up and protect the sanctity of life from the moment of conception on. I will continue to serve as a proud and active advocate in Congress for protecting life and preserving the rights of the unborn.
