The Right to Life
Clark Jolley believes that Life begins at conception, and has always been a strong and consistent supporter of the Rights of the Unborn.
His record on Pro-Life issues is unwavering:
- In 2011, Clark Jolley was the Senate author of the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act”, which restricts abortions other than in the instances of the life of the mother being in danger after the infant passed 20 weeks in utero.
- In 2010, Clark was the principal Senate author of two significant pro-life bills in the 2010 legislative session to re-institute pro-life policies which were struck down by courts for being bundled together into a single piece of legislation. After a veto by Governor Henry, he successfully convinced his colleagues to override Governor Henry's veto.
- Clark Jolley has never supported-- nor will ever support--public funding of abortions
- He has always supported the rights of parents to be as involved as possible in pregnancy decisions of a minor child.
