This week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., reintroduced seven pieces of what he termed “pro-family, pro-life legislation.”

“Families are the most fundamental and important institution in America, and they are central to the fight for life. We can and must do more to support American families. In the 118th Congress, I will continue to advocate for policies that provide parents with real support,” said Rubio.

Below is the list of bills Rubio reintroduced:

Providing for Life Act. First introduced in September 2022, the legislation combines existing Rubio legislation with new, pro-family proposals to provide comprehensive support for pregnant and new moms, as well as their young children. Rubio released the pro-family framework in June 2022 following the Dobbs decision. U.S. Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Iowa, will introduce the House companion.

New Parents Act. First introduced in March 2019 and reintroduced in September 2021, the legislation creates a voluntary mechanism to fund paid leave by allowing new parents to use a portion of their Social Security earnings after the birth or adoption of a child.

Lifting Local Communities Act. First introduced in August 2022, the legislation would make it easier for faith-based organizations to apply for and receive government grants and other types of funding without fear of arbitrary religious limitations or vindictive litigation.

Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act. First introduced in January 2019 and reintroduced in January 2021, the legislation would make it a federal crime for physicians to perform an abortion on a minor from another state without parental consent. U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., will introduce the House companion.

Helping HANDS for Families Act. First introduced in November 2022, the legislation would empower civil institutions, such as nonprofit organizations and churches, to better meet child welfare needs in the communities they serve.

Community Mentors for Moms Act. First introduced in August 2022, the legislation would create a grant program to fund integrated mentoring services for low-income mothers. U.S. Rep. Carol Miller, R-WV, will introduce the House companion.

Standing with Moms Act. First introduced in July 2022, the legislation would create Life.gov, a federal clearinghouse of pro-life resources, services, and information for pregnant and parenting mothers. U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC, introduced the House companion.

Rubio weighed in on why he was bringing the bills back in a Medium post.
