Rep. Tenney Introduces MOMS Act in Washington


Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-24) joined Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach (MN-07) on Wednesday in introducing the More Opportunities for Moms to Succeed (MOMS) Act, providing critical support to new moms during and after their pregnancy, empowering women to choose life and raise happy, healthy babies.

“The right to life is one of the most fundamental principles outlined in our Constitution,” said Congresswoman Tenney. “It is critical that we provide pregnant women with the vital resources and critical support they need to choose life. Following the second anniversary of the monumental Dobbs Decision, I am honored to join my colleague Rep. Fischbach in leading the MOMS Act, which ensures that mothers receive the physical, emotional, and financial support necessary to carry their pregnancies to term. We must empower expecting mothers to choose life and support pregnant women, new mothers, and both their unborn and born babies.”

“Many women feel unprepared when they get pregnant, and I am committed to empowering all women and ensuring they feel supported in choosing life,” said Congresswoman Fischbach. “The MOMS Act supports women before, during, and after they give birth, improving access to resources and making sure women have all the resources at their fingertips to help them confidently carry to term and raise their child. I am so proud to support legislation that supports new mothers and their children.”

The bill was cosponsored by Representatives Diana Harshbarger (TN-01), Ashley Hinson (IA-02), and Doug Lamborn (CO-05).
