Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL) announced last weekend that he had received an A+ rating from the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) Pro-Life America team for his performance as a member of the 117th Congress.

According to the Rep. Webster press release, the rating system provided by SBA Pro-Life America is based on the Congressman’s decisions on important bills during the 117th Congress. Out of the 32 bills that the organization considered a key vote, Webster voted in lock step with SBA Pro-Life America 30 times out of 32 (93.75%).

The organization commended Webster’s efforts, stating that he “stood up against the pro-abortion agenda of the Biden-Harris administration and Pelosi Democrats who are actively working to expand abortion access and abortion funding,” and that “Rep. Webster has voted consistently to defend the lives of the unborn and infants.”

Moreover, Webster said that he will “never waver” on the Pro-life issue.

“The right to life is one of three unalienable rights promised to all individuals in the Declaration of Independence,” said Rep. Webster. “I thank SBA Pro-Life America for recognizing my actions to protect the rights of our most vulnerable – the unborn. Throughout my years serving Florida and my country, I have and will continue to fight for and defend the right to life. I will never waver.”

Almost two weeks ago, Webster voted for Rep. Kat Cammack’s Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act, which looks to protect the rights of babies who survive abortion procedures. He gave a statement following the passage of the bill in the House.

“It’s unconscionable that babies born alive after failed abortions can be denied medical care to save their life,” said Rep. Webster. “It’s tragic that Democrats blocked this bill for 4 years, but I couldn’t be more thrilled to see it pass the House on the 3rd day of this Congress. H.R. 26 is about basic decency and sanctity of life, extending to infants born after a failed abortion the same legal protections and medical care as any other newborn. I urge the U.S. Senate to take it up quickly.”

Webster has not made it known whether he will run for the 119th Congress.

Just this week, the Florida Supreme Court agreed to listen to arguments against the 15-week abortion ban that Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law in 2022.
