Glenn Grothman: Sanctity of life from conception until natural death

Senator Glenn Grothman believes in the sanctity and dignity of life from conception until natural death. He has authored and passed numerous, important pro-life bills throughout his time in the state legislature and has steadfastly supported many more.

Glenn will continue to protect the sanctity of life at the national level and fight to win back the ground that has been lost at the hands of the federal government controlled by pro-abortion forces.
