Sending Office: Honorable Jody B. Hice
Sent By:

As we approach the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the annual March for Life, I wanted to remind you of my boss’ resolution, H.Res. 50 to
memorialize the unborn by lowering the United States flag to half-staff on the 22d day of January each year.
The goal is to encourage people across the country to fly their flags at half-staff on January 22nd to remind us as a nation to reflect on the meaning of the day. Text of the resolution is pasted below.

Cosponsors (34): Arrington, Babin, Biggs, Burchett, Chabot, Duncan, Fulcher, Gaetz, Gibbs, Gohmert, Gosar, Grothman, Guthrie, Hartzler, Hern, Joyce, Kelly, King, LaMalfa, Latta, Massie, Meadows, Mooney, Norman, Olson, Palazzo, Roe, Roy, Spano, Stewart,
Weber, Williams, Wright, Yoho

Memorializing the unborn by lowering the United States flag to half-staff on the 22d day of January each year.
Whereas, on January 22, 1973, the majority of the members of the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was a right secured by the Constitution; and
Whereas since that fateful day, over 60 million unborn children have perished: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives supports the recognition of the Day of Tears in the United States of America and that the citizens therein be encouraged to lower their flags to half-staff to mourn and honor the innocents who have lost their lives
to abortion.
