Rep. Julia Letlow (R-LA) discussed Friday the “miracle” of life and her belief that the pro-life movement “will prevail” despite palpable “darkness.”
“There is a lot of darkness right now … but God calls us to be a light,” she told Faithwire after speaking at the March For Life. “I’m just making sure that I’m fighting every day … for those who don’t have a voice, the unborn.”
Letlow continued, “I want you to be encouraged. There is light, and we will prevail.”
Watch her powerful comments:
Last year, the congresswoman took office just months after her husband, Luke Letlow, won the same congressional seat but died days before being inaugurated.
Julie Letlow decided to run in her husband’s place — and won the majority of her district.
Now, she’s serving in Washington, D.C., where she said her goal is to serve constituents and fight for those who she said have “no voice.”
“If people say one thing about me … that, ‘She served her people, and it wasn’t about her’ — if they say that about me, then I’ve done everything I was supposed to do here,” she said.
Letlow also spoke about her pro-life upbringing and how motherhood drove her commitment to the cause.
“I have always considered myself to be pro-life. I grew up in a strong Christian family who taught me those values young,” she said, noting that she fully realized her commitment when she held her firstborn and “saw the miracle that is life.”

Letlow continued, “I wanted to be a true advocate for the cause.”
The congresswoman is confident the pro-life movement will be victorious in the coming months as the Supreme Court inches toward its final decision on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which could derail portions — if not all — of Roe v. Wade.
“The momentum is so great for us,” she said, offering praise for those who spent decades ceaselessly fighting for the pro-life cause. “This is the perfect example of why you should never give up.”
