I will always work for the life of those who don’t have a voice.

When I was just beginning my practice in medicine 30 years ago, a 16-year-old girl came to my office seeking a referral for an abortion. I talked with the distressed young woman about the importance of life and asked her to reconsider her position. I encouraged her to reach out to her family, talk to them about her pregnancy, and ask them for help. After counseling, the young woman did reconsider her options and reached out to her family for the support, she needed to make that difficult decision.
In 2019, while attending a parade in St. James, I had another young woman come up to me and ask, “Are you, Dr. Collis?” I responded that I was. At that point, she said to me “I thank God for you every day because 30 years ago you talked my mother out of having an abortion. Thank you for saving my life.” This was one of the most gratifying experiences I have ever had as a physician.
Every life is precious and deserves the chance to grow. As your representative in Congress, I will always work for the life of those who don’t have a voice.
