FIRST IN DAILY SIGNAL: Republican Sen. Pete Ricketts of Nebraska is calling on President Joe Biden and his federal agencies to show inclusivity toward pro-life Americans by flying pro-life flags during October, which is Respect Life Month.

The Nebraska senator sent 20 letters to Biden administration agencies with this request, first obtained by The Daily Signal…

“Many Americans felt the White House’s Pride celebration earlier this month and the flying of the Pride flag at the White House was a statement that you and your administration only celebrate some Americans,” he noted.

“I sincerely hope that is not the case. By also honoring Respect Life Month later this year and flying the pro-life flag, you would send a powerful statement that our country celebrates Americans of all beliefs and is committed to protecting innocent and vulnerable life.”

In a statement to The Daily Signal, Ricketts said that many Americans took Biden’s decision to fly the Pride flag at the White House as a sign that the administration only celebrates a certain class of Americans.

“By flying the pro-life flag during Respect Life Month, President Biden would send a much-needed signal that our country respects the dignity of every American, including the unborn,” he added. “I’m committed to making this a reality and will be urging my colleagues to join this effort as we approach October.”
