Republican State of the Union rebuttal will be delivered by Sen. Katie Britt. (Part-1)

Washington — Sen. Katie Britt called former President Donald Trump two days after an Alabama Supreme Court verdict threatened fertility facilities.

Britt wanted Trump, on a plane to South Carolina, to comprehend the circumstances. Already preventing in vitro fertilization at clinics across the state was the court's judgment that frozen embryos are children under state law. Britt told Trump the Republican Party should adopt the practice because it is pro-life and pro-family.

Trump stated that he would “strongly support the availability of IVF,” and he urged Alabama lawmakers to protect the therapy within hours of the meeting. “I got a call from Katie Britt, a very wonderful young senator in Alabama,” Trump told Sean Hannity several days later. And I said, we want that. We seek aid. We support women.”

Britt is using her power and expertise as a former congressional staffer and mother to create a unique role in the party after a year in the Senate. In a dangerous political climate, she represents a new generation of Republicans as the youngest female senator. Britt will provide the Republican response to President Joe Biden's State of the Union speech on Thursday night.

At this decisive moment in our country’s history, it’s time for the next generation to step up and preserve the American Dream for our children and our grandchildren,” Britt said, with congressional leaders releasing her response.

Britt, 42, was elected to the Senate in 2022 following a contentious primary fight in which Trump shifted from supporting former Republican Rep. Mo Brooks to Britt. Britt campaigned on her Christian faith and “Alabama First,” echoing Trump’s “America First” rhetoric.

Britt promised to be a “mama on a mission” in Washington after being elected. After her inauguration, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell named Britt one of numerous aides who attend weekly leadership meetings. Due to her age and being the only Republican senator with school-aged children, she said she provided a critical viewpoint to Washington that was often lacking.

In announcing Britt's party response last week, McConnell hailed her “an unapologetic optimist” who “wasted no time in becoming a leading voice.” Britt has made immigration a priority in her year in office, engaging in early Senate border accord negotiations before leaving out and voting against it. She co-authored a bipartisan internet kid protection measure.

After Hamas' Oct. 7 attack, she joined a delegation of senators visiting Israel and spoke emotionally and forcefully at a press conference, wearing a large diamond cross that rarely leaves her neck: “Make no mistake, I believe that people of all faiths can exist in peace and prosperity,” she said. “But I do not believe that good can exist with evil.”
