(THE BLAZE) – Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah is encouraging people to get vaccinated against COVID-19, saying that being pro-life is not limited to defending the unborn and that he does not want anyone else to pass away from the coronavirus.
"Being pro-life doesn't just mean advocating and protecting the unborn. I also care deeply for the living and don't want more people to die from #COVID19. Everyone that is able should get the vaccine," Romney tweeted, along with a link to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
There have been more than 34.6 million COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and more than 611,000 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
