A resolution recognizing Father’s Day and the role of father engagement

Resolved, That the Senate— (1) recognizes the important role of fathers in increasing positive maternal health outcomes and reducing maternal mortality and morbidity; (2) acknowledges that father engagement efforts provide continuous physical and emotional support, which can contribute to healthier pregnancies, safer deliveries, and successful postpartum recoveries; (3) acknowledges that sustained engagement by a father throughout the life of their child is a privileged responsibility that fulfills the father as much as the child; and (4) wishes all fathers and father figures in the United States a happy Father’s Day.
