Father Engagement Resolution

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.
