Excerpts:

“I’ll be there with you today, as I have been nearly every time . . . I’m going to stay with you. We’re going to stay with this until we get it done.”

. . .

“I believe, as I believe everybody behind me and here in front of me believes, that human life is sacred in all of its forms and begins at the moment of conception. That’s the moment that we must protect the life.”

. . .

“So I wrote a bill. It’s called the Heartbeat Protection Act, HR 490. What it says is that it requires an abortionist to check for a heartbeat before he can go forward to commit abortion. If he can detect a heartbeat then there will be no abortion because we know that heartbeat is certain proof that there is a live baby.”

. . .

“I’m tired of incrementalism. It’s time we get this done.”

. . .

“You’re the pro-life culture. You’re the network that gets this solved. You’re the network that saves lives.”

. . .

“The message you send to America today moves our souls and it saves lives. God bless you.”

Background:

On Friday, January 19, the 45th annual March for Life will be taking place in Washington, DC. The March for Life is the largest pro-life event in the world and “pays witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand,” a reference to the Supreme Court’s unconstitutional Roe v. Wade decision.
