POMPEO asked and was given permission to address the House for 1
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. POMPEO. Mr. Speaker, tomorrow hundreds of young people from
across Kansas will join thousands of Americans, young and old, on The
National Mall for the March for Life. They are here to remind us all
that, in the midst of all the important issues we talk about here in
Washington, D.C., every single life is a gift.
This year is the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Since then, over 55 million abortions have been performed in the United States. This stain upon our Nation has been allowed to continue for far too long. Yet in the face of this continuing tragedy, I am encouraged by the fact that today the pro-life movement is stronger than ever.
I see the evidence of that movement in the eyes of the young people, young people that will come to Washington tomorrow from Benedictine College, from Conway Springs High School, from Bishop Carroll High School, from Kapaun Mt. Carmel, and from both Kansas State University and Newman University. It will encourage me to continue my efforts to protect the unborn each and every day.
While some just talk the talk, tomorrow the young people from Kansas will walk the walk, and I look forward to joining with them on this very special and important day to protect this very important right.
