    GARRETT asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. GARRETT. Mr. Speaker, today, as we remember a somber moment in our Nation's history, we must also remember what values our Nation was founded on and remember we must always protect those values.

    Our Declaration of Independence promises ``life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,'' and as the chairman of the Constitution Caucus, I pledge to fight for the liberties recognized by our Founding Fathers.

    For 41 years, since ROE v. WADE, more than 56 million unborn children have been denied the undeniable and inalienable rights we hold so dear. Pro-abortion advocates may want Americans to believe abortion is an ordinary medical procedure, but ending a human life is never ordinary, and denying the most basic of rights--the right to life--to unborn children is not, and never will be, normal. Discrimination against a person based upon their age, their size or development should never be acceptable.

    I join my colleagues tonight to speak out for the value of human life because we must speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. We must continue to fight to protect the most fundamental right: the right to life.
