    THOMPSON of Pennsylvania asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania. Mr. Speaker, I rise to recognize and thank the thousands--tens of thousands--of Americans who traveled to Washington, D.C., to participate in today's March for Life.



    They came here today to remember a somber occasion, the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. It has been 42 years since that fateful decision, and while years have worn on, its impact on this country have not diminished.

    Those who participated in the march today came from across the Nation, from every State--despite the cold and the weather--for one reason: the next generation of Americans depends on it.

    Millions of Americans have been unable to pursue their dreams and defend their inalienable rights because of abortion. This is not justice. This is not freedom. I stand with those who march for life. I honor those who march for life.

    This is my seventh March for Life since coming to Congress. Knowing that, I can promise that as long as the lives of innocent unborn children are at risk, there will be those who will make a stand against it.
