    NEUGEBAUER. Mr. Speaker, next Wednesday is a very solemn day in America. It is the 41st anniversary of ROE v. WADE; and I think that that was the day that a blemish was put on America, a blemish put on a country that was founded on the principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But, unfortunately, we denied almost 56 million individuals that opportunity. A lot of people use the word ``choice'' when they are talking about abortion, but unfortunately we didn't give 56 million people a choice.

    One of the great pleasures of my life is I just spent Christmas with my family and, more importantly, with my children and my grandchildren. I have two sons and four grandchildren.

    {time} 1730 One of the pleasures that Dana and I have on our mantle at home in our bedroom are the sonograms of each of our grandchildren, our first glimpse at what our loving grandchildren were going to look like, and a clear indication that life begins at conception.

    So my hope while I am here in Congress, and I will continue the fight, is that we remove this blemish from this great Nation; that we make this a Nation recommitted to those principles it was founded on of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If we cannot be a Nation of life, truly can we uphold any principles? Mr. SMITH of New Jersey. I thank my friend for his very, very wise comments and very eloquent comments.
