The Pro-Life Movement is Alive and Wellby Representative Tim Huelskamp
Posted on 2016-01-07
HUELSKAMP. Thank you, Congressman Smith. It is an honor, as
always, to join you this evening on this Special Order. I have told you
before and I will tell you again, thank you for your leadership. I
believe our efforts, though not fully successful, your efforts have
saved many lives in this country.
Mr. Speaker, yesterday the House voted to stop Federal funding from going to the evil abortion provider Planned Parenthood. It was another commonsense step in the many that our pro-life movement has made in our long, 43-year fight following the barbaric ruling of Roe v. Wade by an unelected, unaccountable U.S. Supreme Court.
Tragically, it has been said 57 million innocent babies have lost their lives to abortion since that woeful, woeful decision.
I have said it before and I will say it again, I am eternally grateful that the birth mothers of my wife and I's four adopted children chose life.
On January 21, one of those children, my daughter Rebecca, will arrive on a bus in Washington, D.C., along with dozens of her classmates from Benedictine College, in Atchison, Kansas, to again participate in the National March for Life the following day.
On that day, I will be joining thousand of Kansans in Topeka as we march, pray, speak, and celebrate the gift of our life in our State's capital. I am proud of our efforts, and I hope my colleagues will join me in demonstrating their dedication to the sanctity of all human life, whether it be in the home State or here in our Nation's Capital.
