The Pro-Life Movement is Alive and Wellby Representative Tim Walberg

WALBERG. I thank Congressman Smith and Congressman Lipinski for
their leadership in the Pro-Life Caucus. I thank Congressman Smith for
his active involvement in promoting life not only here in America, but
all over the world.
Someone once said: Tell a lie long enough and it becomes the truth. That statement, sadly, is often true, but the lie is still a lie. Roe v. Wade was such a lie. It didn't offer freedom. It didn't offer opportunity or choice. It offered death and a diminished life, to boot.
I will never forget the conversation with my wife over 40 years now in the hospital recovery room when she had just given birth to our first child. She said to me in that recovery room, with tears in her eyes: ``Wow, I have just added a life to the world.
That is why pro-life and pro-women go hand in hand. She is the only being designed and capable to bring new life into the world. It is a God-given gift. We honor and celebrate that gift. We who are pro-life honor her for that.
Let's give all that we can to honor and encourage our citizens to know the truth of the Psalmist who said: ``Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward.'' And that is the truth.
