Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) spoke on the Senate floor regarding the 46th annual March for Life, to be held in Washington, D.C. this Friday.
“The story of American history is the story of our nation overcoming oppression, protecting the vulnerable in our laws and with our lives. From Independence Hall to the Bill of Rights, from the abolition of slavery to universal suffrage to the Civil Rights movement, to the triumph over Nazism, fascism, and communism… the American people have fought through prejudice and pride to assert and to defend the equal dignity of every member of our human family.
For all the powerful forces still arrayed against it, the right to life remains a part of who we are – a common heritage and, history will prove, a common destiny. That is why the March grows every year. Not only here in Washington, but in solidarity marches in state capitals around the country.
The struggle for life is just the latest battle in America’s long, noble crusade for justice, equality, freedom, and dignity. It is a fight worth having, a fight worthy of our heritage, a fight worthy of our children. One day soon, Mr. President: we’re going to win this one too. And until that day, America will continue to march.”
