Defending the Most Vulnerable Population

Floor Speech

Date: Jan. 11, 2023
Location: Washington, DC


Mr. BERGMAN. Madam Speaker, I rise today in defense of the most vulnerable population, the unborn.

As we consider the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and the concurrent resolution to condemn attacks on pro-life pregnancy centers, I hope that it is those innocent lives on our hearts and minds.

I implore my colleagues to stand with me in pursuit of doing what is right by, as I say, those voiceless and vulnerable and to consider the divine worth of every human life that we have taken an oath to serve, from womb to tomb.

It is written in Psalm 139: ``For You created my innermost being; You knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.''

We should do all in our power to stand for life and to ensure that the unborn get to live out each of the days that God ordained for them before one ever came to be.

Let us unite as a legislature to determine that, in the United States, we will preserve the most basic right to life and the ability of good-willed Americans to provide life-affirming care in pursuit of that cause.
