Sen. Cornyn Statement On 2011 March For Life
U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, today issued the following statement regarding the 2011 March for Life rally:
"Today many Texans are among the thousands of Americans who have come to Washington to march in defense of the unborn. I welcome them to our nation's capital and I commend their level of commitment to this most worthy cause. Together, we must continue to work to defend the defenseless and speak out for those without a voice. All of God's children deserve a chance at life, and I am proud so many Texans join me in sharing that core belief."
Sen. Cornyn has a strong record defending human life, including co-sponsoring the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, which the Senate passed in 2003 and was signed into law. Sen. Cornyn continues to fight against the use of any federal dollars to subsidize abortions and most recently helped to block an amendment to the Defense Authorization bill that would have allowed abortions at military hospitals.
