March for Life

Floor Speech

Date: Jan. 21, 2015
Location: Washington, DC
Issues: Abortion


Mr. PITTENGER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor and respect of the thousands of people who will come to our city to rally to give support to the life of the unborn.

Twenty-five years ago while in London I saw a video that depicted the life, as they described it, of the baby. It wasn't anything less than a baby.

Mr. Speaker, I am a father, and I am a grandfather. I have got nine grandchildren. Every life is precious. Who is to know, Mr. Speaker, that that unborn baby might be the curer for cancer or might be the curer for Alzheimer's? Only God knows.

I thank the leadership for bringing forth this legislation tomorrow. I respect them for doing it. We need to rally in support to show our commitment to the life of the unborn.
