Washington, D.C. – On the anniversary of the tragic Roe v. Wade ruling, thousands of Americans flocked to Washington, D.C. to participate in the annual March for Life. In support of the rally and its participants, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) – a staunch pro-life advocate – released the following statement:
“Our Great Nation was founded upon the idea that ALL people are ‘endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.’ And the first right mentioned in our Declaration of Independence is that of Life. We must do all we can to uphold this most fundamental value. That is why I have consistently cosponsored and voted for legislation that protects the sanctity of human life, which begins at conception.
“Today, millions of Americans stand together – whether they are in Washington D.C. or at home – so that those who cannot speak for themselves do have a voice. But we cannot rest. Therefore I look forward to joining you all as we continue the important work of fully protecting our God-given right to Life for ALL, including our most innocent.”
Congressman Johnson is a co-sponsor of pro-life legislation including the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 36), the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act (H.R. 217), and the Health Care Conscience Rights Act.
