Today U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (3rd Dist.-Texas) released the following statement on new legislation he co-sponsored, the Right to Life Act.  Introduced today, the Act would provide constitutional protection to all unborn children from the moment of conception.  

The bill introduction coincides with the annual March for Life and the anniversary of the landmark case of Roe. v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.

According to the Pro-Life Action League, the estimated total number of abortions since the 1973 decision is over 46 million; there are currently 1.3 million abortions performed each year in the United States.

“It’s time we stand up for life and stand up for the unborn.  The Right to Life Act does what the Supreme Court refused to do in Roe v. Wade; the Right to Life Act protects the unborn.  

“I firmly believe that life begins at conception….and it’s a child, not a choice.  The Right to Life Act will end the culture of abortion as we know it and overturn Roe v. Wade once and for all.”
