WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann participated in the 39th annual March for Life rally on the National Mall in Washington, D.C with thousands of other Americans who want to see Roe v. Wade overturned. Later today he will deliver a speech on the House floor about the sanctity of human life.
Below are Congressman Fleischmann’s floor remarks as prepared:
“I was honored to speak at the March for Life rally on the National Mall earlier today. Thousands of Americans came together in our cause to protect the sanctity of all human life, and voice our continued opposition to the decision made in Roe v. Wade. I am reminded each and every day how precious life is, and why we should stand up for its intrinsic value. It is our belief that life is sacred – from the moment of conception until the grave – that separates us from so many others in this world.
“Every abortion is a tragedy, but being pro-life isn’t just about conception to birth – it’s about the entire existence of a person. It encompasses more than just their physical well-being. A soul cannot flourish, and a person cannot prosper, if they aren’t first allowed to live. Being pro-life is also promoting faith, education, jobs, and the overall quality of life.
“I will continue to fight against the culture of abortion and fight for the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
