WASHINGTON, Jan. 22 /Standard Newswire/ -- U.S. Congressman Mike Pence gave the following speech from the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives today, on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Congressman Pence also will speak to thousands of pro-life Americans at the March for Life later today.
"Today millions of Americans--from the National Mall to prayer services in small town churches--will mark the sad 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the worst Supreme Court decision since Dred Scott.
"As most Americans know, it is simply morally wrong to end an unborn human life by abortion. But it is also morally wrong to take the taxpayer dollars of millions of pro-life Americans and use them to promote abortion at home or abroad.
"Many Americans fail to recognize the largest abortion provider in America is also the largest recipient of federal taxpayer dollars through Title X--this should not be.
"Yesterday, with more than 60 cosponsors, I re-introduced the 'Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act,' a bill that would deny any federal funding to Planned Parenthood of America.
"On this dark anniversary, let us rededicate ourselves to protecting the unborn and to protecting taxpayers on matters of conscience."
