Press Release

WASHINGTON—Congressman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) released the following statement to mark the 44th Anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade:

“As we mark the 44th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe vs. Wade, it is my hope that we will take this opportunity to remember the millions of precious human lives ended by the unspeakable tragedy of abortion.

“As Americans, we share a sacred responsibility to protect the innocent and defend the rights of those who are unable to defend themselves. As a matter of morality, history, science, reason, and most of all faith, I can come to no other conclusion but that every human life begins at conception and every life is worthy of protection. 

“On January 27th, thousands of citizens will take action to defend life by participating in the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. Many more in Texas and across the country will stand with them at local events fighting for the rights of the unborn. I applaud all those who choose to take part in these demonstrations and continue to pray for the day when all Americans will decide to protect the unalienable right to life.”
