“This week, millions of Americans are mourning the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade — but also celebrating the incredible progress we have made since then, fighting to restore the God-given rights of every American, of every age.
“Under Roe, over 60 million precious lives have been violently lost to abortion — generations of sons and daughters lost. For far too long, abortion has not only denied the most basic rights for those in the womb, but it’s also left the mothers suffering, often with tremendous guilt and pain.
“Today, millions of Americans are marching in Washington, D.C. and in cities across the nation. Why do we march? We march for the unborn of our generation, and generations to come. We march in prayerful protest of the horrific injustice against the unborn and their mothers. We march in celebration of life.
“To all those women and men marching at home and in our nation’s capital– thank you. Thank you for being true champions of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I’m proud to stand with you, and I’m committed to working side by side with you to restore a culture of life in America, where every human life is respected and protected as a precious gift from God.
“Thank you, and God bless you.”
