Forty-one years ago, that couple could have made the choice to abort, but they didn’t. They chose life (referring to herself).
I’m certain that this couple would never have thought that that child would become the first female, black, Republican member elected to Congress.
Each living child carries with him or her the potential for greatness. A child born today may become a doctor that cures cancer or Alzheimer’s.
That child may be the astronaut that takes the world to Mars for a CEO that leads a global business.
That child may become a friend that saves a peer from suicide or a mom who strengthens her family, volunteers and eradicate hunger, or a teacher who inspires a struggling student.
Every time we kill a child through abortion, we kill our potential.
Every time we kill a child, we, all of us suffer. We lose a little of ourselves and a whole lot of our future.
We cannot accept what might have been if we allow an organization to convince women they have no choice but to abort the life and the potential within them.
May we never ever allow our funds to pay for the death of young children.
May God bless you for being here today, and may God bless our pro-life United States of America.
