US Congresswoman Virginia Foxx’s Greeting to NC Rally & March for Life Attendees


U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx

North Carolina Rally and March for Life

January 21, 2017

"Today you gather in Raleigh to acknowledge the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the millions of babies who have been robbed of the most fundamental of all rights. Through your presence at the North Carolina Rally and March for Life, you are cherishing and celebrating the sacred and God-given right to life.

Few things demean the sanctity of human life more than elective abortion. One day, I hope it will be different. I hope life will cease to be valued on a sliding scale. I hope the era of elective abortions, ushered in by an unelected court, will be closed and collectively deemed one of the darkest chapters in American history. Until that day comes, it remains my solemn duty to speak for those who cannot. Regardless of the length of this journey, I will continue to promote policies in Washington that allow families to flourish and that protect life at all stages.

Our freedom rests on the cornerstone right we all have to life. Thank you for your

participation today and thank you for standing up for life."
