Broun: "We must work to change America's thinking, and fight to change America's laws."

Congressman Paul Broun today joined President George W. Bush and other members of Congress at the National Mall to address thousands of pro-life Americans assembled for the 35th Annual March for Life. January 22nd marks the 35th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in 1973. Ever since that United States Supreme Court decision, supporters of a right to life have chosen to gather on the anniversary date at the nation's capitol petitioning Congress for redress. Congressman Broun's remarks encouraged those in attendance to continue their work on behalf of the unborn.

"As a medical doctor, I understand that life begins at fertilization," said Broun. "God cannot and will not continue to bless a nation that murders over 3,000 innocent babies every day and I will do everything in my power to end this massacre of innocent life. We must work to change America's thinking, and fight to change America's laws."

Congressman Broun will also be one of three guest speakers at the March for Life Fund's Rose Dinner program later this evening. Broun will talk about "The Sanctity of Human Life Act" (HR-4157), a bill he introduced on November 13, 2007. Broun's legislation declares that human life begins at fertilization and is vested at that time with a constitutionally protected right to life.
