Today, Congressman J. Gresham Barrett (SC-03) released the following statement in regards to the March for Life Rally in Washington, DC:
"As a firm believer in the sanctity of life, defending the rights of the unborn is extremely important to me. Therefore, I am pleased to see so many Americans taking a stand against abortion by participating in today's March for Life in Washington, DC.
I truly believe that this rally could not come at a more crucial time in the pro life movement or in the health care debate. With the Democratic majority threatening to use taxpayer dollars to fund abortions, it is important that Americans take a stand against this provision.
The federal funding of abortions is an important issue that needs to be addressed and I will continue to work with my prolife colleagues to protect the rights of all unborn children."
