Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) along with other Congressional colleagues spoke today at the 38th annual Walk for Life on the National Mall. He delivered the following remarks:
"Allow me to borrow from Abraham Lincoln. Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray that this mighty scourge of abortion may speedily pass away; yet, if God wills it, America suffers until all the wealth piled by the abortionists--38 years of killing innocent babies--shall be lost.
As was said 3,000 years ago, so it still must be said the "judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether with malice towards none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right."
Let us strive on to finish the work we're in, to bind up the nation's wounds from abortions, to care for those who have undergone an abortion and from all those suffering from those losses, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting end to the abortion deaths among ourselves and our communities. May God heal our land and bless America."
On January 22, 1974, the first March for Life was held on the West Steps of the Capitol. An estimated 20,000 committed pro-life Americans rallied that day on behalf of our preborn brothers and sisters.
