Mr. JORDAN. I thank the gentleman from Texas, the distinguished chair of the Judiciary Committee.

Look, life is precious, life is sacred, and government should protect that basic fact. It is not some grant from government. It is a gift from God. Our founders understood that when they talked about the creator giving us this inalienable right, and the fact that we live in the greatest Nation in history and our tax dollars are used to destroy the life of unborn children is just plain wrong.

This bill corrects that. This bill is what the American people want, and this bill is consistent with this great Nation, founded on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That is why it should pass and that is why I am a proud sponsor and urge a ``yes'' vote on the legislation.
