BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. BUERKLE. I thank the gentleman from Arizona for his excellent work on this important bill.

I rise this afternoon in support of H.R. 3541 as a woman, as a mother of four daughters, and as a grandmother of three granddaughters.

Mr. Speaker, there can be no rights for women if we don't allow them the right to life. What we are hearing from the other side this afternoon is about money and about political campaigns and about the rhetoric of the war on women. This is the ultimate war on women, Mr. Speaker. If we don't allow women to be born, we cannot talk about any other rights.

So I stand here today, and I urge all of my female colleagues in this House of Representatives to stand together and support H.R. 3541.
