U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement today regarding the 40th Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade and March for Life:

"The 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade is a time to affirm the principle that all human life has inherent dignity and is thus deserving of the protection of the law. Later this week hundreds of thousands of Americans of all ages and backgrounds will gather in Washington to affirm this belief and that, contrary to the Supreme Court's activist ruling in Roe v. Wade, the most vulnerable among us should be welcomed in life and protected by law. The participants in this year's annual March for Life know that any just society is measured by the manner in which it treats the most defenseless of its citizens at every stage of life. I applaud them for their enthusiastic witness to this timeless truth, and I share their commitment to the cause of life."
