U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, today issued the following statement regarding the 2013 March for Life rally:
"I want to welcome and thank all Texans who have made the trip to Washington to make their voices heard. We've taken important steps in recent years to defend life, including passage of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act and the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. I believe that all life should be treated with dignity and respect, and I am committed to doing all I can to protect innocent life. I am proud so many Texans join me in sharing this core belief."
Sen. Cornyn has a strong record defending human life, including co-sponsoring the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, which the Senate passed in 2003 and was signed into law. Sen. Cornyn continues to fight against the use of any federal dollars to subsidize abortions.
