Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement today on the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade:
"The gift of life is a precious, sacred blessing. It is heartbreaking that approximately 1.2 million innocent lives have been lost per year for the past 40 years since Roe v. Wade. It is my prayer and commitment to continue pushing for laws and legislation that promise to save the precious lives of the very most vulnerable, who are entrusted to our care. Today on the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, let us choose to honor life and remember the unborn whose lives are snuffed out before ever having the chance to see the beauty in this world."
Congressman Louie Gohmert is the Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, Louie was elected to three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas and also served as Chief Justice of Texas'12th Court of Appeals.
