Long Statement on Life 40 Years After Roe v. Wade Ruling


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Billy Long issued the following statement marking 40 years after the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on abortion:

"I was a senior in high school when the Supreme Court made their decision to legalize abortion 40 years ago today. I remember vividly how I absolutely could not understand their thinking that legalized stopping a beating heart on demand. I thought it was outrageous then and the intervening 40 years have done nothing to change my opinion. I believe in the sanctity of human life, that life begins at conception, and in protecting the rights of the unborn."
