President Bush’s Statement on the Unborn Victims of Violence Act

Feb 26, 2004 | Unborn Victims of Violence

THE WHITE HOUSE

Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release
February 26, 2004

STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

I applaud the House for passing the Unborn Victims of Violence Act today by a strong bipartisan vote.

We must continue to build a culture of life in our country, a compassionate society in which every child is born into a loving family and protected by law. Pregnant women who have been harmed by violence, and their families, know that there are two victims — the mother and the unborn child — and both victims should be protected by federal law.

I urge the Senate to pass this bill so that I can sign it into law.
