“Instead of prioritizing the abortion industry, we as a Nation should be focused on prioritizing the sanctity of human life”

by | Dec 6, 2021

Editor’s note. Many pro-life Republican gave floor speeches in response to oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the case heard by the Supreme Court regarding the Mississippi law that protects unborn babies after the 15th week. We will repost two a day.

Rep. John Rose (R-TN]: Madam Speaker, today, the United States Supreme Court will hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a major pro-life case that focuses on protecting the unborn, not restricting the rights of women. Instead of prioritizing the abortion industry, we as a Nation should be focused on prioritizing the sanctity of human life. As the father to two sons, Guy and Sam, and having lost a son, Mack Wayne, at 19 weeks in the womb, I strongly believe life begins at conception and that an unborn child is a human life. Thanks to modern medical advancement, we know that: at 5 weeks, unborn babies have a heartbeat; at 10 weeks, unborn babies have developed arms and legs and fingers and toes; at 12 weeks, unborn babies feel pain; at 15 weeks, unborn babies have a fully developed heart. 

This landmark case gives the Supreme Court a chance to correct the mistake it made nearly 50 years ago and the opportunity to acknowledge that our Constitution does protect an unborn child’s right to life.
