This is a terrific  statement from Speaker Kevin McCarthy, congratulating Republicans in the House for passing two pro-life measures, one a bill and the other a concurrent resolution. Needless to say, pro-abortion Democrats vigorously opposed them both. And the language they used…. It was amazing how totally desensitized they’ve become.

Here is Speaker McCarthy’s statement from yesterday after the House of Representatives adopted Rep. Mike Johnson’s (LA-04) concurrent resolution that would condemn attacks on pro-life organizations and passed Rep. Ann Wagner’s (MO-02) Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

“House Republicans have been committed to advancing legislation that protects the lives of the unborn and their mothers. In the very first week, we kept that commitment because strong families are the essence of American life. And in the face of a growing movement to devalue the miracle of life, we must also protect every American fighting for life – including those at pro-life pregnancy centers and churches from violence and threats. We will continue to prioritize the defense of life and all individuals from violence and intimidation.”
