Pro-Life Senators Take a Stand
As America remembers the 45 million preborn babies who have died since Roe v. Wade, several U.S. senators are taking a stand for life.
Sen. David Vitter, R-La., spoke at the annual March for Life. "We're going to win this fight," he said, "because of your faith and your commitment to your work."
Senator Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., also addressed the pro-life crowd Thursday.
"As a new Congress begins and a new president enters the Oval Office," he said, "this is the time to re-evaluate our nationís priorities and affirm, as our Founding Fathers did before us, that the right to life is undeniable, indisputable and unequivocal."
Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., encouraged his colleagues on the Senate floor.
"While pro-lifers will undoubtedly face big challenges in the years to come," he said, "I am certain that we will continue to passionately fight until we reach our goal: the protection of innocent human life in America."
Republican Sens. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Jim DeMint of South Carolina and Chuck Grassley of Iowa also made statements in support of life.
