BUNRSVILLE – John Kline spoke to hundreds gathered at the Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life rally Sunday afternoon in St. Paul.
Sunday marked the somber anniversary of the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision.
“I was honored to join thousands of Minnesotans at the Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life rally to recognize this solemn moment in our history and reiterate our commitment to protecting the unborn,” Kline said. “In Washington, I am proud to champion legislation and initiatives to make respect for life the law of the land.”
Two critical bills have already been approved by the House and are now awaiting consideration by our Senate counterparts:
- The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act would establish a government-wide statutory prohibition on abortion funding; and
- The Protect Life Act would prohibit insurers from selling health plans that cover abortion to anyone receiving federal funds.
In the 39 years since the devastating decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to permit the destruction of life, stalwart defenders of the unborn have been hard at work. And while the ultimate prize of banning abortion once and for all remains elusive, progress is being made.
“Thanks to the support and hard work of men and women like you here in Minnesota – and across the nation – leaders from the state house to the U.S. House of Representatives continue to be elected,” Kline told Minnesotans Sunday. “And these Representatives are working hard to advance policies that protect those who cannot protect themselves.”
