Thursday, January 22, 2009
WASHINGTON – On the 36th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., reaffirmed his belief that no one should be denied the right to life. Wicker also thanked the participants in today’s March for Life rally in Washington, D.C.
“Thirty-six years after Row v. Wade, the pro-life movement continues fighting for the unborn today in the nation’s capital. I appreciate the dedication of the thousands of people from across the country that have come to Washington today to participate in the annual March for Life, and I join them in calling on the Supreme Court to overturn the Roe V. Wade decision.
“Our nation was founded on the belief that every person is entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Those rights should not be withheld from the unborn. I pledge to continue working in the Senate to advance pro-life legislation that will protect the lives of the unborn.”
During his tenure in Congress, Sen. Wicker has offered multiple pro-life bills, including the Life at Conception Act that declared that life begins at conception. Sen. Wicker has a 100 percent pro-life voting record from the National Right to Life group.
