On the 48th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court Decision, Representative Lamborn prepared the following remarks: 

Madam Speaker, 

Today, I rise to commemorate the 48th anniversary of the tragic Roe versus Wade Supreme Court Decision. That fateful decision has ended over 62 million unborn babies’ lives. 

Consider that while America is the land of opportunity, more than 62 million unborn Americans were given no opportunity to pursue the incredible opportunities our great nation affords. 

At home and abroad, the unborn are under attack. Our colleagues on the other side of the aisle disastrously intend to burden the consciences of millions of Americans by forcing them to use their hard-earned tax dollars to subsidize abortion. 

I’m also deeply concerned by the current administration’s decision to rescind the Mexico City Policy and instead force taxpayers to fund abortions overseas. 

In fact, recent polling shows that three-quarters of Americans want significant restrictions on abortion. 

If we are truly representing the American people, we will work as a Congress to pass abortion restrictions here in these halls. 

Until that happens, I will continue fighting tirelessly to defend the sanctity of unborn lives.
