Walorski: Our Enduring Commitment to Life Will Prevail

As America Marks 49 Years Under Roe v. Wade, Rep. Walorski Stands Strong to Defend Life & Americans’ Conscience Rights

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today released the following statement marking 49 years since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade.

“For nearly 50 years, our nation has been plagued by the radical ramifications of Roe v. Wade. As a pro-life lawmaker, I will always stand strong against the left’s continual attacks on the inherent dignity of human life. As many times as it takes, I will speak up to protect the most vulnerable among us and reject Democrats’ extreme ploys to force taxpayers to bankroll abortion against their conscience.

“As the Supreme Court considers the most significant challenge to Roe v. Wade since 1973, I am hopeful that today is the final anniversary that Americans mark under this deadly decision. Our progress is built upon the shoulders of tireless pro-life Americans who have marched and advocated for almost half a century. Despite the challenges we have faced, our enduring commitment to life – and the truth – will prevail.”

Earlier this week, Congresswoman Walorski discussed her commitment to life ahead of this solemn anniversary. Watch her full remarks here.

Read excerpts of her remarks below:

This week, our nation is marking a solemn anniversary – 49 years since the deadly Roe v. Wade decision. For nearly half a century, pro-life Americans have been standing strong to defend precious human life and the most vulnerable among us.

***

Under the current one-party rule in Washington, Americans are witnessing unprecedented attacks on pro-life protections across the country.

As many times as it takes, I will reject attacks on life and I will vote no on taxpayer-funded abortion services – including the wicked proposal to permit abortion on demand at any time, bankrolled by the American people.

***

The Supreme Court – including my fellow Hoosier Justice Amy Coney Barrett – is currently considering the most significant challenge to Roe v. Wade since 1973. This could be the FINAL anniversary that we mark under Roe v. Wade.

***

For five decades, we have been in a long battle against abortion – and this is the time to restore the dignity of life and protect life once and for all.

As a pro-life lawmaker, I am proud to stand alongside millions of Americans in Indiana and across the country who believe in the inherent value of life.

Our enduring commitment to life – and the truth – will prevail.
