Aderholt: ‘I look forward to the day when there are no more abortions’
Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) recently spoke on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives about his staunch pro-life views.
Wednesday marks the 47th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling.
Aderholt’s remarks can be seen in a video posted to his Twitter account.
“I stand here today as pro-life, pro-family and pro-child,” he began.
“No matter what your faith is, everyone understands that life is very precious and that life is a gift,” Aderholt continued. “I believe that as members of Congress and really as all citizens, we’re called to protect the vulnerable — and this is one of my core beliefs.”
“Being pro-life means not just pro-birth but being interested in the welfare of the child during his or her entire formative years,” the dean of Alabama’s House delegation advised. “That’s why I’m not only a longtime member of the pro-life caucus but also the co-chair of the congressional coalition on adoption.”
He showed appreciation for the Trump administration’s work on pro-life issues.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank this administration for the work they have done to defend the unborn, including changing the rules for Title X and expanding the Mexico City Policy. I look forward to continuing to work with the administration on these issues as we come to the time of January , where we remember the ruling of Roe versus Wade,” Aderholt remarked.
“I look forward to the day when there are no more abortions because there’s no more unwanted children,” he concluded.
Today, I spoke on the House floor on behalf of the millions of babies aborted since Roe v. Wade. I am unapologetically pro-life, pro-child and pro-family. I pray that we soon see the day that Roe v. Wade is overturned and the sanctity of life is returned to our nation. pic.twitter.com/i26eBRgC4r
