Santorum Joins Hundreds of Thousands at March for Life

Washington, DC - Former Republican Presidential Candidate and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum issued the following statement after speaking at the 40th Annual March for Life Rally and March:  

"It is an honor for Karen, our children, and me to be a part of this year's March for Life.  This is a positive movement, about the dignity of all human life -the unborn, the elderly, the sick, the disabled.  Ultimately, we are a pro-life country that that respects everybody not for what they can do, but for who they are.

 

"The right to life is the first right.  Without its protection, no other rights matter.  The March for Life on Washington reaffirms our fight to stand tall for those who have no voice, and to fight for the sanctity of all life. 

 

"President Barack Obama does not share this principle.  He is the most extreme president in history when it comes to his views on the dignity of human life for the unborn. Not only has the President broken new ground as the leader of our country by enthusiastically seeking to eliminate any and all restrictions on abortion, he has pioneered new levels of animosity towards those who believe that all life has value. 

 

"And yet today I know that despite his opposition to these issues, we will win on this front.  Watching the hundreds of thousands of Americans marching for life is an inspiration to me and my family.  On the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we together know this: an unborn child is not just a clump of cells.  He or she is a human life, as worthy of basic dignity and respect as any one of us.  Each precious, irreplaceable human life is too infinitely valuable to permit courts to redefine its meaning away.  And we share these principles as they relate to those with special needs.  There are many issues confronting America, but this continues to be among the most important.  We must continue our fight to preserve the dignity of every human life," Santorum concluded.
