Democrats came to the House floor yesterday one after another refusing to support a ban on late-term abortions the House eventually passed on a mostly part-line vote.
Rep. Virginia Foxx, a North Carolina Republican, told her colleagues: “May we, in love, defend the unborn. May we, in humility, confront this national sin, and may we mourn what abortion reveals about the conscience of our nation.”
“Madam Speaker, we go to extraordinary lengths to save, not only human beings but even animals, because we value life so much. However, there are many who do not hold the unborn in the same esteem, and that is tragic,” she added. “There’s nothing more important than protecting voiceless, unborn children and their families from the travesty of abortion.”
