Opening the House Judiciary Committee hearing today on the heartbeat-based abortion ban, pro-life Congressman Steve King of Iowa delivered a heartfelt and impassioned speech on behalf of unborn children.

“It pains my soul to think of the countless babies killed since abortion on demand became commonplace on the unconstitutional decision of Roe v. Wade,” he said to start off the hearing, voice somber.

“It is important that Congress passes such a strong pro-life bill now,” he said, “because President Trump will hopefully appoint one or two more justices to the Supreme Court, making this a profound moment in the pro-life movement. President Trump is actively changing the makeup of our judicial system with strong, conservative nominees who would hear arguments about this bill while it is being challenged on the way to the Supreme Court.”

King added that “the constitutionality of this bill is evident” under the 14th Amendment because the Equal Protection Clause protects the “life and liberty of Americans living in their mothers wombs.”
