The following is a short speech Congresswoman Mary Miller of Illinois recently gave on the House floor:
Madam Speaker, I have observed multiple times when we open our daily session in prayer that we are praying to Creator God, acknowledging that God is our creator. He is also the giver of life. I am proud of my five daughters who cherish this blessing from our Creator and have blessed us with 17 grandchildren. The abortion industry talks about pregnancy as if it is a cancer diagnosis. How sad and tragic that Planned Parenthood and the chemical abortion industry have targeted and deceived young women for their own profit.
Today, we have been praying for wisdom and for God’s guiding hand over the Supreme Court as it hears the Dobbs v. Jackson case. This case could mark the biggest win for human life in America in decades. In Illinois’ 15th Congressional District, we honor and respect the dignity of all stages of life, born and unborn. Pro-life Americans believe all life has value, no matter how small.
I also have a little grandson who has Down syndrome. He is just precious. His name is Nathaniel, and that means a gift from God. With the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, the Court can correct the dreadful ruling of Roe v. Wade and acknowledge that the decision wasn’t constitutional or based in reality.
