Mike Pence Blasts Abortion Truce in March for Life Remarks

January 25, 2011 09:55

“We must not remain silent when great moral battles are being waged. Those who would have us ignore the battle being fought over life have forgotten the lessons of history. As in the days of a house divided, America’s darkest moments have come when economic arguments trumped moral principles.” – Rep. Mike Pence

During his comments before a massive pro-life crowd at the rally prior to the March for Life today, Congressman Mike Pence referred to the truce on abortion and social issues that has plagued both Mitch Daniels and Haley Barbour.

A nation that will not stand for life will not stand for long. You know there can be no lasting prosperity without a moral foundation in law.

And as to focusing on spending, I agree. Let’s start by denying all federal funding for abortion at home and abroad. The largest abortion provider in America should not also be the largest recipient of federal funding under Title X. The time has come to deny any and all federal funding to Planned Parenthood of America.

And we know this: We will win this fight because the deepest desire of every mother and father is to protect their child, at any cost, even with the own lives and that truth cannot be erased.

The American people will make this right. We will restore the sanctity of life to the center of American law.

Pence also hit on the truce during his speech before the Values Voters Summit in Washington. http://www.lifenews.com/2010/09/24/state-5484/
