Abortion is the Human Rights Abuse of Today and Should Absolutely be a Bi-Partisan Issue
Washington, D.C. – In response to last night’s first Democratic debate, March for Life Education and Defense Fund President Jeanne Mancini offered the following comment:
“Abortion is the human rights abuse of today and should absolutely be a bi-partisan issue. It is truly sad that the life issues weren’t addressed head-on within the presidential debate last night, especially given that they featured prominently in the other two debates in recent weeks.”
In response to Hillary Clinton’s accusation that pro-life leaders use “big government” to implement pro-life policies, Tom McClusky, March for Life Action Vice-President for Government Affairs, further added:
“Mrs. Clinton seems to feel abortion giant Planned Parenthood is a victim of Big Government. Correction, Mrs. Clinton: with over half a billion in taxpayer funds filling their coffers Planned Parenthood IS Big Government.”
The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.
