Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) celebrated the 2022 March for Life this week in a speech on the Senate floor and a message to the tens of thousands of marchers in Washington, D.C., Utah, and across the country.

Of the pro-life movement, Sen. Lee said, “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; inalienable rights, endowed by our Creator. This is the promise of America, yet for millions of unborn babies, because of a twisted precedent and a misreading of the Constitution, that promise is denied. Equality begins in the womb. God told Jerimiah, “before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee.” Each precious human life is known and loved by God.
“Tragically, under Roe and its devastating aftermath, the promise of life is denied to far too many babies of both genders, every race, and varying physical ability. Each life has unlimited potential and value. I pray that this is the last March for Life under Roe. I pray that we might see each precious baby as a gift from God to be loved and nurtured. I pray that each life will be valued for what it is, equal, because equality begins in the womb.”
Sen. Lee also asked the Senate to pass his Protecting Life in Foreign Assistance Act, a bill that would prohibit U.S. foreign aid dollars being used to promote or conduct abortions abroad, on Thursday, January 20.
