Stutzman at Ft. Wayne March for Life: “We Must End the Taxpayer Subsidy to Big Abortion and Overturn Roe v. Wade”Fort Wayne, IN – U.S. Congressman Marlin Stutzman joined Hoosiers today at the 39th annual Fort Wayne March for Life and issued the following statement regarding the anniversary of Roe v. Wade:“The Supreme Court may be the highest court in the land but that doesn’t mean they always get it right. Since 1973, more than 55 million children have been killed in what ought to be nature’s safest environment, enshrining Roe v. Wade alongside Dred Scott as one of the worst decisions in history. It must be overturned.
“I realize that may seem like an impossible task. But despite the fact that a majority of Americans returned the most pro-abortion President in our nation’s history to the Oval Office, they also returned a pro-life majority to the House of Representatives. For this reason we cannot lose hope.
“Earlier this month, when referring to the tragedy at Sandy Hook, President Obama asked if we were ‘doing enough to keep our children—all of them—safe from harm.’ Mr. President, as Planned Parenthood performs more than 900 taxpayer-funded abortions each day, the answer is a resounding ‘no.’ I call on the president to make good on his promise to do everything in his power to keep all of our nation’s children safe and stand for the rights of every single person, born and unborn. We must end the taxpayer subsidy to Big Abortion and overturn Roe v. Wade once and for all.”Background:•Congressman Stutzman is a co-sponsor of H.R. 217, The Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, which would block funding to organizations that perform abortions.•According to its most recent annual report, Planned Parenthood received more than $542 million in revenue from government grants and contracts. During that same time frame, they performed a record high 333,964 abortions.

Thank you Congressman Stutzman! You are an example for many to follow! As we always say, it is easy (although a good thing) for leaders to vote the right way, it is harder to really FIGHT for what is right!
