WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) today released the following in recognition of the 42nd Annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., the largest pro-life event in the world.
“Today marks the 42nd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision of Roe v. Wade – a decision that has altered humanity by legalizing abortion in our nation,” said Latta. “Since that day, there have been more than 55 million abortions in the United States. This loss of life is extremely disheartening, but I am thankful to see so many Americans, especially those from Northwest and West Central Ohio, in our nation’s capital rallying in support of our shared pro-life values. The March for Life represents an opportunity to strengthen our voices and renew our efforts in support of life across the country.”
Congressman Latta also joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in voting to support H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act. H.R. 7 codifies policies enacted for more than thirty years on a case-by-case basis that prohibit federal funding of abortion.
