Pro-Lifers

“I was unexpected and I was given very little chance to survive. And yet here I am.”

Editor’s note. Many pro-life Republican gave floor speeches in response to oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the case heard by the Supreme Court regarding the Mississippi law that protects unborn babies after the 15th week. We will repost two a day.

Rep. Kat Cammack

Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fl.). … For me, this is an incredibly personal issue, like it is for millions of Americans with deeply held beliefs and personal experiences. I, myself, have shared my story on this very floor, that I shouldn’t even be standing here, that my mother was urged to abort me. I was not wanted. I was unexpected and I was given very little chance to survive. And yet, here I am. Again, this speaks to the miracle of life. We have the opportunity, brought on by the Dobbs v. Jackson case presented before the Supreme Court to chart a new course for our Nation so that every unborn child has the right to life and the opportunity that it holds while living in America. Roe v. Wade has cost the lives of millions of American children, but what we have is the remarkable opportunity to make it right today. 

Today is the turning point. Madam Speaker, I am proud to join dozens of my Republican colleagues to voice our support and stand for those most vulnerable, the unborn.
