President Bush told the participants of the March for Life Rally: "Our history shows that a cause rooted in human dignity and appealing to the best instincts of the American people cannot fail" The President said also: "We're heartened by the news that the number of abortions is declining."

President Bush: "Thirty-five years ago today the United States Supreme Court declared and decided that under the law an unborn child is not considered a person."  "We're heartened by the news that the number of abortions is declining.  But the most recent data reports that more than one in five pregnancies end in an abortion. America is better than this, so we will continue to work for a culture of life where a woman with an unplanned pregnancy knows there are caring people who will support her; where a pregnant teen can carry her child and complete her education; where the dignity of both the mother and child is honored and cherished." (President George W. Bush, Remarks to the March Of Life Rally Participants, The White House, 1/22/08)

 

·         "We aspire to build a society where each one of us is welcomed in life and protected in law.  We haven't arrived, but we are making progress."  "Here in Washington we passed good laws that promote adoption and extend legal protection to children who are born despite abortion attempts.  We came together to ban the cruel practice of partial birth abortion. And in the past year we have prevented that landmark law from being rolled back."

 

·         "We've seen the dramatic breakthroughs in stem cell research that it is possible to advance medical science while respecting the sanctity of life."  "Biology confirms that from the start each unborn child is a separate individual with his or her own genetic code.  Babies can now survive outside the mother's womb at younger and younger ages.  And the fingers and toes and beating hearts that we can see on an unborn child's ultrasound come with something that we cannot see: a soul."

 

·         "As we reach out to others and find common ground, we can see the glimmerings of a new America on a far shore."  "This America is rooted in our belief that in a civilized society, the strong protect the weak.  This America is nurtured by people like you, who speak up for the weak and the innocent.  This America is the destiny of a people whose founding document speaks of the right to life that is a gift of our Creator, not a grant of the state." # # #
