The Speaker’s office announces:
Next Monday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will deliver opening remarks at the 39th annual March for Life, a non-partisan event held to coincide with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade. House leaders and members of the bipartisan pro-life majority in the House are also expected to speak.
“Respect for life has never been a political position for me: it’s who I am, and it’s who we are as a people,” Speaker Boehner said. “The cause of life endures in large part due to the vigilance of the American people, especially those who, led by Nellie Gray, march and pray in our nation’s capital each year at this time. It will be a great honor to address the March for Life as Speaker of the House and leader of its bipartisan pro-life majority.”
