McConnell Applauds Virtual March for Life, Condemns Funding Foreign Abortions with Taxpayer Money

‘Every year, the March is one of the most important things that happens in Washington. Americans of all ages, diverse backgrounds, and many faiths speak up peacefully and powerfully for the most fundamental human right. They make our nation confront the fact that even the most modest protections for innocent life are still not secure.’

WASHINGTON, D.C. –U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) delivered the following remarks today on the Senate floor regarding March for Life:

“Normally, today and tomorrow, we’d be welcoming many thousands of Americans to the capital for the annual March for Life.

“Every year, the March is one of the most important things that happens in Washington. Americans of all ages, diverse backgrounds, and many faiths speak up peacefully and powerfully for the most fundamental human right.

“They make our nation confront the fact that even the most modest protections for innocent life are still not secure.

“The pandemic has taken this year’s march online. That’s a particular pity given signs that the new Administration may be poised to steamroll even the most limited safeguards for conscience, let alone life itself.

“This new Washington needs to hear the marchers more than ever.

“Case in point: Word is, our new Administration is planning to rescind the Mexico City Policy this very day — run over the consciences of American taxpayers and put them back on the hook for funding abortions overseas.

“An Administration that wanted to pursue unity might observe that 77% of Americans — including a majority of Democrats and 85% of independents — don’t want taxpayer dollars to fund foreign abortions.

“This and many other common-sense pro-life policies enjoy broad support from the American people. But the radicalism of the modern Democratic party seems dug in.

“Fortunately, political dynamics change, but the moral truth doesn’t. Executive orders can’t alter the basic science of human life.

“So I thank my fellow Kentuckians and all Americans who are participating. We’ll see you in person next year.”
