Speaker of the House John Boehner: Pro-life Stalwart


It may not be common knowledge, but the next Speaker of the House, John Boehner, has been an ardent foe of abortion since entering Congress in 1991, and a leader in the fight.  As indicated in the video above, while accepting the Henry Hyde award from Americans United for Life earlier this year, for Boehner this is an emotional issue, and he is heart and soul on our side.  A refreshing change from Nancy Pelosi.

 “America is a nation that is built on freedom, but without respect for life that freedom is in jeopardy Wen we reaffirm our commitment to life we reaffirm our commitment to freedom. We should always err on the side of life and respect the dignity of human life. We have a moral obligation to defend the defenseless and there is nothing more defenseless and more innocent than an unborn baby. The defense of life and the defense of freedom are necessarily linked and, if we accept that, we can’t accept the current agenda in Washington.”

“I never sought to be recognized as a leader of a movement or wear my pro-life credentials on my sleeve. I just voted for what I thought was right and spoke out on what I thought was right. But, if you believe in the right to life, being quiet isn’t good enough,” he concluded. “Any politician can say he or she is pro-life but actions speak louder than words.”

    I too like Mr. Boehner. The pro-life message pushes on. It is unbelievable how many American lives we have lost through our current abortion laws.

    I recently had the pleasure of meeting him and shaking his hand and I looked him right in the eyes. He seems to be the real deal, Catholic, conservative, patriotic, pro-life. Pray for him. He is about to be attacked on multiple planes.
