No one would have predicted that 40 yrs after Roe v. Wade, that teenagers and 20 year olds would be more pro-life than the generation that gave us Roe v. Wade. That tells you that truth is a very stubborn thing. Truth doesn’t go away just because people deny it…. And people, while they don’t want to accept it because it doesn’t fit with how they want to live their lives and the “freedom” that they have, they keep running into it, and when they hear it, they’re troubled by it….
I was doing an interview at a… TV station and they wanted to talk to me about a life issue….
The interviewer says, “the former Senator believes that life begins at conception.”
I interrupted him and I said, “No, I don’t.”…
He said, “You don’t believe that life begins at conception?… Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you did.”
I said, “No, I don’t believe life begins at conception – I know life begins at conception.”…
When you put that issue in the element of belief, in the element of faith, in the element of religion, you diminish the truth. Because the biological truth is, in every science text book in America, it [life beginning at conception] is a fact….
So while the other side would like to say this movement is about morality and beliefs and trying to force your views, they ignore the reality of the science behind this movement….
The bottom line is, truth is on our side. Science is on our side. Young people are on our side. This movement’s winning….
We’re about to make some big changes in this country. They’re coming.
