Henry Hyde's Plea to Override President Clinton's Veto of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban

(Taken from the Congressional Record, September 19, 1996)
Pro-life Rep. Henry Hyde (R-Il.) speaking on the floor of the House of Representatives.

Mr. Speaker, I beg the indulgence of my colleagues not to ask me to yield because I cannot and will not and I would appreciate their courtesy. I also want to say briefly that those who have charged us with politics, invidious politics, for delaying this debate ought to understand that Americans cannot believe this practice exists and it has taken months to educate the American people and it will take many more months to educate them as to the nature and extent of this horrible practice. That is one reason it has taken so long.



We Will Never Forget


Opinion polls show that young people are more pro-life than ever. See stories pages 8 & 34.

Do you have any of those "I'll never forget where I was" memories? January 22, 1973, is one of those times for me.
As I drove to the airport for a meeting at the headquarters of my Lutheran denomination in St. Louis, the car radio was playing in the background. There was no interruption in radio programming for fast-breaking news to catch my attention. There was no somber voice issuing a news alert.
Sandwiched between the all-too-familiar stories of a traffic pile up and a famous actor's divorce, a bland voice announced that there had been a Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion. Her words spun around in my head. Trimesters? Personhood? Privacy? It sounded awful, but what did it all mean?

From the President

Wanda Franz, Ph.D.


On January 22, the infamous Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court will have been in force for thirty years.
This is not just thirty years of legal history--this is thirty years of legalized slaughter of innocent children in the womb.
Thirty years of women not being told the truth about abortion.
Thirty years of women being pressured into an abortion that would "solve the problem" of a crisis pregnancy, when of course it was intended to solve somebody else's problem.
Thirty years of emotional suffering by women who, after the abortion, felt betrayed and abandoned when their partners and relatives and the so-called "counselors" had offered them nothing but abortion as the way out.
Thirty years of women at first denying the horror of their abortion and then rediscovering it--sometimes many years later--in their dreams, seeing their lives fall apart, and then struggling through the guilt for forgiveness and redemption.
Thirty years of disappearing generations. After three decades of so-called "choice," the body count today stands at over 43 million dead unborn children--none of whom had a choice.
