WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve King released a video statement last week to mark the 41st anniversary of the March for Life rally and called for the reversal of the landmark Roe -v- Wade decision.

“Forty-one years ago today,” King said Wednesday, “the Supreme Court of the United States made, I believe, perhaps the most abysmal decision ever in the history of this country by concluding that there is a right to privacy that included ending the life of an unborn baby.

“Roe v. Wade coupled with Doe v. Bolton [a decision of the United States Supreme Court overturning the abortion law in the state of Georgia] brought out a decision that said abortion was going to be legal under any stage of pregnancy for any reason.

“The most important right we have is the protection of life. Our human lives are so important, so sacred, they cannot be measured against anything else; in fact human life is the measure of which everything else is weighed. We have to protect the right to life for those who cannot protect themselves.

“My prayer is that we come together someday to celebrate the reversal of Roe v. Wade rather than the January 22 annual march that you are participating in today. Keep working, keep marching, keep speaking, keep writing and most importantly, keep praying.”

    There are too many idiots in the Republican Party destroying the conservative message. Obama wants to give everything to the non working and the Republicans to the wealthy. In both cases the middle class pays. It.s going to be open warfare up to the 14 elections. So if the Dems don’t bankrupt us before then it should be interesting. I would expect this to be the most vicious mud slinging battle yet.

      @Joe Dirt-It would be great if someone running as an independent was to run for president and get it. The problem is they would cut the poor guy to ribbons. Remember when old Jesse was Gov. of Minnesota. He was one of their better gov. but they fought him on every single thing he tried to do. He was a little goofy but was for the middle class all the way.

    I wonder what county GOP hack GABE HAUGLAND thinks about this. I hear he is 100% opposed to all abortions. I think he is an “all-or-nothing” Republican. You know, the kind who says “believe as I do or you will go to hell for eternity.” There’s nothing wrong with conservative views, but pol’s like King and Gabe Haugland, to me, seem like dinosaurs who have no political future.

    This is nothing new. It is the Republican view and always has been. It is one of my biggest problems with the Republicans or any party. Trying to tell people what to do with their lives and with their children. It is all religion based and is the one thing that should be stopped. They have not learned a thing. This type of thinking lost them the last election and will lose this one if they do not change. They just can’t get off the gay rights and abortion issues.
