Boehner: We Are Working to “Restore the Damage of Roe V. Wade”


Speaker of the House John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor may not be finding much to agree on when it comes to dealing with the debt ceiling, the budget crisis, and the payroll tax negotiations.  But one place they remain completely in sync?  Cutting off women’s access to reproductive choice.

Both Republicans discussed their renewed commitment to the cause at this year’s “March for Life.”

Via the L.A. Times:

“We are heeding the voice of the people, who overwhelmingly oppose taxpayer funding of abortion,” House Speaker John A. Boehner said in opening remarks at the 39th annual March for Life in Washington. “With your help, this bipartisan majority is standing up for life and working to restore the damage of Roe v. Wade.”

“We come today to stand together and voice our belief that innocent life is precious, and the taking of life morally wrong,” said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) “Our dollars should never be used to take life. It is time to protect conscience rights for those who oppose abortion.”

Apparently the 2012 federal agenda is going to look just like 2011.
