Brown Statement on the Anniversary of Legalized Abortion

"Roe v. Wade Changed the Heart and Soul of Our Country"

FORT WAYNE, IND. - Indiana Third Congressional District candidate and Indiana State Senator, Liz Brown, released the following statement ahead of Friday, Jan. 22nd's, 43rd anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling, Roe v. Wade, that legalized abortion:

"In 1973, activist judges on the Supreme Court made abortions legal up to the moment of birth and for any reason at all. This ruling changed the heart and soul of our country. Two hundred years prior, our founders proclaimed our right to life in the Declaration of Independence. But that right was erased for the unborn by an activist Supreme Court.

"Instead of simply accepting murder on demand, pro-life advocates, myself included, have been fighting this atrocity. Our tireless efforts over these past 43 years are showing a reduced abortion rate, women reached by pregnancy resource centers, engaged youth and legislative advancements. These victories advance our cause, help women and give more babies birthdays, but much work remains. We are committed to doubling-down on our efforts to protect life and end abortion.

"I am running for Congress because I am ready to take my pro-life passion to Washington. Our pro-life congressman, Marlin Stutzman, must be replaced by an advocate willing to stand and fight for the babies. I will be that advocate. We cannot and will not wait another 43 years and 58 million deaths before we end abortion."
