Washington, DC –U.S. Representative Mike Bost (IL-12), a member of the House Pro-Life Caucus, today participated in the 2017 March for Life. The mission of the March for Life is to provide all Americans with a place to testify to the beauty of life and the dignity of each human person on the anniversary of legalized abortion in the United States.

“As a father and grandfather, I was proud to walk in today’s March for Life to celebrate the preciousness of human life,” said Rep. Bost. “The love that a family feels for their children doesn’t begin on the day the child is born. It starts when they learn that their prayers have been answered and that a new life is being brought into this world. It is my sincere belief that America is only as strong as our willingness to protect the weakest and most vulnerable among us, which is why I have fought in Congress to eliminate taxpayer funding for abortion and fought to preserve pro-life health care providers' rights of conscience.  As today’s incredible turnout indicated, today the pro-life movement is as strong as ever and making significant progress.”
