"In this debate we have an even greater choice to make. We are not just making a decision for our own families, but for millions of American families. The pro-life majority of this country has made it clear that we will not allow our values to be hijacked by this debate. On the issue of life, we are about to cast career-defining votes. Rarely in public service is the choice so clear or the stakes higher. Now is such a time for choosing. I urge you to choose life and support this motion."
