*The White House Press Office promised to send me a statement, but didn’t. Instead, it quietly released the following message on Saturday, January 22, even using the term in my request, calling this the “38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.”
Note the glaring contradictions: How can Americans advance human rights and freedoms for their daughters if our government pushes the violent agenda of aborting them?

For Immediate Release

Statement by the President on Roe v. Wade Anniversary“Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters. I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption. And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.”
