The media was dead silent over The March For Life rally in Washington DC this week.
In fact, most of the stories, Conservative Tribune, seemed to revolve around Ben Shapiro losing a sponsor because of his speech, which clearly ought to be the takeaway from the 46th annual iteration of one of the biggest protest events in the nation, held each year on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.
There were plenty of people besides Shapiro present, including Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw, who has quickly become one of the most visible members of the freshman class of the 116th Congress.
In a video that’s gone viral, Crenshaw expressed his support for the event and for the cause of life.
“I’m pro-life because it’s the default human position,” Crenshaw said.
Crenshaw was once the subject of a sick and cruel joke on Saturday Night Live who bashed the war hero for his eye patch. A war wound Crenshaw received in Afghanistan from an IUD that exploded in his face. He was quickly evacuated and placed in a medically induced coma only to awaken and find his right eye had been destroyed in the blast and his left eye was still present, but badly damaged. Dan was completely blind and the doctors did not believe he would ever see again.
He would prove them all wrong…
In an interview with Breitbart News at the event, Crenshaw said that he was there to show “support for the value of life at all points in the human life cycle.”
“Our cause needs to be messaging … and helping people who are on the other side of this to understand the default position is human life,” Crenshaw told Breitbart.
“The default position is pro-life,” he added. “We shouldn’t be using euphemisms to talk about abortion such as pro-choice or part of the body, or reproduction rights.”
“We should be talking about it in a more honest sense and understanding the human life cycle starts at conception and has value and should be protected as such.”
Crenshaw has openly spoken out against abortion. “As a country, we must place more value on LIFE. I believe that each life is created by God for a special, unique purpose and that every life has inherent value. Being pro-life goes beyond politics. It is a foundational, moral position on the side of humanity. Life starts at conception and I will fight to protect the unborn from conception onward.
We can and must stop late-term abortions in this country. I believe our country is on the very shaky moral ground by allowing the abortion of a human being with ten fingers, ten toes, and heartbeat. This is not an attack on women, it is a question of our humanity. Not even far-left European countries like France allow abortions past 12 weeks, and yet we do?”
Lieutenant Commander Dan Crenshaw (Retired) is the Congressman-elect to replace retiring Congressman Ted Poe as the Representative for Texas’ 2nd Congressional District. In a crowded primary Dan overcame the odds and emerged from a nine-candidate field by 155 votes. He earned the Republican nomination by winning almost 70% of the vote in the run-off. Dan has been featured on Fox News Channel, the Daily Caller, and published in National Review.
