This is a great speech from Indiana Congressman Mike Pence at the March for Life. I love how he takes on those who would have us ignore social issues and focus solely on fiscal ones (Yeah, Governor Mitch Daniels I’m looking at you.)

Pence said:

“These are trying times in the life of this nation.

“Our economy is struggling and our national government is awash in a sea of debt.

“Amidst these struggles, some would have us focus our energies on jobs and spending.

“We must not remain silent when great moral battles are being waged. Those who would have us ignore the battle being fought over life have forgotten the lessons of history. As in the days of a house divided, America’s darkest moments have come when economic arguments trumped moral principles.

“A nation that will not stand for life will not stand for long.
