Representative Diane Black (R-TN-06) was among many lawmakers to join Friday’s 45th annual March for Life rally at the nation’s capital.
Fox News’ Harris Faulkner caught up with the Congressman and Tennessee gubernatorial candidate to discuss this year’s event.
“I know you authored and passed through the house the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015. Congresswoman, you have said you are so dedicated to the message that’s out there. What is that message?” Faulkner asked.
“That message is that a baby is a life. It’s no longer, as we thought some 45 years ago before we had the science, that this is a blob of tissue.” Rep Black said, surrounded by March for Life activists – many of whom were noticeably young.
“This is a life. And I have fought for 45 years. And you know, the energy on this mall today, the energy by young people who know that, who acknowledge that this is a life was here and present today. And it just makes my heart leap,” Black added.
Faulkner then asked about the crowd reaction to President Trump’s remarks, which were broadcast to the Marchers via big-screens. “What did [President Trump] say that resonated with that crowd?”
“That it was an acknowledgement. That this is a life, and that we honer every life, born and unborn. And that we now have a generation that realizes this and – again – I think this is so exciting to know as we move forward in policy, in honor, that we’re going to see a whole new generation that wants this to be changed, and to able to say: This is a life.”
