Burgess in the Denton Record-Chronicle: Honoring the Dignity of Life
Honoring the Dignity of Life
Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D.
January 18, 2019
Today, thousands of people from communities in North Texas and around the country will gather in our nation’s capital to serve as voices for the most vulnerable among us. As America marks another anniversary of Roe v. Wade and its tragic consequences, the March for Life — a peaceful protest 46 years strong — reminds us that life is a precious and sacred gift, and we must do all we can to protect it.The question of abortion, sometimes reduced to yet another political issue, is personal for me. My belief in the right to life has influenced my career for much longer than my time in Congress. In fact, it’s been a lifetime. Before being elected to represent the 26th District of Texas in Congress, I spent nearly three decades practicing as an obstetrician in North Texas. My medical career was rooted in my pro-life practice and the belief that all life has meaningful potential.
As a North Texas doctor, I delivered more than 3,000 babies. Not only did I have the joy of seeing these babies when they were born, but throughout my career I witnessed great advances in the technology that allows doctors and parents to see these children developing in the womb. For those of us who have watched a baby squirm and kick during a sonogram, there is no question about the sanctity of life.
