Attor­ney Gen­er­al Pax­ton State­ment on Roe v. Wade Anniversary

"Forty-three years after Roe v. Wade, let us remember those who are missing from our society and were never given the chance to live; the children we will never know, the faces we will never see and the people we will never meet. These innocent children will never celebrate a birthday, graduate from high school or college, or have the opportunity to start families of their own. It’s impossible to fill the void of more than 50 million missing human beings, or to understand the full impact this lost potential has had on our nation. We as a society have a duty to respect the dignity and value of every single human life, and today I pray for an end to the devastation that abortion has brought on our communities.”
