Statement on Unborn Victims of Violence Act
Statement by the President

I applaud the House for passing the Unborn Victims of Violence Act today by a strong bipartisan vote. We must continue to build a culture of life in our country, a compassionate society in which every child is born into a loving family and protected by law.

Pregnant women who have been harmed by violence, and their families, know that there are two victims -- the mother and the unborn child -- and both victims should be protected by federal law.

I urge the Senate to pass this bill so that I can sign it into law.
