Speaker of the House and former Republican vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan gave his remarks while surrounded by fellow pro-life members of Congress.
Ryan called the pro-life cause "a movement that is on the rise," and told those gathered that "truth is on our side," "science is on our side," and "love is on our side."
"Just look at the ultrasounds that have shown us more about the preborn child than ever before; how they develop, how they react, how they feel pain," said Ryan.
Ryan touted the pro-life legislation advanced in the House, stating that he and colleagues "strive to make our time in Congress a 'March for Life' itself."
"We strive to fight for the unborn, to pass important pro-life legislation through Congress, to work with the Trump administration to pass pro-life policies and laws. And you know what? We're making a lot of progress," said Ryan.
"In the House, we passed legislation to defund Planned Parenthood. In the House, we passed the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act which restricts abortion after 20 weeks. We passed the Conscience Protection Act, which insures no one is force to produce an abortion against his or her will."
