Representative Diane Black spoke at the Susan B. Anthony List luncheon Tuesday where she discussed the pro-life victories in Congress since the historic 2016 elections that swept Donald Trump and Mike Pence into office, including Black’s own bill to allow states to determine where they spend their Title X dollars and the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which bans late-term abortions after 20 weeks.
Black said, “Here in our state of Tennessee – before I left Tennessee to go to Congress – we passed a bill here in our state that was signed into law that said our dollars, our Title X dollars, are used for it’s true purpose and that is family planning.
“Abortion is not family planning – by definition. It’s family destruction, by definition,” she said, to loud applause and cheers by the luncheon crowd.
After her remarks, her long-time friend Vice President Mike Pence took the podium took a moment to thank Representative Black for her leadership on fighting for the unborn:
I understand that you’ve heard from one of the great, great champions of life in the Congress of the United States. Congresswoman Diane Black, my great friend, is with us today. I appreciate her very much.
