GOOD EVENING, I AM SISTER DEDE BYRNE. I BELONG TO THE COMMUNITY OF THE LITTLE WORKERS OF SACRED HEART JESUS AND MARY. LAST FOURTH OF JULY, I WAS HONORED TO BE ONE OF THE PRESIDENT'S GUESTS IN HIS SALUTE TO AMERICA'S CELEBRATION. I MUST CONFESS THAT I RECENTLY PRAYED WHILE IN CHAPEL AND BEGGED GOD TO ALLOW ME TO BE IN INSTRUMENT FOR HUMAN LIFE.

HERE I AM, SPEAKING AT THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION. I GUESS YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU PRAY FOR.

MY JOURNEY THROUGH THIS LIFE WAS NOT A TRADITIONAL ROUTE. IN 1978 AS A MEDICAL SCHOOL STUDENT AT GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY, I JOINED THE ARMY TO HELP PAY FOR MY TUITION AND THEN ENDED UP DEVOTED 29 YEARS TO THE MILITARY, SERVING AS A DOCTOR AND A SURGEON IN PLACES LIKE AFGHANISTAN.

AFTER MUCH PRAYER AND CONTEMPLATION, I ENTERED MY RELIGIOUS ORDER IN 2002, WORKING TO SERVE THE POOR AND THE SICK IN HAITI, SUDAN, KENYA, IRAQ AND WASHINGTON DC. HUMILITY IS AT THE FOUNDATION OF OUR ORDER. THAT MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT TO TALK ABOUT MYSELF.

I CAN SPEAK ABOUT MY EXPERIENCE WORKING FOR THOSE WAR-TORN AND IMPOVERISHED COUNTRIES ALL AROUND THE WORLD. THOSE REFUGEES ALL SHARE A COMMON EXPERIENCE. THEY HAVE ALL BEEN MARGINALIZED, VIEWED AS INSIGNIFICANT, POWERLESS AND VOICELESS. WHILE WE TEND TO THINK OF THE MARGINALIZED AS LIVING BEYOND OUR BORDERS, THE TRUTH IS THE LARGEST MARGINALIZED GROUP IN THE WORLD CAN BE FOUND HERE IN THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE THE UNBORN.

AS CHRISTIANS, WE FIRST MET JESUS AS A STIRRING EMBRYO IN THE WOMB OF A NODE WHAT MOTHER AND SAW HE BORN NINE MONTHS LATER IN THE POVERTY. IT IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT JESUS STOOD UP FOR WHAT WAS JUST AND ULTIMATELY CRUCIFIED BECAUSE WHAT HE SAID WAS NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT OR FASHIONABLE.

AS FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST, WE ARE CALLED TO STAND UP FOR LIFE AGAINST THE PUT A QUICK CORRECT WHO OR FASHIONABLE TODAY. THEY CELEBRATE DESTROYING LIFE IN THE WOMB. KEEP IN MIND, THE LAWS THAT WE CREATE DEFINE HOW WE SEE OUR HUMANITY. WE MUST ASK OURSELVES WHAT WE ARE SAYING WHEN WE GO TO SNUFF OUT AND INNOCENT, VOICELESS, POWERLESS LIFE.

LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION. WHILE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY MAY BE DIFFICULT FOR SOME TO HEAR, I AM SAYING IT BECAUSE I AM NOT JUST PRO-LIFE, I AM PRO-ETERNAL LIFE. I WANT ALL OF US TO END UP IN HEAVEN SOMEDAY.

THIS BRINGS ME TO WHY I AM HERE TODAY. DONALD TRUMP IS THE MOST PRO-LIFE PRESIDENT THIS NATION HAS EVER HAD. PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL STAND UP AGAINST JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS WHO ARE THE MOST ANTI-LIFE PRESIDENTIAL TICKET EVER; EVEN SUPPORTING THE HORRORS OF THE TERM ABORTION AND INFANTICIDE.

BECAUSE OF HIS COURAGE AND CONVICTION, PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS EARNED THE SUPPORT OF AMERICA'S PRO-LIFE IMMUNITY. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, WE ARE ALL PRAYING FOR YOU.
