In his speech at the pro-life rally held in Philadelphia Friday, DailyWire commentator Matt Walsh gave an impassioned address outlining why the cause to protect the unborn is such a crucial issue to engage in.
Friday’s rally was held outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Philadelphia where, just last week, a Democratic lawmaker filmed himself harassing pro-life teenagers.
“I’m grateful that we are not merely complaining right now. No, we decided to do something, we responded. We are engaging on the issue in the real world. I hope we continue this,” Walsh bellowed, speaking in front of a massive banner that read, “Pro-Life Pro-Love.”
“We are saying to the pro-life activists that they are not alone and that we are with them,” Walsh continued. “We can’t just be pro-life in our minds, we have to live that truth — to bring that truth out into the real world.”
Then, Matt personally addressed Sims himself.
“We are sending a message to bullies like Brian Sims. We will not be intimidated, we will not be silenced. If you try to shut us up, we are only going to get louder,” he declared to rapturous applause.
“If you try to shame us, we are only going to stand taller,” he continued, challenging Sims to “pick on someone your own size.”
Walsh continued: “We know that our cause is just. We know that we are right and we are firm in that truth. We have truth on our side and we will wield it like a sword to protect the unborn.”
Posing a question to Sims, he said, “Can you look us in the eyes and tell us why you think babies should be killed? If we cannot see the worth and value in a child, then who can we see it in?”
Walsh went on to say that “abortion is not a reproductive issue” as the left would label it, because at point of abortion, “reproduction has already taken place.”
“Why do we care so much about this issue?” Matt asked, “because life is precious — that’s it, that’s our entire argument.”
“Let the children live,” Walsh finished. “Let them live!”
