Today, former Congressman Henry Hyde will be laid to rest after a funeral mass at St. John Neumann Church in St. Charles, Illinois. Mr. Hyde passed away on November 29, 2007 at the age of 83.

Henry Hyde served in the United States House of Representatives for 32 years, representing the 6th Congressional District. During that time, he became the most eloquent and passionate advocate in Congress for those he called "the tiniest members of the human family," the innocent unborn victims of abortion. Regardless of his colleagues opinions regarding Roe v. Wade and the legalized killing of unborn babies, when Henry Hyde spoke, everyone listened. His brilliance in articulating the pro-life message remains unmatched.

Years ago, in a speech, Congressman Hyde said this:

"When the time comes as it surely will, when we face that terrible moment, the final judgment, I've often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates there, you are there alone standing before God and a terror will rip your soul like nothing you can imagine.

I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone.

I think there will be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard very beautifully and very loudly in the next world and I think they will plead for everyone who has been in the movement.

They will say to God, 'Spare them, because they loved us,' and God will look at us and say not, 'did you succeed?' but 'did you try?' "

Henry Hyde tried very hard. May he rest in peace.


Rep. Peter Roskam (IL-6) has introduced H. Res. 843, a bipartisan resolution to honor Congressman Hyde. Last month, Rep. Hyde was awarded the presidential Medal of Freedom, the very highest honor the President can bestow on an American citizen. Henry Hyde was a statesman, a gentleman, and a man of conviction and principle who was deeply committed to protecting liberty, justice, and, above all, respect for life.

Please encourage your Member of Congress to cosponsor H. Res. 843 and ask them to urge the Democrat leadership to bring the Resolution before the House for a vote.
