Today, Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06), a member of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, released the following statement on the recently released video of a Planned Parenthood official discussing the trafficking of baby body parts.
"I am appalled by the grotesque, inhumane, and illegal practices apparently sanctioned and facilitated by a senior Planned Parenthood official. This video reveals not only a complete disregard for the sanctity of human life, but acts that can and should be prosecuted under federal law. Any organization that permits or fails to prevent such horrific activities is complicit in these crimes. I firmly believe that protecting life, especially the lives of unborn children, is one of the most profound obligations we have to future generations. I applaud Chairman Upton and Chairman Goodlatte for promptly opening investigations into an issue that should concern every American."
