WASHINGTON, D.C. – Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement regarding the shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, CO on Friday:
While the investigation into the shooting at the Planned Parenthood center continues, regardless of what the motive is determined to be, we strongly condemn this violence. As the target of domestic terrorism inspired by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the staff of the Family Research Council empathize with all the victims of this violence. All of us at the Family Research Council join with the pro-life movement in praying for the injured officers and victims of these deplorable acts.
Only through peaceful means—not violence—can we truly become a nation that once again values all human life, born and unborn (concluded Perkins).
