Roskam: I Will Always Stand for Life


Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06), a member of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, released the following statement after House passage of H.R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015, and H.R. 3504, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Roskam helped introduce the Defund Planned Parenthood Act in July following the release of multiple videos of senior Planned Parenthood officials discussing the trafficking of fetal body parts.

“We must remain vigilant in our fight to protect the most vulnerable among us—those infants and the unborn who are unable to protect themselves. The horrific Planned Parenthood practices exposed in recent weeks brings a renewed urgency to this issue. These bills are an important step forward in defense of life, and I will always stand for life.”

Roskam also spoke on the House floor in support of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
