The Pro-Life Movement is Alive and Wellby Representative Bill Shuster

SHUSTER. Mr. Speaker, I thank the gentleman for yielding and also
thank him for setting up this Special Order tonight and his leadership
in his years in Congress and the pro-life movement.
Life is the most precious gift we are given. The youngest and most vulnerable among us are a blessing. We must never stop working to protect them.
Unfortunately, 2015 brought renewed attacks on life, and horrific new events came to light that showed us just how important this fight is. Videos were released exposing Planned Parenthood's barbaric practices. The things we saw being discussed and done in these videos were appalling. They underscore why we must continue to do everything we can to uphold the sanctity of life.
I am proud that today we are sending down to the President a piece of legislation that will defund Planned Parenthood. I am proud of the work this House has done to bring attention to this issue and advance the cause of life.
I have been honored to count myself among those who are in this fight, but we can never rest on our work to protect the unborn. Together, we must work to ensure that the terrible practices of Planned Parenthood come to an end and that life is valued, cherished, and always protected.
