Last Friday, a tragic shooting broke out near a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Three people lost their lives, and at least nine were wounded.

The following statement is attributed to Joe Pojman, Ph.D., executive director of Texas Alliance for Life:

We are shocked and saddened by the recent shootings at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Colorado Springs. We condemn this and similar acts of violence.

Texas Alliance for Life’s mission is to advocate the protection of innocent human life from conception through natural death using peaceful, legal means. Acts of violence like this only serve to harm not build a culture of life.

We believe the best and only way to achieve this mission is by educating the public about the value of each human life beginning at conception, working through the legislative, legal, and political system, and promoting compassionate alternatives to abortion.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the individuals who were killed or wounded, as well as to their families.
