WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement on the resignation of Speaker John Boehner:
"American voters who put the Republican Party into the majority have grown weary of GOP leaders running into these political battles waving a white flag.
"If Republicans will not fight to end taxpayer funding for an organization that is trafficking in baby body parts, and possibly infanticide, what will they fight for?
"We welcome Republican leadership that understands that some values, like life, religious liberty and national defense are worth fighting for – no matter what," concluded Perkins.
