Lee’s Statement on Planned Parenthood Shootings

(Nov. 28) – Rep. Pete Lee, D-Colorado Springs, released the following statement today after three were killed and nine wounded at a Planned Parenthood clinic on the west side of Colorado Springs.
“We grieve with the families of those who were killed and wish for the speedy recovery of those who were wounded. We are grateful for the bravery of the Colorado Springs Police Department and the other agencies that supported it, especially the UCCS Police, who lost one of their own.
“We will get through this, and we will come together. Because in Colorado Springs, we are a resilient and compassionate city. Our mountain setting is beautiful and our people are kind and generous. I ask people around the country and around the world not to judge Colorado Springs by the actions of one individual whose motives, whatever they were, cannot possibly justify murder.”
