Roe Awarded ‘True Blue’ Award
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after being awarded the Family Research Council Action’s ‘True Blue’ Award. This award demonstrates an unwavering support of faith, family and freedom during the first session of the 115th Congress.
Rep. Roe said:
“As an OBGYN and ardent supporter of the sanctity of life, it is an honor and privilege to receive this award, as I will always be a strong and constant voice for the right to life. I have the responsibility and privilege as a legislator to defend those who do not have a voice, and I take that duty very seriously. I thank the Family Research Council for protecting pro-life principles, family values and our religious freedoms.”
Family Research Council’s President, Tony Perkins said:
“We thank Rep. Roe for consistently voting to defend and advance faith, family and freedom. As a 'True Blue Member' he voted 100 percent on FRC Action’s Scorecard including votes to repeal and replace Obamacare, deliver long-needed tax cuts that are already providing much needed relief to working families, stand for religious liberty, overturn President Obama’s transgender military policy, end the forced partnership between taxpayers and Planned Parenthood, and protect pain capable babies.
“Rep. Roe deserves praise for his unwavering commitment to stand for life, family, marriage, and religious liberty. Tennesseans should be encouraged to know that they have a Member of Congress such as Rep. Roe who has come alongside other members and our president to begin the work of rebuilding our nation, and protecting the very values that made America great,” concluded Perkins.
