Pray For Pro-Life Rep. Steve Scalise Injured in Shooting

Congressman Steve Scalise, a top pro-life Republican in the House of Representatives, was injured today when a gunman opened fire on a group of Congressional Republicans practicing for the annual Congressional softball game.

The gunman wounded both the Republican lawmaker as well as other people. Scalise was shot in the hip and several Capitol police officers were also victims of the shooting. Because he is part of the Republican leadership, Scalise has protection from the US Capitol Police. One of those members — who was injured himself — ultimately shot the gunman, who is now in captivity.

Five people were taken to area hospitals after the shooting but Scalise appeared to have suffered the brunt of the damage and is reportedly undergoing surgery at this time. . . .

Congressman Scalise is a prominent pro-life Advocate in Congress with a longstanding record fighting abortion.

He led the effort calling on the Obama Administration to reverse its unconstitutional mandate forcing religious organizations to include drugs that can cause abortion and birth control in the health care plans of their employees. . . . Read Moree:
