On his congressional website, Rep. Brady states: "As a co-sponsor and proud parent of two young boys -- adopted young boys, whose family exists only because two women in two difficult situations in two different states chose life and gave us a family, I am proud to rise in strong support of the rule to allow the House to consider the Protect Life Act."
