Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, recently received the 2015 Minnesota Eagle Forum Award for outstanding leadership in support of traditional marriage and for his dedication in affirming and advancing “pro-life, pro-family” efforts. The award was given in September by Phyllis Schlafly at the Annual Eagle Forum Council in St. Louis, Missouri.
“Rep. Gruenhagen understands that marriage and the family have formed the foundation upon which this nation is built,” said Marlene Reid, issues chairman for Minnesota Eagle Forum. “He is willing to step forward, sometimes into the lion’s den, to uphold that foundation and fight for conservative family principles.”
Reid added that Gruenhagen has said he will offer legislation in 2016 calling for an investigation of Planned Parenthood, and insisting that tax state and federal dollars no longer go to the organization.
“Furthermore,” she added, “Rep. Gruenhagen intends to demand that the Minnesota Department of Health conscientiously enforces Minnesota statute 145.1621, which provides for the dignified and sanitary disposition of the remains of aborted human fetuses.”
