As a member of Congress, I have a 100 percent pro-life voting record and have consistently supported a ban on abortion with the exceptions of rape, incest, and endangerment to a mother’s life. I believe all persons share an essential human dignity, including unborn children. I have supported efforts in Congress to end partial-birth abortions, stop federally funded abortions, and prevent unethical research on embryos and the use of human cloning.
I have cosponsored numerous pieces of pro-life legislation including the Life at Conception Act, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, and the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act.
As a nation, we have come a long way in protecting the unborn since the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade, but clearly we have a long way to go in this fight. I believe we should strive to create a culture of life as a country, and I will continue to fight hard in Congress to promote life in this nation.
