Issue Position: Protecting Life

I have a long record of upholding the sanctity of life. As a state senator, I authored the legislation that put in place regulations for abortion clinics and created the twenty-four hour waiting period for abortions. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, I supported the ban on partial birth abortions, which the Supreme Court upheld. I have cosponsored various other bills in both the House and Senate reflecting my belief that life begins at conception. Most recently, in June 2008, I introduced the Life at Conception Act. This legislation simply defines life as beginning at conception, expanding protections in the 14th Amendment to unborn babies.
