I am strongly pro-life, and have fought to protect the rights of the unborn my entire career. I will continue to fight for this cause because I value the sanctity of all human life. Although I find abortion in any form immoral and inhumane, one form is particularly heinous to me and to a majority of Americans: partial-birth abortion.

As you may know, the term "partial-birth abortion" refers to a method of abortion called, by the medical community, "dilation and extraction." Though it is almost too graphic to describe, this type of abortion occurs when a doctor partially delivers a living fetus, then kills the baby by stabbing its skull and suctioning out its brains. I find this abhorrent and believe that the majority of evidence before Congress demonstrates that a partial-birth abortion is never necessary to preserve the health of a woman.

I was glad to support the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, which prohibits any physician or other individual from performing this horrific procedure.
