As the father of four adopted children, I believe that life deserves legal protection at every stage of development: from conception to natural death. Our Founding Fathers wrote that it was self-evident that human beings were "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." I believe that if we do not protect Life, then all other rights are without meaning.
I have a 100% pro-life voting record, and that is why Kansans for Life and dozens of other state and national pro-life leaders have endorsed my candidacy. I have been active in efforts to outlaw partial-birth abortion and euthanasia, pass parental notification laws, and voted to protect unborn children under the same criminal code as other people.
I have led the effort to defund Planned Parenthood of all their state funding, and prohibit taxpayer funding of embryonic stem-cell research. I will do the same in Congress.
As your Congressman, I will work tirelessly to protect the rights of the unborn in addition to upholding a 100% pro-life voting record.
