"I have serious concerns about the treaty's impact on the pro-life and pro-family communities. In addition, the construct of this treaty creates a precedent that would be unhealthy for our nation. The treaty could allow individual groups to challenge sovereign governments. That's a slippery slope for the United States to go down and among the reasons I voted against this treaty."
