I have never shied away from the awesome responsibility to standing up for those who are most in need of our defense -- Georgia's countless unborn. All life is precious, and I fully support pro-life measures in our state.
During my time in the Senate, I have proudly enjoyed the continuous approval of the Georgia Right to Life in its annual assessment of how well we undertake efforts to protect the unborn.
I was co-author of a groundbreaking bill to end the partial-birth abortion practice in Georgia- placing our state far ahead of others nationally in life-affirming legislation.
I helped pass legislation allowing prosecutors to seek charges of double-homicide in cases where a pregnant woman is murdered.
I have supported measures to require abortion doctors to show ultrasounds to their patients prior to performing any procedures. Women deserve this additional information.
I also helped draft legislation allowing pharmacists to forego selling so-called "abortion pills" if they have a religious or moral aversion to carrying such medications. Pharmacists should have the right to not sell these items if they do not wish to do so.
