Protecting the Unborn
Government has an obligation to protect the safety of the most vulnerable among us. I believe that life begins at conception, and I will continue to support the rights of the unborn.
I have cosponsored numerous bills aimed at protecting and furthering the right to life throughout my time in Congress. One of my proudest moments was the passage of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003. That important legislation, which I authored, put an end to the heinous practice of partially delivering an infant only as a means to kill him or her. I am also committed to supporting and expanding important legal protections for doctors and other health care providers who refuse to perform abortion procedures to which they are morally opposed.
