Protecting Life

I have a long record of upholding the sanctity of life.  As a state senator, I authored the legislation that put in place regulations for abortion clinics and created the twenty-four hour waiting period for abortions.  As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, I supported the ban on partial birth abortions, which the Supreme Court upheld.  I have cosponsored various other bills in both the House and Senate reflecting my belief that life begins at conception.  Most recently, in June 2008, I introduced the Life at Conception Act.  This legislation simply defines life as beginning at conception, expanding protections in the 14th Amendment to unborn babies.
