Any abortion decision should remain between woman & doctor

I am opposed to today’s Supreme Court ruling [allowing states to ban partial-birth abortion] or any ruling that places restrictions on reproductive freedom. Today’s decision authorizes federal intervention to prohibit a nationwide procedure that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has found at times to be medically necessary. Any decision on abortion should remain between a woman and her doctor. There is no room for interference from politicians and judges.

Stem Cell research should not be limited

Stem Cell research is something the Senator feels strongly about -- and believes that it is wrong to limit the advancement of science. He spoke of the day when using a corpse for medical research was unheard of, and condemned -- and pointed out that that would lead to many medical breakthroughs.
