The article correctly points out that I offered the Nelson, Hatch, Casey, et al amendment, which was tabled by a vote of During discussions with leadership, I then offered an alternative to protect against using federal funds to pay for elective abortions.
The writer is mistaken in criticizing this language as not protecting life.
