    Thursday Feb 5 | US News & World Report

    After leading the charge against the House vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Children Protection Act, North Carolina Republican Rep.

  20. No, It's Not 'Childish' to Insist on a Reporting Requirement for Late-Term AbortionsRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Feb 3 | National Review Online
