Texas congressman yelled 'baby killer' at Democrat



Published: Mon, March 22, 2010 @ 2:30 p.m.

The Washington Post is reporting that U.S. Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, admitted today that he yelled "baby killer" as U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., urged his fellow Democrats to vote down a Republican amendment on abortion services in the health-care legislation Sunday night.

Neugebauer told the Post he has apologized to Stupak.

"Last night was the climax of weeks and months of debate on a health-care bill that my constituents fear and do not support. In the heat and emotion of the debate, I exclaimed the phrase 'it's a baby killer' in reference to the agreement reached by the Democratic leadership. While I remain heartbroken over the passage of this bill and the tragic consequences it will have for the unborn, I deeply regret that my actions were mistakenly interpreted as a direct reference to Congressman Stupak himself," Neugebauer said in a statement.

"I have apologized to Mr. Stupak and also apologize to my colleagues for the manner in which I expressed my disappointment about the bill. The House Chamber is a place of decorum and respect. The timing and tone of my comment last night was inappropriate."
