Throughout my years as a public servant I have consistently supported efforts that promote strong family values based on a strong moral foundation. Along with the majority of Kansans, I believe that every life is a precious gift that we all have a responsibility to protect. As my record clearly shows, I oppose abortion on demand and the federal funding of abortions. In addition, I continue to oppose the use of tax dollars to fund abortion services at home and overseas. I remain committed to supporting proposals to tighten restrictions on abortion and to support legislation that strengthens the moral fabric of our society.   Along this line, I was a cosponsor of the Marriage Protection Act during the 109th Congress. The resolution proposed to amend the Constitution to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman. I supported the amendment because I believe it is wrong for a select minority to impose their definition of marriage on the nation, as we have witnessed through the actions of some state supreme courts.   Kansas adheres to a longstanding policy that does not recognize same sex marriages. That policy was confirmed in April 2005 when seventy percent of Kansans voted overwhelmingly in favor to amend the state constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. I continue to support efforts that preserve the institution of marriage as a cornerstone of our society.
