A Texas Republican on Monday acknowledged he yelled out the words â€œbaby killerâ€ during a floor speech by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) on healthcare reform.
Rep. Randy Neugebauer said he was not calling the anti-abortion-rights Stupak a name, and instead was referring to the legislation.
The 60-year-old lawmaker, who apologized to Stupak on Monday, said he exclaimed: â€œItâ€™s a baby killer!â€
â€œIn the heat and emotion of the debate, I exclaimed the phrase â€˜Itâ€™s a baby killerâ€™ in reference to the agreement reached by the Democratic leadership,â€ Neugebauer said in a statement.
â€œWhile 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.â€
Neugebauer added that â€œthe House Chamber is a place of decorum and respect. The timing and tone of my comment last night was inappropriate.â€
