A Texas Republican on Monday acknowledged he yelled out the words “baby killer” 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: “It’s a baby killer!”

“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,” Neugebauer said in a statement.

“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 added that “the House Chamber is a place of decorum and respect. The timing and tone of my comment last night was inappropriate.”
