Sali sponsoring anti-abortion legislation

New Idaho Congressman Bill Sali says he’ll be co-sponsoring a “Right to Life Act” to be introduced in Congress later this week “that affirms the personhood of the unborn.” In a statement, he said, “I promise to be a voice for these small humans – both in Idaho and across the nation.”

Sali is known for pushing an array of anti-abortion legislation during his 16 years in the state Legislature, though much of it was struck down by courts as unconstitutional. In his campaign for Congress, he said he’d continue to work on the abortion issue, but downplayed it in favor of focusing on immigration issues and federal spending.
