      Vote 325, 7/23/1998   Vote 65, 3/20/1997   Vote 756, 11/1/1995   Vote 104, 4/5/2000   Vote 343, 7/24/2002

    • Rep. Clyburn voted to add language to a partial-birth abortion ban that would have created such a large loophole that few, if any, partial-birth abortions would be prevented. (Vote 103, 4/5/00)

    Democrats Want to Fund Abortions with Taxpayer Funds

    Some Americans argue that a woman should have the right to an abortion, while others believe that taking the life of an unborn baby is wrong. Either way a large majority of Americans do not believe their tax dollars should be used to provide abortions.

    • The U.N. Population Fund has supported China and its barbaric family-planning policies of coerced abortions. Such support is morally abhorrent, and taxpayer money should not flow unmitigated to such an organization. This is why an amendment was introduced to strike $25 million in funding for the U.N. Population Fund. Sadly, Rep. Clyburn did not support the amendment. (Vote 362, 7/15/03)

    • Rep. Clyburn voted to use taxpayer money to fund family planning organizations that provide abortions, offer abortion counseling, or lobby other nations for abortions. (Vote 115, 5/16/01)

    Like out of a science fiction novel, the reality of human cloning is upon us. Now, it is up to us to make the responsible ethical and moral decisions for the future.

    Our Flag

    The First Amendment was never intended to be a free pass to say or do whatever an individual wants. For instance, libel and slander are not covered under free speech in the First Amendment. The flag is a unique symbol of our nation's freedom for which many brave veterans have given their lives to preserve. Republicans pushed for legislation which would have simply protected our national symbol of freedom from desecration.

    • In a shocking and unprecedented ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals Ninth Circuit deemed the Pledge of Allegiance as unconstitutional. An amendment was offered and adopted barring the Department of Justice from using funds to enforce this ruling. (Vote 406, 7/22/03) Instead of standing up for our flag, Rep. Clyburn joined more than 100 Democrats in opposing the amendment.

    • Due to the leadership of President Bush, the United States is the world leader in fighting HIV/AIDS in Africa.

Clyburn thought otherwise and voted against the amendment. (Vote 155, 5/1/03)

    • Children are among the most vulnerable in our society. On March 13, 2002, House Republicans were joined by 162 Democrats in passing the “Repeat Child Sex Offenders” bill.

    • Opposed a bill to prohibit the sale to minors of a broad range of material that contains violent or sexual depictions. This plan would punish offenders with a fine and/or prison sentence. (Vote 213, 6/16/99 )
