    ROBY. Madam Speaker, I thank the gentlelady from Tennessee for her leadership on this.



    I have been intrigued at the latest rhetoric on the so-called ``war on women.'' I am intrigued because at some point pro-abortion activists stopped using the word ``abortion.'' Instead of using the ``A'' word, they use terms like ``women's health'' or ``reproductive rights.'' It is a clever word game designed to disguise the truth and build artificial support. After all, who would be against the health of women? Who would oppose anyone's right to reproduce? But what about the baby's health? What about the unborn child's ``right'' to life? They don't call it abortion anymore because people understand what abortion is. It is the taking of a life. It is death where life once existed. It is cruel and tragic, and there is no place in the Federal budget for funding it.
