“First of all the issue of abortion is a very personal one to me,” Coleman responded, as he talked about the early birth defect-related deaths of two of his four children. “Roe vs. Wade is the law of the land. I’m not going to overturn the Senate. The difference between you (Wellstone) and I is even on issues where we have deep personal agreement, I still seek to find some common ground.
Coleman called for an end to partial birth abortions and passage of legislation which would require minors receive parental consent prior to having an abortion.
