Texas Republican says he shouted 'baby killer'

WASHINGTON (AP) - Texas Republican Rep. Randy Neugebauer says he was the lawmaker who shouted out "baby killer" when Rep. Bart Stupak, whose vote was crucial to passage of the health care bill, was speaking on the House floor Sunday evening.

The third-term congressman says he apologized to Stupak. He says in a statement that while he remains "heartbroken" over passage of the bill, "I deeply regret that my actions were mistakenly interpreted as a direct reference" to Stupak.

Neugebauer says he shouted out "it's a baby killer" in reference to an agreement reached between President Barack Obama and anti-abortion Democrats led by Stupak.
