28. Donnelly was a co-sponsor of the bill

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Donnelly

Donnelly is morally opposed to abortion, and is trying to make adoption more accessible to families.[87] On the issue of abortion Donnely said “As a pro-life congressman, I am committed to protecting life at all stages.” [88] In 2011, he co-sponsored HR 3, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.[89] The bill contained an exception for "forcible rape," which opponents criticized as potentially excluding drug-facilitated rape, date rape, and other forms of rape.[90] The bill also allowed an exception for minors who are victims of incest.[89]
In 2011 Donnelly received a 20% rating from pro-choice political action group NARAL.[91] Before 2011, Donnelly had consistently received a 0% rating every year from NARAL during his time in the House.[92][93][94] Donnelly has received high scores with the pro-life group National Right to Life Committee, never receiving a lower than under 70% rating.

TPM talks a little bit about his explanation for it.
