Since the non underlined portion of sentence mentions "still practical",there has to be a specific reason -which is there and is meaningful in option C.
Ans:C

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

Choices B, C and E change the meaning by adding the words ‘alone’, ‘solely’ and ‘if only’. These choices imply that the Senator supports the legislation for only
one reason. It is possible that there are other reasons for the Senator’s support. ‘While’ introduces a contrast. There is no contrast between the Senator’s belief
and the basis for that belief. Choice A is the correct answer.

(C) solely in that child abductions should be prevented

(D) while the abductions of children should be prevented

(E) if only because abductions of children should be prevented

Do not see how any of options except A can be the answer. They simply do not make sense.
