NATIONAL RIGHT TO
LIFE PAC ANNOUNCES
ENDORSEMENT OF GEORGE W. BUSH FOR
Today National Right to Life PAC announced its
endorsement of George W. Bush for President of the United States.
"President Bush has shown himself to be a great pro-life president,"
stated Carol Tobias, political director of the National Right to Life
Committee. "He has backed with actions his statement that
unborn children should be 'welcomed in life and protected in law.'"
Since taking office, President Bush has, among other things, reinstated
the Mexico City Policy, blocked federal funding of research that kills
human embryos, and signed both the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act and
the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act.
At the signing of the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, President Bush
said, "The Born-Alive Infants Protection Act is a step toward the day
when every child is welcomed in life and protected in law. It is
a step toward the day when the promoise of the Declaration of
Independence will apply to everyone, not just those with the voice and
power to defent their rights."
Of the Democrats seeking the nomination, all are pro-abortion. A
review of their records and statements shows that there is practically
no difference in their very extreme positions on abortion.
Senators Kerry, Edwards, and Lieberman have solid pro-abortion voting
records. All three voted against the Partial Birth Abortion Ban
In his speech formally launching his presidential campaign, Kerry
emphatically stated, "As President, I will only appoint Supreme Court
Justices who will uphold a woman's right to choose." Kerry has
already come out in opposition even to the Unborn Victims of Violence
Act ("Laci and Conner's Law"). Sharon Rocha -- mother of Laci
Peterson, grandmother of Conner -- has sent Kerry a letter asking him
to reconsider this stance.
Howard Dean is opposed to any legal limits on abortion. He has
said that he would veto any parental notification bill and that he will
do everything he can to overturn the recently enacted Partial-Birth
Abortion Ban Act.
In a recent interview with The Union Leader, in Manchester, NH,
Westley Clark expressed his opposition to any limits on, "anything up
to delivery," and even "anything up to the head coming out of the womb."
"The Democratic candidates may be trying to out-do each other on who
is the mose pro-abortion, but President Bush's pro life record is
clear," stated Tobias. "He is helping to build a culture
In a Gallup Poll Special Report, "Public Opinion About Abortion --
An In-Depth Review," the authors stated, "For all six presidential
elections beween 1984 and 2000, the abortion issue has been an
advantage for Republican candidates."
