Six Ways To Defeat Pro-Life Candidates

By Carol Long Tobias, NRL PAC Director

In every major election since 1980, pro-life candidates have had the advantage when it comes to voters and the abortion issue. Consistently, of those voters who select their candidate based on his or her abortion position, more will vote for the pro-life candidate than the pro-abortion candidate. These votes will come from men and women, Republicans and Democrats - - all segments of society.

The Tragedy of Justice Harry Blackmun

* In a 1983 interview with the Associated Press on the eve of his most famous decision's 10-year anniversary, Blackmun repeated the phrase "author of the abortion decision" slowly and softly. "We all pick up tabs," he said. "I'll carry this one to my grave."
-AP wire story about the death of Justice Harry Blackmun, 3/4/99

* People forget that it was a seven to two decision. They always typify it as a Blackmun opinion. But I think [Roe v. Wade] was right in 1973, and I think it was right today.
-Justice Blackmun announcing his retirement, 4/6/94

* For the remainder of his career, Justice Blackmun regarded Roe v. Wade with pride and a fierce attachment. "If it goes down the drain," he told a group of law students in 1986, "I'd still regard Roe v. Wade as a landmark in the progress of the emancipation of women."
-Reporter Linda Greenhouse in the New York Times, 3/5/99
