Bush Administration Off to Fast Start

 

 


Ashcroft Confirmation Highlights Great Start

Battered but unbowed, pro-life former Senator John Aschroft is now the Attorney General of the United States.
In winning Senate confirmation 58-42, Mr. Ashcroft weathered a barrage of scurrilous attacks reminiscent of the infamous 1987 offensive against Robert Bork which derailed his nomination to serve on the United States Supreme Court.
Fittingly, Ashcroft was sworn into office by Justice Clarence Thomas, who repelled a similar all-out assault launched in 1991 against his nomination to the United States Supreme Court.
Described by Senate Republicans as one of the most qualified nominees in history, Ashcroft's long and distinguished career was caricatured and distorted beyond recognition. His service in the Senate and his terms both as governor of Missouri and as its attorney general were ignored in a witch hunt intended to demonize a nominee loathed by Planned Parenthood and NARAL.

 


MARCH FOR LIFE DRAWS ENORMOUS CROWD

One of the largest March for Life Rallies in memory shown here passing in front of the United States Supreme Court.

By Dave Andrusko

In one of the largest Marches for Life in memory, a gigantic crowd of pro-lifers assembled at the foot of the Washington Memorial January 22 to remember the over 40 million unborn babies who have died since 1973.
A combination of a sunny if cold day and the great enthusiasm generated by the replacement of pro-abortion President Bill Clinton by pro-life President George W. Bush lent the commemoration of the 28th anniversary of Roe v. Wade an unmistakable aura of optimism and renewed commitment.
President Bush added to the atmosphere of renewal and reinvigoration with a strong pro-life message read to the huge throng by pro-life champion Chris Smith (R-NJ).

From the President

Wanda Franz, Ph.D.

A GOOD START, A WARNING SHOT, AND TROUBLE AHEAD

I deeply appreciate your message and your work.

We share a great goal: to work toward a day when every child is welcomed in life and protected in law. We know this will not come easily, or all at once. But the goal leads us onward: to build a culture of life, affirming that every person, at every stage and season of life, is created equal in God's image.

The promises of the Declaration of Independence are not just for the strong, the independent, or the healthy. They are for everyone--including unborn children.

All of you marching today have never tired in a good cause. Thank you for your conviction, your idealism, and your courage. May God bless you all.

--President George W. Bush, message to March for Life participants, January 22, 2001

A GOOD START

Coming into office, our new president promised to "change the tone" in Washington. With this message he got off to a splendid start. We have been waiting for such a presidential message for eight long years. So we have reason to enjoy the moment. But now we must get back to work, because--as the President says--"this will not come easily, or all at once."
