One victim, or two?
By Douglas Johnson
Some pro-abortion leaders, like Planned Parenthood president Gloria Feldt, and some United States senators, like John Kerry of Massachusetts, believe that there are no unborn victims of violence.
Carol Lyons of Scott County, Kentucky, knows better. Her 18-year-old daughter, Ashley, and her unborn grandson, Landon, died together at the hands of a murderer on January 7.
"Nobody can tell me that there were not two victims - - I placed Landon in his mother's arms, wrapped in a baby blanket that I had sewn for him, just before I kissed my daughter goodbye for the last time and closed the casket," Mrs. Lyons said.
As NRL News goes to press, pro-abortion Massachusetts Senator John Kerry has taken an early lead in the delegate count for the Democratic nomination for president. As of this writing, former Vermont Governor Howard Dean, North Carolina Senator John Edwards, retired General Wesley Clark, Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich, and the Reverend Al Sharpton are still in the race.
Two candidates have already dropped out of the running following disappointing results in the early primaries and caucuses: Rep. Richard Gephardt (Mo.) and Senator Joe Lieberman (Ct.). Former Illinois Senator Carol Moseley Braun dropped out prior to the initial voting.
On February 3 Kerry carried three states and two caucuses while Edwards and Clark each won one state (South Carolina and Oklahoma, respectively). Dean has yet to win a primary. But win or lose, all have been equally strong in their pro-abortion positions, even stridently so.

From the President
* "President Bush has kept at least one campaign promise he has become the only President in our nation's history to make abortion a federal crime" [by signing the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act]. --NARAL president Kate Michelman on January 22, 2004
* "If George W. Bush is allowed to fill those seats [vacancies on the Supreme Court], it could mean the end of reproductive privacy and the end of Roe v. Wade. I intend to do everything I can do to see that does not happen." --from Kate Michelman's statement announcing her retirement from the presidency of NARAL
* The National Right to Life Political Action Committee has endorsed President George W. Bush for re-election.
* All Democratic candidates for the presidency support abortion on demand and are committed to appoint only pro-abortion judges.
* The pro-abortionists and their allies have established three major initiatives for the 2004 election: The America Votes project with a budget of $85 million (although lately there has been talk of a $250 million budget), the America Coming Together (ACT) political action committee with a budget of $75 million, and the March for Freedom of Choice on April 25, 2004, in Washington, D.C. The goal is to replace George W. Bush with a pro-abortion president and "elect progressive officials at every level in 2004" (ACT).
