By Carol Tobias, NRL PAC Director

WASHINGTON (March 15) The U.S. House and U.S. Senate are poised to consider several major pieces of pro-life legislation during the months immediately ahead. What follows is a summary of the current status of some major right-to-life issues in Congress.
* I don't believe a woman's freedom to live her own life, in all cases, outweighs the fetus's right to life.
Al Gore quoted in the Nashville Banner, 7/29/76*
* I have strongly opposed federal funding of abortions. In my opinion, it is wrong to spend federal funds for what is arguably the taking of a human life. It is my deep personal conviction that abortion is wrong. Let me assure you that I share your belief that innocent life must be protected and I have an open mind on how to further this goal.
Al Gore in a letter to a constituent, 8/22/1984. (In NRLC files.)
