Nominates Ashcroft, Thompson to Cabinet
Contacts Needed to U.S. Senators on Ashcroft Nomination and McCain-Feingold Bill to Restrict Free Speech About Politicians
JANUARY 12, 2001
Beginning as soon as late January, the U.S. Senate will deal with two
issues of key concern to the pro-life movement. The first of these is
President-elect Bush's nomination of former Missouri Senator John
Ashcroft as attorney general. The second is possible Senate
consideration of the McCain- Feingold "campaign finance
reform" legislation that could severely restrict the right of NRLC
and other pro-life groups to communicate with the public about the
actions of those who hold or seek federal office.

The time is up for Bill Clinton; and that is very good. He was the nation's first pro-abortion president--for eight very long years; and that was very bad. But the anti-life "legacy" that he and the pro-abortion lobby achieved could have been far worse.
With the inauguration of Bill Clinton on January 20, 1993, the pro-abortionists' most extravagant dreams seemed to have been realized. They couldn't ask for much more: The pro-abortion leadership of the Democratic Party controlled both houses of Congress, and in the White House sat a president publicly committed to a woman's "right to choose." And he meant it. Unlike so many other "principles" that Bill Clinton would conveniently forget later on, making and keeping abortion on demand legal in any shape or form was very important to him. In his second term, he proved his fierce support for abortion rights when he single- handedly prevented the ban on partial-birth abortions from becoming the law of the land--twice.
