Miguel Estrada, the first Hispanic to be nominated to serve on the prestigious U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, has withdrawn his name from consideration. Estrada's supporters in the Senate were unable to end an six-month-long filibuster engineered by pro-abortion Senate Democrats.
"Miguel Estrada's nomination was blocked for one reason and one reason only," said David N. O'Steen, Ph.D., NRLC executive director. "He refused to commit to supporting abortion."

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tn.) fought to confirm Estrada. House Majority Leader Tom Delay (R-Tx.) said Democratic senators who blocked Estrada were guilty of "political hate crime."

Pat Anderson, the attorney for Robert and Mary Schindler. Robert Schindler, Terri Shindler-Shiavo's father.

Blocked at every turn by courts in Florida, the parents of Terri Schindler-Schiavo have taken their battle to save their 39-year-old brain-damaged daughter to the federal courts. However, U.S. District Judge Richard A. Lazzara showed little interest in intervening at the initial hearing September 2, according to the Associated Press (AP) and the Orlando Sentinel.

Although highly skeptical, Lazzara gave Robert and Mary Schindler 10 days to amend a lawsuit that they filed August 30 "in what their lawyer admitted was haste caused by fear that their daughter might die from illness during the weekend," according to the AP.

From the President

Wanda Franz, Ph.D.


Our opponents pine for the days of the Clinton presidency. True, Bill Clinton lied and waffled and "triangulated" whenever his political survival was at stake, but he never disappointed his pro-abortion supporters. He was their friend.

When Al Gore lost the 2000 election to George W. Bush, they were furious. Al Gore was their friend, too.

The Florida election results were verified by the state and by unofficial recounts through accounting firms hired by the mainstream press. In all cases the result was the same: George W. Bush won that election and, therefore, the presidency. Nevertheless, the myth of a "stolen election" settled into the feverish minds of left-wing "progressives." So, undeterred by the facts, they are very angry at George W. Bush. They want to defeat him in 2004.

Given the public's steady drift in the pro-life direction, they are also very much afraid that the days of Roe v. Wade are numbered. How much longer will the pro-abortionists in the U.S. Senate be able to obstruct the appointment of judges who respect the Constitution and follow the law--instead of inventing it on the bench? How much longer will they be able to filibuster and impede pro-life legislation? There is only one thing for them to do: Defeat George W. Bush and as many pro-life candidates as possible in 2004.
