  • Bush's Comments on Abortion Spark Debate About His Position
    well being of the patient This wording has allowed abortions to be performed for any reason NRLC said in a statement released last Wednesday However Bush has clearly stated on several occasions that the circumstances when abortion should be allowed are limited to protect the life of the mother rape or incest not including the pro abortion health of the mother exception Bush describes himself a pro life person and has said he would back a constitutional amendment to ban most abortions A statement released by Bush s exploratory committee said that his consistent position on abortion is he is pro life with the exception of rape incest and the life of the mother He has not put that as his main focus because the amendment lacks support Instead he believes the country should focus on ways to reduce the number of abortions The statement continued the Roe v Wade decision legalizing abortion will not be overturned until hearts are changed Until then we should focus on ways to reduce abortion There is no way his stance can be described as pro life said Colleen Parro director of the Republican National Coalition for Life Yet the Republicans for Life Political Action Committee a national group working to elect pro life Republicans over GOP abortion advocates issued a statement calling Parro s assertion wrong The PAC noted that her organization has declined to support hundreds of pro life candidates The pro life movement has historically supported candidates who take rape and incest exceptions because those candidates agree that abortion kills unborn children and that it s horribly wrong Such candidates vote pro life support pro life legislation and have worked alongside the pro life movement in many battles over the years the Republicans for Life PAC statement indicated A spokesperson for National Right to Life expressed similar seniments Governor Bush s position would eliminate about 98 percent of all abortions currently being performed and we would certainly regard that as a pro life position said Carol Tobias head of NRLC s political action committee We are not going to fight with someone who agrees with us on 98 percent of the cases NRLC points to another example of Bush s stance being twisted the assertion that he would support a constitutional amendment only if more voters supported it Bush has affirmed his support for a human life amendment This is true because it takes two thirds of both the U S House and Senate to pass a constitutional amendment and three fourths of the state legislatures to ratify it the NRLC statement said There is nowhere near that level of support in Congress at this time NRLC Political Action Committee Director Carol Long Tobias said Governor Bush s support of legislation to save the lives we can in the meantime such as banning partial birth abortion and requiring parental notification before abortions are performed on minors is entirely appropriate and consistent with the immediate goals of the pro life movement Tobias

    refusal of the Republican establishment to talk about it much less do something about it Steve Forbes CPAC January 21 1999 Nothing is more important than teaching our children and reminding ourselves that a person s right to life is a gift of God not the State The State s job is to secure this right not deny it Our Founders understood that God has endowed every child with the first and most important freedom the freedom to be born And the Democratic Party of old understood this too It believed the great duty of government was to protect those in the twilight of life those in the shadows of life and those in the dawn of life What a sad and different time and party it is when a Democratic president can defend an unspeakable practice like partial birth abortion Yet with the stakes so high too many establishment Republicans are getting nervous again They think it s a losing cause They would have us walk away from it drop it leave it alone Why they demand to know can t we just forget it and move on like the other party Well because we are not the other party We are a party of principle And one day at a time one step at a time it is time to put abortion on the road to extinction in the United States of America Steve Forbes CPAC January 21 1999 Forbes Says Partial Birth Abortion His First Priority Washington October 1999 Republican presidential candidate Steve Forbes first act as president would be to ban partial birth abortions he told the Washington Times in an exclusive interview at his Alexandria VA campaign headquarters His vow reflects a sharp break from his first campaign four years ago during which he declared
