Pro-Abortion Group Analyzes President Bush's Pro-Life Judicial Picks
Information for those who think President Bush only pays lip service to pro-lifers read on.
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A leading abortion advocacy group has analyzed the judicial selections President Bush made during his first term and found that virtually all of them are pro-life. According to staff members at NARAL, only two of the more than 200 people Bush has nominated to federal judicial positions show any hint of supporting legal abortion. Many of the 35 judges Bush has appointed to federal appeals courts have clear pro-life views, been involved with pro-life organizations or even vocally advocated overturning the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case that legalized abortion. "Of course Bush has a litmus test. He's just not playing straight with the American people," said David Seldin, a spokesman for NARAL, told Newsday. "The proof is in the pudding." The research shows the huge divide between Bush, who has promised to appoint judges who will more strictly interpret the Constitution, with Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry, who says he will not appoint any judges who oppose the Roe decision.
