President Bush Names Pro-Life Woman to Key State Department Post

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- With Congress out of session and abortion advocates in the Senate no longer able to hold it up, President Bush moved on the nomination of Ellen Sauerbrey to a top State Department position. Sauerbrey was one of a handful of people Bush placed through recess appointments Wednesday. Sauerbrey, a pro-life former Maryland state lawmaker and gubernatorial candidate, was named to be the assistant secretary of state for population. Senate abortion advocates held up the nomination of Sauerbrey, who was a former UN women's representative, because of her position against abortion. The Senate had planned a committee vote on Sauerbrey in October, but pro-abortion California Democrat Barbara Boxer asked the committee to wait and put a hold on her nomination. Jeanne Head of the National Right to Life Committee, and one of the top pro-life lobbyists as the United Nations, told LifeNews.com she applauded the president's appointment of Sauerbrey. "She has effectively and compassionately carried out [Bush's pro-life] policy as Ambassador to the Commission on the Status of Women at the UN," Head explained. "She is well thought of and very much respected in the diplomatic community at the UN and throughout the world." Read the complete story.

I hope the pro-life community works to ban pesticide testing on pregnant women. This is a disgrace:

Today, Senator Barbara Boxer, Rep. Henry A. Waxman, and Rep. Hilda L. Solis criticize a Bush Administration plan to promote pesticide experimentation upon humans. The plan, contained in a final draft rule, was leaked to the legislators by a concerned Administration official who requested that the original copy of the plan not be duplicated in its entirety and widely distributed out of concern for anonymity. According to the EPA's communications plan, the Administration will officially announce the pesticide experimentation plan later this week as a final regulation.

In August 2005, Congress enacted a moratorium upon EPA using human pesticide experiments until strict ethical standards were established. Senator Boxer championed the moratorium in the U.S. Senate. Representative Solis pushed the moratorium through the U.S. House of Representatives.

"The Administration plan is inconsistent with the law passed by Congress with bipartisan support. The loopholes which allow continued testing on pregnant women, infants and children are contrary to law and widely accepted ethical guidelines, including the Nuremberg code. The fact that EPA allows pesticide testing of any kind on the most vulnerable, including abused and neglected children, is simply astonishing," said Senator Boxer.

"The regulation is an open invitation to test pesticides on humans, which is the exact opposite of what Congress intended," said Rep. Waxman. "The Administration predicts that over 30 pesticide experiments will be submitted to EPA each year under the new rule. That's an enormous step in the wrong direction."

"This is yet another example of the Bush Administration choosing to ignore the letter of the law and going its own way. Congress passed legislation to curb the practice of unethical pesticide testing on humans, but with this rule the Bush Administration is authorizing systematic testing of pesticides on humans which not only fails to meet its congressional mandate but which will increase the number of unethical studies," said Congresswoman Solis. "Americans should be concerned about just how far the Bush Administration will go to allow pesticide testing on pregnant women and children and, the ease at which it chooses to ignore the law. The Bush Administration must revise this rule to meet its Congressional mandate and give Americans a policy which is moral, ethical, and safe."
