BUSH: I will veto pro-abortion legislation

WASHINGTON, May 4, 2007 ( - "I believe it is the most basic duty of Government to guard the innocent. With that in mind, I will veto any legislation that weakens current Federal policies and laws on abortion, or that encourages the destruction of human life at any stage." So said President Bush yesterday in identical letters sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nv.).


155 members of the House of Representatives and 34 members of the U.S. Senate, more than enough to sustain a Presidential veto, have already sent the President letters (dated March 30 and February 1, respectively), urging the President to veto bills that weaken existing pro-life policies, and indicating that they will vote to sustain such vetoes.


"Our Nation was founded on the belief that every human being has rights, dignity, and matchless value," wrote Bush. "Every child should be welcomed into life and protected in law."


Kudos to President Bush. For all his flaws, he at least stems the tide of pro-abortion legislation.

I hope American pro-lifers make every effort to get a pro-lifer on the Republican ticket. Do not sell your votes cheap to more "known" candidates. If the candidate you are supporting does not support fetal rights, he will not act like he supports it. You did not come all this way to finally elect a pro-abort.
