What did GWB or Reagan do about "baby killing"? National politics is less and less about this unsolveable problem, which belongs in the states.

"As we continue to work to overturn Roe v. Wade, we must also continue to lay the groundwork for a society in which abortion is not the accepted answer to unwanted pregnancy. Pro-life people have already taken heroic steps, often at great personal sacrifice, to provide for unwed mothers. I recently spoke about a young pregnant woman named Victoria, who said, "In this society we save whales, we save timber wolves and bald eagles and Coke bottles. Yet, everyone wanted me to throw away my baby." She has been helped by Save-a-Life, a group in Dallas, which provides a way for unwed mothers to preserve the human life within them when they might otherwise be tempted to resort to abortion. I think also of House of His Creation in Catesville, Pennsylvania, where a loving couple has taken in almost 200 young women in the past ten years. They have seen, as a fact of life, that the girls are not better off having abortions than saving their babies. I am also reminded of the remarkable Rossow family of Ellington, Connecticut, who have opened their hearts and their home to nine handicapped adopted and foster children." --Ronald Reagan
Owing to Giulianis support for abortion, NARAL head Kate Michelman anticipated sitting out a Hillary ClintonRudy Giuliani Senate match-up. She explained that NARAL wouldnt take sides in the race because both likely candidates are abortion-rights advocates.

But to get it to the states, you have to have a conservative Supreme Court. GWB appointed two good conservatives to the Court.
Fred Thompson would in all liklihood have the opportunity to appoint two more, as JP Stevens and RB Ginsburg are both in poor health and hanging on for dear life in hopes that a liberal will win the presidency next year.

-GW signed an a partial birth abortin law. He named two SC justices who are pro-life. -and I see someone already responded in Reagan's defense.
I NEVER vote for a abortion supported candidate.
