Giuliani, Romney and McCain earlier this week at a debate sponsored by Fox News Channel and the Republican Party of Florida said they disapproved of the decision by Congress in 2005 to become involved in the Terry Schiavo case, an indication of a "sharp departure from past Republican strategy" on end-of-life care for patients, the Boston Globe reports. According to Giuliani, the decision on care for Schiavo should have remained with the family. Romney said that the "decision of Congress to get involved was a mistake," and McCain said that Congress "acted too hastily." Huckabee said, "I wasn't sure how the federal government had a role in all that" (Kranish, Boston Globe, 10/25).
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Rudy Giuliani continues to drop in national and state polls following a seminal survey issued just two weeks ago by the Des Moines Register. That poll was the first to show Giuliani's campaign hurting as more Republicans recognize his pro-abortion view and newer polls show his numbers continuing to drop.
