Fight abortion industry: priest tells Bush

.- The head of the world's largest pro-family organization is urging President George W. Bush to open the public debate and legal fight against the abortion industry.

"For 33 years, the unborn child has been denied the right-to-life and the American people have been denied their right to self governance. The public fight over abortion has been put off for too long and that must come to an end,” said Fr. Thomas Euteneuer, president of Human Life International (HLI).

"Mr. President, now is the time to stand and fight against the abortion industry and their water carriers in the United States Senate," he said.

Fr. Euteneuer also commended Harriet Miers' decision to remove herself from consideration for the Supreme Court. He noted the demands on the part of pro-abortion senators for a “consensus candidate” to replace Miers. “The Senate will attack any nominee with a history of respecting human dignity,” he said.

"Harriet Miers made the right decision. In choosing to withdraw she put the best interests of our country and the Supreme Court above her own self-interests," he stated. "We hope that the president will demonstrate an equal measure of courage and integrity by choosing a nominee who is unapologetically pro-life."

Fr. Euteneuer said more Catholics voted Republican in this last November's election than anytime since 1928 because “they believed the administration would appoint judges who respect the Constitution and the inalienable rights of every human life.”

He assured the president that Catholics “will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the president to defend any nominee who has a clear record of respecting the life of the unborn child."
