.- A coalition of pro-life groups is planning a "pray-in" Nov. 10 at the Dirksen Senate Office building to ask that pro-abortion Senator Arlen Spector not be reappointed as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Spector has vowed to block any pro-life judicial appointments that President George W. Bush may make in his second term. The chairman of the judiciary has broad powers to block any presidential nominations to the bench.

The coalition opposing Spector includes national pro-life leaders Troy Newman of Operation Rescue, Rev. Pat Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition, Rev. Rob Schenck of Faith and Action, and Chris Slattery, an activist from New York City.

"We urge people to contact Senator Bill Frist and let him know that the President needs a loyal man at the helm of the Judiciary Committee, and that man is not Senator Spector," said Rev. Pat Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition.

The “Stop Spector Pro-life Pray-In” will be held at 12:30 p.m. at 109 Second St. NE, Washington, D.C., near the Supreme Court.

The group will then proceed to pray outside the Dirksen Senate Office Building with plans to pray inside the Office of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, who is responsible for committee appointments.
