.- Pro-life groups are not wasting any time. Just hours after President George W. Bush was re-elected to the White House, several pro-life organizations called on Bush to take immediate action in legislating against abortion and establishing a culture of life.
Pollsters have stated that the moral and faith-based vote was the deciding factor in the election.
âThe moral conservative and religious voter turned out in droves and has proven to be the backbone of the Republican Party,â said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue. âToday, the President owes the pro-life movement a huge debt.â
Operation Rescue spent the last three weeks prior to the election in the critical states of Ohio and Pennsylvania, exposing Kerryâs support for abortion. Newman believes that effort helped propel Bush to victory in the election-deciding state of Ohio.
Newman said American voters have given Bush the mandate to end abortion. He urges Bush to appoint pro-life federal judges, and eventually Supreme Court Justices who will strike down Roe v. Wade.
