Pro-life leaders seek face-to-face meeting with Senator Clinton

.- Members of the Christian Defense Coalition presented themselves at Senator Hillary Clinton's office today to schedule a meeting to discuss the issues of abortion and abstinence. The coalition decided to take the Democratic senator up on the willingness she expressed in a recent press report in the New York Times to discuss and explore “common ground” on the issue of abortion.

Clinton is on record for saying that: "We can all recognize that abortion in many ways represents a sad, even tragic choice to many, many women.”

“It is in that spirit of open dialogue that the Christian Defense Coalition is asking for a face-to-face meeting with you, focusing on abortion and abstinence,” read the letter, written and submitted to Clinton’s office by the coalition today. 

The coalition has suggested a meeting in the next several weeks in Washington, D.C., that would include other national pro-life leaders and organizations.

“By including many voices within the pro-life community, it will give you the opportunity to hear a broad spectrum of thought on why abortion is the tragic taking of an innocent human life and why it is so damaging to women,” said the letter, signed by the coalition’s president, Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney.

The coalition has proposed that the meeting touch on abstinence education and legislation to obtain funding to study the emotional, psychological and physical impacts of abortion on women.

“It is truly our hope that you were sincere in your desire to reach out to people of faith and the pro-life community,” stated the letter. “It would be very disappointing and troubling to discover your recent statements were motivated only by political posturing.”
