American Life League president Judie Brown said many pro-life groups are “gleefully” declaring victory following President George W. Bush's re-election, but she does not share in their enthusiasm.
“It is true that Mr. Bush defeated one of the most solidly pro-abortion candidates to ever seek the White House. However, the Bush administration's first term has been less than sterling in terms of total commitment to the pro-life effort,” she said.
Brown pointed out that in the last presidencies in recent memory, whether Republican or Democrat, between 4 and 5 million babies were aborted, and countless others died as the result of chemical abortions and in the science lab.
“The killing continued unabated during Mr. Bush's first term,” she said, “and indications are that abortion on demand will remain decriminalized during the coming four years.
