Why Miers Must Move Forward
Now they have that battle in Harriet Miers.
John Fund, writing in Opinion Journal, details notes of an Oct. 3 conference call of Christian leaders, including Dobson and Bowers, in which Justice Nathan Hecht and Judge Ed Kinkeade, both personal friends of Miers, reportedly said she would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. Both now say they don't recall making that statement, but several on the call confirm it, according to the usually reliable Fund.
Yes, it's them not Miers saying it, but this is as close as we've gotten to a charade-stopper. The blood-money crowd led by Schumer and Feinstein will have a bona fide Roe opponent before them; let them boldy tout their support of millions of dead babies and of partial birth abortion; let the media report the amount of money they've received from NARAL and Planned Parenthood.
Let the discussion of Roe finally focus on the legal, not the political.
No matter what happens to the Miers nomination in the process, it will be good for America to get past the charade and bring the issue into the open.
