Re: LDS Senator's Dilemma Reveals How Science is Making Abortion More Difficult Issue

Dear Editor:

Michael Nielsen wrote:

Abortion has played an important role in previous Republican conventions, but this year George W. Bush persuaded party members to leave their antiabortion feelings out of the party platform.

Grampa Bill comments:

It is my understanding that the GOP did retain a strong antiabortion plank in their platform. However, you are correct that the Right To Life did not occupy any podium time.

As one who has served on the platform committee for the state convention, I can tell you that the platform is meaningless in any event. It has no force of law and little power of persuasion. The results will depend on the winners of national office and the bills they author, pass, and sign. Such bills are completely independent of the platform on which the candidates run.

...nevertheless, Wicked Bill Clinton must be impeached... again... and the Senate must convict this time.

Love y'all,
Grampa Bill in Savannah
