    Douglas Johnson, legislative director of the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), says Barack Obama is committed to a strategy of sweeping changes in abortion policies. "For example, he is dedicated to repealing the Hyde Amendment, which is the law that prohibits federal funding of abortions and which has saved the lives of more than one million Americans since it was first enacted," he explains.

    Obama, Johnson notes, has also pledged to sign the Freedom of Choice Act, "which is a proposed federal law that would invalidate and nullify hundreds of pro-life laws across the country, including parental notification laws and which would make partial-birth abortion legal again."

    LE,
    Question for you. Do you think those of us who are supporting third party candidates are being too harsh on the Republicans on abortion, them having done all that could be done?

    Or do you think they use abortion for political purposes?

    There is no evidence that the Repubs use abortion as you say.

    The evidence is in the inaction.
