“And, no, I don’t think the culture has changed to the extent that the American people or the Congress would totally ban abortions.”
Pres. George W. Bush – 10/28/2003
Q: Do you support the ban on partial-birth abortions recently signed into law?
A: “I don’t support the President’s law because it doesn’t allow the exception for situations where the health of the woman is at risk. I believe this is a dangerous effort to undermine a woman’s right to choose, which is a constitutional amendment I will always fight to protect. ”
Sen. John F. Kerry – 11/7/2003
