Evidently the Stassen article that was behind the assertion the number of abortions performed during Bush’s presidency have actually gone up was debated quite a bit this past political season. The NRLC picked apart Stassen’s sources and assertions.
Stassen responded and admitted some errors in his original data but stood firm on his conclusions.
Bottom line: we have four more years of Bush. Progressive pro-lifers will have ample data at that point to decide if Bush is really that bad when it comes to abortion. However, I suspect that we’ll be left in the same spot we were before: without a politician (on the left or right) who really reflects our beliefs.
