Harriet Miers Watch: Supports Prohibiting Abortions

The Associated Press has Miers supported ban on most abortions.

Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers pledged support in 1989 for a constitutional amendment banning abortions except when necessary to save the life of the mother, according to material given to the Senate on Tuesday.

“If Congress passes a Human Life Amendment to the Constitution that would prohibit abortion except when it was necessary to prevent the death of the mother, would you actively support its ratification by the Texas Legislature,” asked an April 1989 questionnaire sent out by the Texans United for Life group.

Miers checked “yes” to that question, and all of the group’s questions, including whether she would oppose the use of public moneys for abortions and whether she would use her influence to keep “pro-abortion” people off city health boards and commissions.

The survey was part of the material sent to the Senate with Miers’ Supreme Court questionnaire, according to two sources, one working with the White House and the other with the Senate, speaking on condition on anonymity.


Harriet Miers is PRO-LIFE.

What is the big revelation here?

It is how she votes on the issue when presented to her on the United States Supreme Court that merits attention.

And….. we will not know that until she issues an opinion as a justice.
