New York Times On Washington March

New York Times On Washington March

Full story here, now, it’s quotation and comment time again…

Karen Hughes, an adviser to President Bush, appeared on CNN today to provide a counterpoint to the anti-Bush sentiment on the Mall. She praised the president on his “very strong record for women,” saying he has employed more women in senior-level staff positions than any other presidential administration.

But you know if you’ve read Bushwomen, those women in senior-staff positions haven’t done much to support their sex.

She also said that abortion-rights activists were moving against what she said was popular momentum, particularly since the terrorist attacks of 2001, in favor of anti-abortion policies.

“I think that after September 11, the American people are valuing life more and we need policies to value the dignity and worth of every life,” she said.”

You heard it here first, folks–if you support the right of a woman to chose to have an abortion, you’re no better than the terrorists.
