Interest Group Ratings - Abortion

Over the next few weeks we will be posting Senator Hagel's ratings by various interest groups. These are based on his voting record in Congress and can give us a sense of where he stands on issues given how he has voted in the past.

Year - Rating by NARAL Pro-Choice
2000 - 0%
2001 - 0%
2002 - 0%
2003 - 0%
2004 - 0%
2005 - 0%

Years - Rating by National Right to Life Committee
1999-2000 - 100%
2001-2002 - 100%
2003-2004 - 82%

As you can see, Chuck Hagel has a strong Pro-Life voting record.

I'm sorry, I don't believe in restricting a woman's right to choose whether or not to give birth, and I don't believe a blastocyte should have the same rights as an 8 year old.

I won't be able to vote for Mr. Hegel

That voting record makes me want to support Hagel all the more. I do believe it is a woman's right to have a wort removed from her skin, but not to terminate a human life. Maria Mayer

I don't believe in restricting a woman's right to choose whether or not to give birth, so long as that decision is made before she takes the steps which make her pregnant.

Once she becomes pregnant - there is someone else whose rights must be protected.

They do have a right to life - in my book anyway.

At any rate - thanks for posting.

By the way, if it were not for his mistaken vote to authorize Bush to wage a war of aggression - I would be donating money to his cause.
