New Development on Harriet Miers

ve8QAd   |   October 18, 2005

Here’’s a new development in the confirmation process of Harriet Miers to the US Supreme Court.

Twelve boxes of documents have been given to the Senate Judiciary Committee. One of those documents was a 1989 questionnaire from Texans for Life to Harriet Miers. She was running for the Dallas City Council. One of the questions asked, “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?” Miss Miers checked “yes” to that question, as well as the one asking if she would oppose the use of tax dollars to fund abortion. Miss Miers won that Council race and served for two years. She didn’t run for reelection because restructuring of the Council eliminated her at-large seat.

This latest development may provide comfort to pro-lifers who question her pro-life credentials or outright oppose her. This new turn of event is far from a guarantee that as a Justice of the Supreme Court she would vote to correct Roe. However, it is solid evidence of her position on abortion. Hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee are likely to begin the week of November 7.

I’’ll keep you posted as this situation develops.
