Reid On Life

Harry Reid earned a 55-percent rating from the National Right to Life Committee. That doesn’t make him the Democrat’s most pro-life senator–John Breaux and Ben Nelson earned especially high marks from the NRLC–but it does make him much more pro-life than most of his Democratic colleagues. Specter’s NRLC rating, by the way, is 64 percent. In the 105th, 106th, and 107th Congresses, Reid actually earned a higher pro-life rating than Specter. Imagine that: the Democrats’ minority leader is more consistently pro-life than the Republican who is next in line to chair the Judiciary Committee.
