Senator Clinton Snubs Dialogue with Pro-Life Groups
WASHINGTON, April 25 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Senator Clinton snubbed dialogue with pro-life groups after making statements she was interested in finding common ground and opening a dialogue with those who oppose abortion, according to the Christian Defense Coalition.
Senator Clinton declined to meet with a coalition of pro-life organizations after the groups tried for two months to secure a face to face meeting with the Senator.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition and one of the leaders in attempting to secure a meeting, comments, "We are profoundly disappointed that Senator Clinton has refused to sit down and dialogue with a broad coalition of voices within the pro-life community after suggesting she wanted to reach out to us. It now seems that the statements Senator Clinton made, concerning finding common ground on abortion, were politically motivated and not sincere. These comments should now be viewed as an attempt to reinvent herself and appear less radical on the issue of abortion in light of the 2008 race for the White House. I think it is critical that the American public focus more on what Senator Clinton does concerning abortion, rather than her rhetoric, as we move closer to the presidential campaign season."
The groups will have a news conference on Tuesday, April 26, at 12 p.m., to discuss these issues. The location will be outside of the Russell Office Building at the corner of 1st St. and Constitution Ave. NE, Washington, D.C.
Nobody really believed she meant that, did they?
