|House Republican Whip Tom Delay (R-Tx.) Leads opposition to restriction||Rep. Scotty Baesler (D-Ky.) Pushes restrictions on free speech about politicians|
(May 7) - - Within the next few weeks, the House of Representatives will
conduct a wide-open floor debate over what restrictions should be placed
on your right to free speech about politicians - - the issue referred to
in the press as "campaign finance reform" legislation.
The House could begin the debate as early as the week of May 18, or the floor fight might not begin until after Memorial Day. Either way, a vote on final passage of so-called campaign reform legislation, as amended by the House, will not occur until sometime in June.
From the President

On January 23, 1973, I "manned" a right-to-life information booth in the student union building of West Virginia University - - quite unaware that the horrendous Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions had just been announced. A student came up to me and announced, "You people can go home now. It's all over for you. The Supreme Court just made abortion legal." I didn't "go home" on January 23, 1973, nor did thousands of other pro-lifers.

No, we have never given up, and we never will until the children are safe. But we have learned that to stay effective as pro- lifers we have to work at staying informed and seek inspiration from other pro-lifers. Nothing cheers you up more than experiencing the fellowship of other committed pro-lifers. And nobody informs you more than a thoughtful right-to-life "pro" who lays out what works and what doesn't.
