Almost every day, I read your letters from the usual carousel of Bush bashers making their rounds and spinning the truth. However, in their zealous hatred of George Bush, never have any been so outlandish as Frank B. Durham who laid the blame for one million abortion deaths on George Bush and the Republican Congress. He claims they have done nothing to stop it.
After Republicans won a majority in both houses of Congress in 1994, they twice passed a ban on partial-birth abortion. This procedure involves grabbing a late-term baby by the legs with a pair of forceps, pulling him out of the womb up to his head, puncturing his skull with a pair of scissors and then sucking his brains out. By collapsing the baby's head it allows for removal with little physical discomfort to the mother. There is no word yet on how the baby feels during this procedure. Democrat President Clinton twice vetoed this ban.
