Thompson opposed amendment to protect the Sanctity of Human Life

Documents The Tennessean located in Thompson’s Senate archive at the University of Tennessee show:

• On a 1996 Christian Coalition survey, he checked “opposed” to an amendment to the U.S. Constitution “protecting the sanctity of human life.”

• He included a handwritten clarification: “I do not believe abortion should be criminalized. This battle will be won in the hearts and souls of the American people.”

• In 1996, asked by the Memphis group FLARE (Family, Life, America, Responsible Education Under God Inc.) if human life begins at conception, Thompson circled “N/A.”

Those answers could complicate Thompson’s standing with the Republican Party right wing, which has been bolstered by his seemingly reliable pro-life voting record.

    I note that the names of the persons responsible for this web site are not prominently displayed. Why not?

    Which Republican candidate, that has even a remote chance of winning the nomination, would you think is more conservative than Fred Thompson?

    Why?

    Being anti-something is one thing, being for something is another. Help us all out.
