Is Bush Really Pro-Life ?

Here's a story worth following up on. Glenn Stassan of Fuller Theological Seminary > and an investigative reporter say that the number of abortions have gone up under President Bush.

Stassen and Kane argue that Bush's economic and social policies--fewer jobs, a growing number of women without insurance, among others--have contributed to the rise.

What does this tell us? Economic policy and abortion are not separate issues; they form one moral imperative. Rhetoric is hollow, mere tinkling brass, without health care, insurance, jobs, child care and a living wage. Pro-life in deed, not merely in word, means we need a president who will do something about jobs, health insurance and support for mothers.
