Dallas, TX (LifeNews.com) — Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers made only one bid for elected office and was successful in being elected to the Dallas city council. Campaign managers often get one of the most unvarnished views of a candidate and the woman who helped Miers says the nominee is firmly pro-life.
Lorlee Bartos, an abortion advocate who managed Miers’ campaign for Dallas City Council in 1989, told the Dallas Morning News that Miers "is on the extreme end of the anti-choice movement."
"I think Harriet’s belief was pretty strongly felt," Bartos said Monday. "I suspect she is of the same cloth as the president."
Bartos indicated she and Miers had just one conversation about abortion during the campaign and Miers told her she favored abortion when she was younger but changed her views after a "born-again, profound experience" that drew her to Christianity.
