Anti-Abortion Group Presses Perry For Clarity


Texas Gov. Rick Perry, saluting the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference in February, now is catching flak from conservatives over his abortion stance.(Chet Susslin)

"[Perry] has a proven record of being solidly pro-life. He supports a constitutional amendment that would need to be ratified by Congress and the states, so there is a state component to that also," said Perry spokesman Mark Miner. Dannenfelser also said that if Perry decides to run, the organization is looking forward to him signing its Pro-Life Presidential Leadership Pledge, and also hopes he will clarify his remarks. "His signature on our pledge will be a welcome addition. We are also anticipating his clarification that if elected he will continue his fight for life at the national level."
