DEFENSE OF LIFE A KEY ISSUE IN U.S. ELECTORAL CAMPAIGN
March for Life in Washington on 27th Anniversary of Legalization of Abortion

    WASHINGTON, JAN 24 (ZENIT).- President Bill Clinton came out to hear the demonstrators at this year's March for Life in Washington, D.C. this year. The march recalls the 27th anniversary of the "Roe v. Wade" decision of the Supreme Court, which made abortion a "Constitutional right" for Americans.

    President Clinton heard speeches expressing the claims of those defending the life of the unborn. Yesterday, protestors carrying posters stood outside the Methodist Church where the President worships on Sundays, and called for an end to the killing of the innocent.

    Since the president appoints Supreme Court Justices, and the appointments are for life or until retirement, this year's March for Life has a special importance. Several members of the Court are getting old, and it is suspected that the next president will appoint at least three justices. This could easily change the balance of the court in either direction.

    All the Republican candidates have stated their opposition to abortion. Their victory would help legal initiatives to limit or abolish this practice. The Democrats, however, support abortion or at least the "personal choice" of women to abort; their victory would consolidate the existing situation. ZE00012413
