FORBES PLEDGES LEGALIZED ABORTION "GOING TO GO"

          DES MOINES, Iowa (CWNews.com) - Republican president candidate Steve Forbes said on Tuesday that the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion "is going to go" as public opinion shifts, and said that if elected he will appoint pro-life judges.

          Forbes, running his second presidential campaign, said he would choose judges, including Supreme Court justices, based on their views regarding "adhering to the Constitution, including the belief in the sanctity of life." Forbes also said public opinion is shifting away from legalized abortion, despite media and political pundits saying otherwise. "There is growing support for restrictions," said Forbes, who conceded "many Americans don't agree with the ultimate goal yet."

          He added, "If you have made a wrong constitutional decision you shouldn't let it stand. Just because bad law has been around for a while, you shouldn't leave it."
