Remembering a couple of pro-life leaders from many years ago.

August 10, 2011

Pro-life just lost a great supporter a few days ago, but many younger people may not remember him.  He was Mark Hatfield, a Republican senator from Oregon, who, unlike many pro-lifers and many Republicans, was a liberal on social issues such as war and programs to fight poverty.  Another liberal pro-lifer from his time period was Democratic senator Tom Eagleton, whom presidential candidate George McGovern dumped as his running mate in 1972.  Interestingly, while Hatfield was senator his state’s other senator was a conservative pro-choicer named Rob Packwood.
