PHILLIPS ASKS JUDICIARY COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN ARLEN SPECTER TO CORRECT HIS STATEMENT

Howard Phillips, Chairman of The Conservative Caucus, who led pro-life opposition to the Senate confirmation of Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor in 1981 and David Souter in 1990 has released the following statement:

"In his opening statement at the Judiciary Committee hearings concerning the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court of the United States, Committee Chairman Arlen Specter (R-Penn.) has brazenly misrepresented the facts concerning preconfirmation positions on abortion advocated by Sandra Day O’Connor and David Souter.

"As an Arizona State Senator, O’Connor, on more than one occasion, took a pro-abortion stance. Moreover, she was a strong supporter of Planned Parenthood", Phillips stated.

"David Souter, as the Trustee of two New Hampshire hospitals, Concord Memorial and Dartmouth Hitchcock, helped change the policies of those hospitals from zero abortion to convenience abortion.

"Senator Specter should correct the record and acknowledge that he misrepresented the facts in his opening statement concerning Judge Alito."

The Conservative Caucus, founded in 1974, is a non-partisan, grass-roots public policy action organization.
