Calls on Women to Murder Children to Minimize Number of Offspring
Excerpts from this

WASHINGTON -- President Bush offered solidarity to tens of thousands of anti-abortion demonstrators Monday, who braved bitter cold to unite in what they call a "generational struggle."
"What unites us is our understanding that the essence of civilization is this: The strong have a duty to protect the week," Bush could be heard over loudspeakers at the 32nd March for Life.
Bush also said that he would continue "seeking common ground where possible and persuading increasing numbers of our fellow citizens of the rightness of our cause. This is the path of the culture of life that we seek for our country."
Members attending this year's event say the tide of public opinion has turned, and the Supreme Court will reverse its 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling and give states the power to establish abortion laws.
"I can stand here in front of you today and say that the end of abortion on demand has started. The end has started," Sen. Sam Brownback, a Kansas Republican, told protesters.
But abortion rights supporters say women who seek an abortion rarely have other options.
"Regardless of what people say in the polls, there
are very few people in this country who want us to go back to the days of
our grandmothers and our great grandmothers, where women had 10, 12, 15, 18
children," said National Organization of Women President Kim Gandy.
