GOP four

In reading about "three high-profile races of national significance that feature African-Americans as the likely GOP candidate" ("GOP three," Feb. 4), I found one glaring omission: Bishop Keith Butler in Michigan, who is now running for the GOP nomination to unseat Democratic U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow.

No fair

How is it that we can know for sure that liberal court nominees are pro-abortion, but have to hope for the best when it comes to nominees who might have the slightest chance of being pro-life ("One-sided silence," Jan. 28)? No fair! The same thing is true for Congress. Looks like we need some folks with pro-life backbone who will support legislation, such as a Life at Conception Act, that cuts right to the issue of when life begins.

It is sad that Judge Alito did not declare his position on abortion at his confirmation hearings. Nevertheless, since the legislative branch represents the people and makes the laws we, the people, must follow, it is more important that a national debate on abortion take place on the floor of both houses of Congress.
-Joseph G. Mathis; Springfield, Va.

Correction

About 1.3 million abortions occur annually in the United States ("Pro-life thriller," Feb. 4, p. 10).
