Washington DC – October 27, 2005 – Culture of Life Foundation President Austin Ruse said today, “We praise the courage of Harriet Miers in her decision to withdraw her name from consideration for the US Supreme Court. We praise President Bush for what must have been a very difficult decision in accepting Ms. Miers’ withdrawal.”
“We eagerly await the President’s next nominee to the Supreme Court. We fully expect the President to choose a nominee who is a judicial conservative, one who will strictly interpret the Constitution. We encourage the President to choose a nominee with a strong paper trail.
“The very potent conservative coalition --- that worked so well during the Roberts nomination process --- sadly was shattered in recent weeks. We have no doubt this powerful coalition with gather again for the President’s next nominee.”
“We look forward to supporting Ms. Miers in her continuing duties as White House Counsel.”
