Miers' responses to an abortion questionnaire

Document 1 | Document 2

In 1989, as a candidate for the Dallas City Council, current Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers indicated on a questionnaire that she would support a constitutional amendment banning abortions, except when necessary to save the life of the mother. The questionnaire, issued by the Texans United for Life Political Action Committee, was given to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday by the White House. Although the document is unsigned, it has been authenticated by the Bush administration.
