Democratic Candidates & Abortion

NPR National Political Correspondent Mara Liasson reports Democratic presidential hopefuls blasted the Bush administration on its abortion rights record at an event in Washington, D.C., last night. Abortion may be a crucial campaign issue in 2004, because President Bush may have the chance to appoint Supreme Court justices who could overturn Roe v. Wade.
