WASHINGTON (CNN) - The National Right to Life Committee endorsed former Senator Fred Thompson, R-Tennesssee, in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday. Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash reports on how the endorsement may help Thompson's White House bid and what Thompson may still need to do even with the help of the prominent pro-life group.

Isn't this the hundredth time CNN is posting this? I mean....
I think if I had been born during a Thompson or Clinton administration, I would rather I had been aborted.
Finally, CNN will use the appropriate terms for those for and against abortion. Prior to this point, all that I have seen is "anti-abortion." It is nice to see that CNN is attempting to show a little less bias in its reporting. "Pro-Life" vs "Pro-Choice," not "Anti-Abortion" vs "Pro-Choice."
The endorsement by the National Right to Life Committee will only inspire those who haven't gotten past this issue yet. The fact is that Roe vs. Wade will never be repealed. We've had "pro-life" Republicans in the White House since, and Roe vs Wade still stands. And, like it or not, that is just fine with most Americans.
in my opinion i believe in god and all that holy I believe fred thompson is not pro-life he Endorsed g.w.bush war killing thousand of young americans what's the difference between starting at birth or at 18 years old thank about it pro-life groups.
These single issue voters seldom take the big picture – they ignore "their candidate's" policies on the economy, gas prices, mortgage crises, health care, war, terrorism, jobs or anything that really matters to the rest of us working people.
Adoption? No, I'm too busy on the picket line to take on any new children. Foster children? Not my problem.
Pro-life people love children in the abstract but after these children are born, they could care less what kind of lives these children will have... they are too busy being "holier than thou" and telling the rest of us how to live our lives!
bined with their "holier than thou" meddling in other people's lives make them very scarey.
A "boost" for Thompson?
An endorsement from this notorious pro_FETAL-life group will be the kiss of death.
America is wising up to the "Love 'em until they're born" crowd of control freaks.
It isn't "pro-life". It's pro-fetal-life, and most of you extremist christians could give a crap about anyone already born.
