Senator Landrieu Voted Yes On Cloture
May 10, 2005; Catholic News Service:
In a 2001 fund-raising letter to supporters, Sen. Landrieu said she was "proud that both the National Abortion Rights Action League and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America have acknowledged my support of reproductive choice with current 'scorecard' ratings of 80 percent and 90 percent, respectively."
But earlier this year at the "Proudly Pro-Life" dinner honoring pro-life causes in the Archdiocese of New Orleans, pro-life advocate and attorney Sharon Ryan Rodi said she hoped Sen. Landrieu was modifying some of her previous positions, noting "Mary Landrieu is moving ever so slightly to our side."
