Wendy Long on Abortion
Wendy Long's pro-life activism began on Capitol Hill where she served as press secretary for pro-life Senators Gordon Humphrey (R-NH) and Bill Armstrong (R-CO). Long put her congressional work on hold to join Americans United for Life and was inspired to obtain a law degree to better defend pro-life principles. She studied at Northwestern University School of Law under the direction of pro-life legal scholar, the late Professor Victor G. Rosenblum.
"She supports Obama's enforcement of their view on Catholic institutions and all religious institutions and people of conscience who would have a problem with it. I support permitting churches and people of conscience not to abrogate their conscience. I would be willing to stand up for that and vote for the Blunt Amendment and not, in any way, support what the president is doing. She is angry and annoyed with the president for considering any kind of compromise, even though it wasn't any compromise, it was just completely cosmetic. She was just annoyed that he would even consider backing off in any way," Long continued.
