In Washington yesterday a group of pro-choice Republicans urged GOP Presidential candidate Bob Dole to drop his support for a constitutional amendment banning abortion from the party’s platform. Senator Olympia Snowe of Maine said that Dole should instead insist on language that urges continued debate on the issue but takes no position on legalized abortion. The GOP’s position on abortion is a major issue in the campaign, an issue some are sure will widen the gender gap in this election. Tanya Melich is a life long Republican activist and party official. She’s the author of The Republican War Against Women: an Insider’s Report from Behind the Lines. She spoke yesterday at a conference on Women, the economy and the elections in Washington D.C.
