Texas Pro-Choice Leader Questions Bush's 'Moderation' on Abortion
DALLAS - June 7 - News Advisory:

The Executive Director of the Texas Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League (TARAL) will be in Dallas Monday afternoon to highlight Governor George W. Bush's extensive anti-choice record as Governor. While Bush will herald the parental notification bill that he's scheduled to sign Monday, during his five years in office he has signed numerous measures to restrict access to abortion, including seven measures in 1999 that were slipped into various pieces of legislation with little debate or notice. Bush's actions in Austin contradict his rhetoric on the presidential campaign trail, where he claims he's not a threat to the freedom to choose. Kae McLaughlin, TARAL executive director, will be available for interviews at the Dallas Hyatt Regency (Reunion Square) prior to the bill signing ceremony. She will be near the escalator on the same floor as the ballroom.
