Thompson Denies Lobbying For Abortion Group

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Fred Thompson was hired as a lobbyist in 1991 for an abortion rights group. Thompson denies that any such lobbying took place and his spokesperson stated that at most Thompson may have consulted with another lawyer in the firm about the group's lobbying needs. John Sununu also denies that Thompson lobbied the Bush White House to relax the restriction on the "gag rule".

We will see more of these types of claims as Fred nears, and enters, the presidential race. He must look appealing to conservative Christians in order to win the republican nomination, and conservative Christians are staunchly pro-life. Fred's opponents will attempt to portray him as less than completely pro-life so that conservative Christians will be divided in their support for him. If he runs (and it looks more likely every day), then Thompson must solidify the conservative Christian base behind him. Whichever of the republican candidates can garner the support of conservative Christians will win the nomination, and hopefully the White House.

Also, this week the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing Island Inferno by Chuck Holton. I hope you get a chance to pick up a copy of this book.
