Some hints on Miers' abortion views

A woman who campaigned against Harriet Miers in 1989 remembers her as a decidedly pro-life candidate:

"She is on the extreme end of the anti-choice movement," Lorlee Bartos tells the Dallas Morning News in Tuesday's edition.

Bartos managed Miers' 1989 run for a seat on the Dallas City Council.

"I think Harriet's belief was pretty strongly felt," Bartos said Monday. "I suspect she is of the same cloth as the president."

Bartos told the paper that Miers revealed she had been "pro-choice in her youth" - but "a born-again profound experience" prompted a change of mind.

Beyond their 1989 exchange, Bartos said she has no other recollection about Miers' views on life issues.

That same year, however, Miers donated $150 to the Texans for Life Coalition.
