And isn't it nice that she had zip/nada/zilch influence on public policy compared to her pro-life husband, who acted in consonance with the will of a pro-life citizenry.
[April 2010] "Former President George W. Bush was the highlight of the evening for more than 4,000 people in Indianapolis last night as he shared a pro-life talk with people supporting the Life Centers, a network of pregnancy centers in the Indianapolis area.
[Life Centers President Brian] Boone credited Bush with compiling a stellar pro-life record and pointed out that he signed the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, Unborn Victims of Violence Act and Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.
"Bush’s pro-life policies over eight years included the appointment of two pro-life Supreme Court Justices, an executive order barring federal funds to be used for abortion-related projects abroad, and a rule protecting federally funded health employees from taking part in abortion-related activities or other practices that conflicted with their religious views," he said.

Good for Mrs. Bush - too bad she did not speak up louder while her husband was in office.
