(From the Washington Post)
â€œOne evening in the 1980s, several years after Harriet Miers dedicated her life to Jesus Christ, she attended a lecture at her Dallas evangelical church with Nathan Hecht, a colleague at her law firm and her on-again, off-again boyfriend. The speaker was Paul Brand, a surgeon and the author of â€˜Fearfully and Wonderfully Made,â€™ a best-selling exploration of God and the human body.
â€œWhen the lecture was over, Miers said words Hecht had never heard from her before. â€˜I’m convinced that life begins at conception,â€™ Hecht recalled her saying. According to Hecht, now a Texas Supreme Court justice, Miers has believed ever since that abortion is â€˜taking a life.â€™â€
