    Rena, I coincidentally just saw this while searching other items. I've also seen some postings similar on a couple of the many many diaries today.

    It sounded to me originally like she did not want the ABA to take a formal stand, or that she was not pro-choice. But, it could be interpreted like some others have:

    Conservative journalist Tim Carney: "In 1993, after the ABA had voted to adopt a pro-choice stance, the State Bar of Texas, under Miers' leadership, fought to have the issue put to a vote of the full ABA membership. She said: 'If we were going to take a position on this divisive issue, the members should have been able to vote.' In favor of democracy on the issue of abortion? Let's hope she carries that through."
