WASHINGTON (BP)--Richard Land has high regard for former President Ronald Reagan, but he believes President George W. Bush will go down as the top pro-life president in recent history.

"Reagan was unabashedly pro-life, made some beautiful speeches, supported the [Republican National Convention's pro-life] platform plank change in 1980 and got elected as a pro-life president.

This has been the most pro-life administration since Roe v. Wade." Read More
