Abortion Pickets Urge Clinton To Ok Limits

Compiled From Wire Services

About 500 abortion opponents, led by two Roman Catholic cardinals, demonstrated in front of the White House on Monday night to urge President Clinton to sign a bill outlawing some late-term abortions.

Participants marched back and forth in front of the mansion in a driving rain, holding candles and carrying signs that read “President Clinton, Sign the Partial Abortion Bill” and “President Clinton, You Can Stop This.”

Washington’s Cardinal James Hickey and Boston’s Cardinal Bernard Law attended the vigil.
