In the interview Steele, then the GOP candidate for Maryland Senate, said he believed the courts had already ruled on Roe v. Wade and that abortion matters should be determined state-by-state. He refrained from saying Roe v. Wade should be overturned.
This is a legitimate debate and Steele, who has repeatedly contended that he is pro-life, should clarify these remarks in the 2006 interview. For now, it might be helpful for those debating the issue to look at this mailer the National Right to Life submitted on his behalf during his Senate race. It's a ringing endorsement for him.
