WASHINGTON, December 20, 2002 ( – Pro-lifers may have to hold their noses as Senate Republicans choose a replacement next month for Sen. Trent Lott. Bill Frist, the Tennessee doctor who is reportedly both frontrunner and the White House favourite for Majority Leader, supported the confirmation of Bill Clinton’s militantly pro-abortion surgeon general, David Satcher. In addition, Frist is major a shareholder in a for-profit chain of medical clinics founded by his father and brother that conducts abortions.  According to Tennessee Right to Life’s Sherry Holden, Sen. Frist told the organization he is pro-life. “He said he’s against abortion, period-no exceptions, except rape and incest,” said Holden.  For critical coverage of Senator Frist’s potential leadership see: and
