Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Actor Martin Sheen has backed out of being listed as an endorser for the pro-abortion march sponsored by leading abortion advocacy groups. Whether the listing of him as a sponsor was accidental or if Sheen didn’t know the march’s purpose is to support abortion is still a question.
That Sheen, who plays a fictitious president on the hit NBC drama “West Wing,” was listed as a sponsor of the pro-abortion march was a surprise. Though he holds liberal views on other political issues, Sheen is a longtime pro-life supporter.
In 2001, Sheen was listed by Feminists for Life, a pro-woman group, as a “Remarkable Pro-Life Man,” along with actor Ben Stein, Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ), and columnist George Will. Sheen’s wife Janet signed off on the article.
Sheen has also been a longtime supporter of the Seamless Garment Network, a pro-life group that also opposes war, poverty, abortion, racism, and capital punishment.
Calls from LifeNews.com to Glennis Liberty, Sheen’s publicist, were not returned by press time.
However, Serrin Foster, the president of Feminists for Life, suspects that Sheen or a representative may have signed up to be a sponsor of the march because of other political issues, not realizing that its main thrust is promoting abortion.
Well I guess that is possible. The “March for Women’s Lives” doesn’t realy sound like what it really is the “March to continue killing children in the womb.”
