page 10, headline: Bush presses Syria to leave Lebanon soon.

The abortion story starts out with a nod to some sort of legislative activity in the US Senate but quickly confusing the reader it becomes another story whose focus is on the effect recent Republican electorial gains has on abortion issues. The Lebanon headline deals with a major speech given by president Bush at the National Defense University in Washington. In it he pressed Syria to leave Lebanon and generally promoted democratic change through out the region. The speech is universally understood to be a leading method to directing communicate US intentions to the world. Around here discussing abortion policy trumps peace in the Middle East.
