#99 - Ronald Reagan Estimate: $2,000+

Weighing in on an anti-abortion measure, “one of the most important issues of our time”

TLS as president signed "Ron," one page, 7 x 10.5, White House letterhead, September 7, 1982. Letter to Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker. In full: "This is just a note to express my profound appreciation for your taking the lead in filing the cloture petition on Senator Helms' anti-abortion amendment to the debt ceiling bill. As you know, this is a subject about which I feel very deeply. You are providing the Senate an opportunity to stand up and be counted on what I think is one of the most important issues of our time. I am expending my efforts to support the cloture petition and the passage of the substantive amendment. I would like to see our fellow Republicans in the Senate help us to close off debate so that we can deal with this issue speedily and efficiently. I should also make it clear my support for the Helms anti-abortion amendment does not preclude my continuing support for other moves by the Congress to curb abortions." In fine condition. Reagan's administration was silent on the issue of abortion until 1982, when Jesse Helms introduced an amendment to a debt ceiling bill that would ban federal funding and encourage challenges against Roe v. Wade. The bill was filibustered and the result of the vote for cloture was unsuccessful, and the measure was not passed once it did come to a vote.
