Revision as of 23:18, 26 December 2013
William F. Buckley was a conservative author, publisher, and commentator on public television who had a long-running show entitled "Firing Line." He rarely spoke about family-type social issues. His magazine, National Review, never even addressed the Equal Rights Amendment, despite being the biggest political issue of the 1970s, with opposition to it forming the cornerstone of the future conservative movement.
Initially, in 1966, he advocated against pro-life legislation, insisting that Catholics like himself could not impose their views on non-Catholics.<ref>http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/archive//ldn/2008/feb/08022904</ref> He changed his view and later became critical of pro-choice Catholics.
