Is Harriet Miers Pro-Life?

Does the Pope poop in the woods? At least a piece in the Salon suggests that she is:

While everyone else is reading tea leaves about Harriet Miers, a woman named Lorlee Bartos says she doesn't have to. Bartos ran Miers' first and only political campaign back in 1989, and she tells the Dallas Morning News that she knows firsthand about Miers' political views.

"She is on the extreme end of the anti-choice movement," Bartos says of her former client. "I think Harriet's belief was pretty strongly felt. I suspect she is of the same cloth as the president."

If this is true Miers will be no O'Connor. So why are the radical clerics all up in arms about her? Though it still is funny that pro-life-like-Bush would mean executing lots and lots of people in Texas.
