New York, NY (LifeNews.com) -- Democratic senator Zell Miller is the featured keynote speaker at the third night of the Republican Party convention. His speech concludes a remarkable change from a pro-abortion governor who nominated abortion advocate Bill Clinton for president to a pro-life senator who supports pro-life President George W. Bush.

Miller writes in his book, "A National Party No More," that he begin to change his mind on abortion with the birth of his great grandchildren.

"I believe the thinking of many Americans is changing on this subject," he writes.

"New science and technology can now show the heart of the unborn baby beating in the mother's womb," Miller says. "I saw it on the front page of Newsweek, no less."

The Georgia lawmakers says he remembers his twenty-year old grandson carrying a sonogram of his "yet unborn, but so alive daughter."

"It gave new meaning to the old Roberta Flack song 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,'" Miller explains.

"I began to seriously wrestle with where I was on the real question," he writes. "I began to pray earnestly for God's guidance."
