It’s not as pathetic as Michael Jackson’s spiral, but, Bill Clinton is putting on a good show. He claims that he has done more than anyone to reduce abortion. Even, got into an argument about it. Good for him – stand up for what you believe.
But, let’s set the record straight. First, the National Health Care that Bill proposed would have nationalized abortion funding. Second, Bill ran for President under the slogan, “Safe, Legal, and Rare.” Someone once asked if it is safe and legal, why should it be rare? I’m sure Bill has an answer. Third, from Clinton’s own book, “I thought then [in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision] and still believe that the Court reached the right conclusion.”
Here’s the problem with Bill’s record. From Exodus . . .
“If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,”
Punished for causing a miscarriage. Surely, God felt that life began in the womb.
Bill is a master at turning an argument. He will force the most absurd position on his opponent and make observers believe it is the position of the opponent. It is our job to remind each other of the real positions our ‘leaders’ hold.
Don’t let Bill or Hillary or Barack dilute their real positions on abortion. More important than borders . . . More important than taxes . . . More important than radical Islamic terrorism . . . this presidential election is about Supreme Court nominations. And we will have to unite to ensure the strongest possible candidate is elected to protect the lives of the innocents.
That’s why I stand with Mike Huckabee.
