Kerry’s scrambling

Kerry’s scrambling

John Kerry’s looking more desparate by the day. I just got an email from some PR firm with a linked article (I won’t bother giving free publicity to the outright load of baloney it is) that claims that Kerry is really pro-life and in 1997 actually proposed a bill to ban on all abortions in the third trimester. Of course, he did no such thing.

The bill was a red herring, a typical cynical Trojan horse that they knew would never pass any vote because it contained enough exceptions and slippery language that it wouldn’t ban a single abortion if passed. Think about it, if Kerry were really pro-life wouldn’t he have said so long before now? The reality is that Kerry is the only presidential candidate to be endorsed by Planned Parenthood and has been given a perfect voting record on abortion by pro-abortion groups. And let’s not forget his paean of praise for abortion at the 2003 NARAL dinner.

Kerry’s worried that the Catholic vote is slipping away so he’s releasing this bogus story on a Friday before the election so there’s not enough time to refute it. What he doesn’t count on is the speed of the Internet.

  • Dom – I have truly been amazed at the gullibilty, or maybe it’s just innocence, of many Catholics about Kerry. Daily Mass attenders, people who regularly attend a prayer group – good, holy people can’t figure out who to vote for. Our bishops and pastors have been for the most part silent as the grave. Too many chickens, too few courageous Fr. Corapis, Fr. Pavones, and Archbishop Chaputs. It really makes me sad for my Church and my country.

  • It’s not that surprising.  Catholics, in general, are not all that well-informed about a lot of things that have gone on.  It’s something we need to work on.

    In the recent past (last half century or so), it hasn’t been in the interest of the status quo in the church to push staying informed…..

  • There’s something chilling going on here.  Kerry is a man that has a particular affinity for abortion. He has missed many, many votes this year but made his jet do a U-turn to go to Washington to vote against Lacy & Connor’s Law.

    Kerry has lived in the shadows and maybe the abortionists are the only ones he can count on as friends. He really has no other friends.

    Kerry gives me the creeps. That deal about his last name, pretending to be Irish, questions about his marriage, about Theresa only recently taking his last name, his up bringing in a Swiss boarding school…..

    He still seems a mysterious character to me and I’ve been watching him since he was elected Lt. Gov. Even during my liberal days…I could never quite grasp him.

    I’m almost afraid to read the NARAL link..oh goes. 

  • What does it profit a man to gain the entire world (including France) but lose your very soul?

  • I got that same email, and I totally disbelieved it without even looking it up.  Thanks for doing the hard work there.  Lately, I have been having some creepy thoughts, wondering maybe if it truly is the end of the endtimes, if we are about to elect the antichrist to some important office, if it is time to seriously re-read the apocalypse of John the Divine.
    Or maybe I am just still amazed by the Sox victory on the night of the full moon/lunar eclipse.
    Realistically, I have found that over the last 18 months I have increasingly had to make and defend political choices that would have been almost unthinkable to me 10 years ago.
    I hope and pray that this election is won by a large margin by the forces of life.
