In case any of my readers are leaning toward a Democrat candidate and feel that choice could be consistent with a respect for the sanctity of life, you need to read this article.
As a decades-long supporter of crisis pregnancy centers that provide women with information on alternatives to abortion, I am stunned...no really, STUNNED to read John Edwards' sliming of the good men and women who volunteer to work with women in crisis:
"I oppose any effort to restrict abortion as an option for women who depend on the government for their health care needs. I support public funding of abortion services for low-income women," Edwards added. "While in the Senate, I voted against restrictions on funding for abortions for federal employees and District of Columbia residents."
Edwards also bashed pregnancy centers and said he would not support federal funding for them to help women choose alternatives to abortion.
"No, federal tax dollars should not endorse or support programs that knowingly include medically or scientifically inaccurate information and that mislead and intimidate women," he said.
It's okay to use tax money to kill the babies, but not to show women ultrasound pictures of their own babies and to offer them the help they need to keep their babies. And the implication that these centers exist for the purpose of misleading and intimidating women with "scientifically inaccurate information" makes my jaw drop. I am (nearly) speechless.
