I’ve said several times that Indiana Senator Evan Bayh, who announced on ABC’s “This Week” yesterday morning that he’s forming an exploratory committee this week, is one of the potential candidates I like for 2008, and would consider voting for him in 2008.
I cringe when reactionary right groups such as LIFENEWS run headlines such as “Pro-Abortion Senator Evan Bayh Considers Democratic Presidential Bid.” Uh, wait a second, did Evan Bayh ever say he supports abortion, or did he merely vote for the woman’s right to choose? Supporting the right to choose does not endorse abortion. I doubt that Senator Bayh is going to run on a campaign of “FREE ABORTIONS FOR EVERYONE!”
The problem is, there are people who see the headline “UNFPA Convenes Meeting of Parliamentarians That Endorses Abortion,” believe the article at every word. That’s right folks, there are people out there who now believe that the United Nations Population Fund is running on a platform of “killing babies.”
Take the Bayh article. Stem Cell Research has a phenomenal promise, to save lives — and here’s what LIFENEWS says:
Although considered a “moderate” on other political issues, Bayh has strongly supported both abortion and forcing taxpayers to fund embryonic stem cell research, which involves the destruction of human life.
OH COME ON PEOPLE. “Forcing taxpayers” ?? … “involves the destruction of human life” ??
ANY MEASURE OF CONGRESS INVOLVING ANY FINANCIAL VALUE WOULD FORCE TAXPAYERS TO FUND IT! I don’t believe life begins at conception, but that’s irrelevant. Abortion may be a cruel practice, but Bayh’s voting record shows nowhere that he supports abortion. He supports the right to choose.
IT’S TIME FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO STOP BUYING INTO THIS PROPAGANDA.
Respond to that, Mr. Dobson.
