Giuliani donations to Planned Parenthood surface
I'm not sure whether the Left is jubilant that Rudy's really one of them, or that they've just scuttled his chances with religious conservatives. Not that he really had a chance with me to begin with, as I'm backing Sam Brownback or Fred Thompson.
Tuesday, in an appearance on conservative commentator Laura Ingraham's radio show, Giuliani said the donations were not inconsistent with his personal opposition to abortion because "Planned Parenthood makes information available" on other options available to pregnant women, including adoption.
When I'm personally opposed to something, the advocates of the offending concept do NOT get ONE RED CENT of my money. If I want to support adoption, or women's health services, I give money to Catholic charities and hospital organizations, NOT Planned Parenthood.
The former mayor has said that while he personally "hates" abortion, he supports a woman's right to make that choice. However, he has expressed support for a federal ban on late-term abortions, recently upheld by the Supreme Court, and he has also vowed not to lift a ban on using federal money to pay for abortions for poor women, something he advocated as mayor.
Wow, so he's "personally against" abortion, but supports it as an acceptable option for women, and he's changing positions relating to federal funding. Sounds like John Kerry all over again.
