Wonder In What Level of Hell Dante Would Place These Guys?

Ever wonder how the Kennedy's (and other Catholic politicians) became avowedly pro-abortion? You can thank a group of dissenting Catholic "theologians" back in the summer of 1964.

Read the whole sordid story here, in the Wall Street Journal:

These "theologians" are going to have a lot to answer for when they stand before the Lord they were supposed to be serving.

For decades the Kennedy's (and other Democrats) have duped the uninformed by wrapping themselves in the mantle of the iconic John F. Kennedy. Speaking of Caroline Kennedy's failed and bumbling bid to secure Hillary Clinton's vacated NY Senate seat, however, the article notes:

Caroline Kennedy knows that any Kennedy desiring higher office in the Democratic Party must now carry the torch of abortion rights throughout any race. But this was not always the case. Despite Ms. Kennedy's description of Barack Obama, in a New York Times op-ed, as a "man like my father," there is no evidence that JFK was pro-choice like Mr. Obama. Abortion-rights issues were in the fledgling stage at the state level in New York and California in the early 1960s. They were not a national concern.

People who still fall for this "personally opposed to abortion but..." smoke and mirror show need to get a brain cell to rub against the one they (may) have now.

Hat-tip to Patrick Madrid on whose blog the link to this story appeared.


  1. I strongly suspect that many pro abortion candidates have had or have been a party to abortions themselves. Unfortunately, as it becomes more widespread and "accepted" this will become more and more likely for any person, including politicians. I think that maybe some of them are so strong on their stance because they want to justify their own past actions and somehow appease their guilt. When I became pregnant with my own daughter outside of marriage, my best friend (who had had an abortion herself) tried very hard to talk me into it. Fortunately, for my lovely, talented and all over wonderful 26 year old "baby", I didn't listen. Praise be to God!

  2. I think that may be true in many cases. There are other motivations at work as well: their strong attachement on an ideological level (indoctrinated through their school years and through the popular media to embrace a pro-abortion stance), their embrace of a strong emotional rationale believing they are being compassionate, and their beholdeness to their political donors like Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers and supporters who basically enable them to stay in office (Planned Parenthood donated 9.5 million to Democrats and the Democratic Party in 2008).
    Thanks for sharing the story about your 'baby.' I'm sure she is glad you made the right decision!
