Giuliani Gave To Planned ParenthoodTopics: Abortion
Up until this morning, I strongly believed that at this particular time in U.S. history, the Republican party offers the best chance to maintain or improve laws to protect the value of human life, and that Rudy Giuliani is likely to have the best chance of winning, for now, of any of the plethora of Republicans hoping to win in 08. I have not particularly liked all his views, and I could even be wrong about his chances of winning. However, until now, this is what I believed to be the case.
But that was up until this morning when I read records show that in the '90s he contributed money at least six times to Planned Parenthood. And this makes me mad as hell.
Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani in his campaign appearances this year has stated that he personally abhors abortion, even though he supports keeping a legal right to choose. But records show that in the '90s he contributed money at least six times to Planned Parenthood, one of the country's leading abortion rights groups and its top provider of abortions.Giuliani says he personally abhors abortion, even though he supports keeping a legal right to choose. But it sounds to me that actions speak a lot louder than words and his actions say that he does indeed support abortion, regardless of how he wants to package the message.
Federal tax returns made public by the former New York mayor show that he and his then-wife, Donna Hanover, made personal donations to national, state and city chapters of Planned Parenthood totaling $900 in 1993, 1994, 1998 and 1999.
The returns have been on the public record for years, but the detail about Giuliani's support for Planned Parenthood -- along with e-mailed copies of the returns -- was provided to The Politico by aides to a rival campaign, who insisted on not being identified.
Although I still believe Giuliani has the best chance of defeating the Defeaticrats in 08, voting for him may be a bit like a taking a poison pill to cure a cold. At least we know where the Democrats stand on the value of life: They don't at all. Rudy could be just as bad, or even worse (although some could appropriately argue that you can't get any worse position that that of the "open season on babies" Defeaticrats).
On the other hand, inasmuch as we have to be alive to keep fighting for life, and Giuliani is likely to be a better choice to combat terrorism, we may not have a "choice" but to go with him because of his strong stand on national security issues, in spite of his obvious support of the organization most responsible for the murder of unborn children in the U.S.
Fortunately, we still have plenty of time to make up our minds.
