And my friends, we need a president who doesn't think that the protection of the unborn or a newly born baby is above his pay grade.
The Stupid Pro-Choice Quote of the Day belongs to Emily Douglas who writes in response to Thompson's quote (my emphasis):
Thompson's "newly born baby" is a clear reference to those supposed survivors of abortion. Their existence is medically impossible, but if such a case occurred, existing law would clearly protect him or her.Medically impossible? Tell that to Gianna Jessen or any other abortion survivors whose continued existence is something Douglas can't grasp.
Barack Obama's campaign is using misleading radio ads to attack John McCain's position on abortion. The voice on the ad is a Planned Parenthood employee. I wonder if this means Obama is done with his attempts to reach out to evangelicals. I also wonder if the Obama campaign is airing this ad now because of the Palin pick.
Albert Mohler recently wrote about the pregnancy of Bristol Palin. Unfortunately, I think he got one thing way wrong.
The press is likely to leave this issue alone, at least as much as possible.
