Life Links 10/1/08

CBS News has the text of the part of Katie Couric's interview with Sarah Palin which aired last night. Here's the question Couric asked about abortion,
If a 15-year-old is raped by her father, do you believe it should be illegal for her to get an abortion, and why?
Unfortunately, politicians never answer this question very well. The usually just basically assert they're prolife without ever explaining the prolife position. However, we can all see the media bias here. I just can't wait until she or one of the other major network news anchors asks Obama about his position on tax-funded abortion and the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.

Stephen Waldman provides his take on the Obama-Born Alive controversy. While most of it is fair, he seems to have accepted Doug Kmiec's erroronous take that the legislation would force hospitals to try to save the lives of infants who aren't viable.

Archbishop John Vlazny has strongly criticized Oregon's governor Ted Kulongoski for hosting a fundraiser for NARAL. Kulongoski attends a Catholic church.
"This is a source of embarrassment for our church and a scandal for the Catholic community," Vlazny said in a statement. "For a Catholic governor to host an event of this sort seems a deliberate dissent from the teachings of the church."
