Kudos for Kissling Quiz

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 03, 2005

Time to play Name That Tune:

Frances Kissling and, more recently, Senator Hillary Clinton know that the real objects of their outreach on the abortion issue are fair-minded Americans in the middle, not the hard-liners. The hard-liners generate the most heat, but the least light.

OK, Kissling and Clinton firmly champion unrestricted abortion-on-demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Their post-election "outreach" consists, not in budging on the availability of abortion, but in modifying their public discourse -- where they earlier insisted their opponents were knaves and fools, they now admit the possibility that some of us are just fools ("my respect for those whose conscience tells them ...&c."). To find out what columnist considers this a pitch to "fair-minded Americans in the middle, " go here.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I will add Rev. Richard P. McBrien to my nightly prayers for conversion. The article shows how far he will stretch moral truth to cover those who promote or support the direct KILLING HUMAN CHILDREN!!! That's what this is about, not how nice a speech they give, or how pallatable they make the "pro-choice" label sound. Maybe Hitler would have been judged less harshly if he said only the bad jews should be rounded up and killed. Maybe Hitler just had bad PR, he should have hired Ms. Kissling.

    Wouldn't it be something if Kissling and Clinton lost their jobs over this issue instead of more babies being killed!!

    I clicked on "here". What an enlightenment!! I found out that pro-abortion people actually value Life!! Where have I been?? A revelation of this kind should be shouted from every......pulpit?? Please notify Judy Brown her work with ALL is complete. She can retire now. Lest I forget, let Fr. Frank Pavone know about this also.
