dem bones

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 17, 2006

George Weigel sees through the smoke put out by the Democratic destroyer squadron:

Thirty-three of the 55 signatories of the DeLauro statement (including Rep. DeLauro) voted to support the legality of partial-birth abortion. Forty-one of the signatories (again including Rep. DeLauro) voted to make abortion legal in Defense Department clinics and hospitals abroad. Thirty-seven of the signatories (including -- you guessed it -- Rep. DeLauro) voted against efforts to constrain the courts from compelling hospitals and doctors to perform abortions.

How do any of these votes square with the signatories' statement that they "agree with the Catholic Church about the value of human life and the undesirability of abortion -- we do not celebrate its practice"?

Mark Shea caught the motivation behind the Catholic Democrats' manifesto in one sentence: "Stop looking at us like that!"

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
