I just wrote about a week ago how Ted Kennedy didn’t really stand for anything. Then WorldNetDaily posted a story on the 3rd about how he was actually pro-life back at the time of Roe v. Wade. Kennedy wrote: “While the deep concern of a woman bearing an unwanted child merits consideration and sympathy, it is my personal feeling that the legalization of abortion on demand is not in accordance with the value which our civilization places on human life. Wanted or unwanted, I believe that human life, even at its earliest stages, has certain rights which must be recognized – the right to be born, the right to love, the right to grow old.”
What a stark contradiction to this rabid, foaming at the mouth liberal advocate for abortion. Not to mention that he will be grilling the President’s Supreme Court appointee John Roberts over this very issue. He has already gone off the deep end over it (no pun intended). What a hypocrite. Of course, every time he grills someone on possible inappropriate behavior he is a hypocrite. Here was a married United States Senator with a woman in a remote part of Chappaquiddick in the middle of the night. A man who fled the scene while she was trapped in a car under water. A man who did not report the accident until 10 a.m. the following morning, some 10 hours later. When are you going to answer the questions, Mr. Kennedy?
Now I realize Roe v. Wade was a long time ago. But Ted Kennedy was about 40 years old. He seemed to have a pretty thought out opinion on the matter. So why not be more tolerant of other people’s points of view, Mr. Kennedy? Maybe the rest of us just need to get older to see the light like you did. And, well, maybe a bit more pickled.
