BOSTON -- Sen. John Kerry's sister assured a rally of feminist Democrats here yesterday that her brother will name several pro-choice justices to the Supreme Court if elected president.
"There are three things my brother is going to do when he's elected president," Peggy Kerry told a Boston event held yesterday at the Harvard Club by the National Organization for Women (NOW) and the Feminist Majority.
Mr. Kerry will restore $34 billion to the United Nation's population fund for family planning, she pledged, and the Democrat will make sure that "CEDAW," an international treaty to eliminate discrimination against women, is ratified in the Senate.
"He will also appoint pro-choice judges to the Supreme Court," she said, as the crowd of more than 300 women cheered. At least three and perhaps as many as four justices could retire in the next few years, NOW leader Kim Gandy and other speakers said.
In introducing Ms. Kerry, Feminist Majority President Eleanor Smeal said she had heard of misgivings about the Kerry-Edwards ticket.
Women are wondering whether they are "really with us," she said. There is no question that Mr. Kerry and Mr. Edwards "have a huge track record with us," Ms. Smeal said.
"And he has a secret weapon," she said, referring to Peggy Kerry and her many years of work with feminist causes.

It seems that few, if any, here appreciate what you are pointing to. That is, that if JFnK does what his sister says he will our courts will be subject to the UN interpretation of man's rights. Nothing our legislature does will be binding (such as overturning Roe v Wade) if it conflicts with CEDAW and UN family planning policy.
Drive the liberals crazy!

How come he doesn't mention
his service to his country
AFTER he came back
from his war crimes against civilians in Viet Nam?
Who wants a self confessed war criminal like Kerry?

Thanks for the Ping. The elephant in the room what nobody wants to talk about, is why is Kerry's sister working for Bush at the UN?
