HILLARY MODIFIES ABORTION LANGUAGE
Proposing new political language about abortion rights for an increasingly skittish Democratic Party, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that friends and foes on the issue should come together on "common ground" to reduce the number of "unwanted pregnancies" and ultimately abortions, which she called a "sad, even tragic choice to many, many women."
Clinton, in a speech to about 1,000 abortion rights supporters at the state Capitol, firmly restated her support for Roe v. Wade.
But then she offered warm words to opponents of abortion and said that faith and organized religion were the "primary" reasons teenagers abstained from sexual relations.
The NEW YORK TIMES is set to splash the Hillary speech.
Before you know it, by 2008, Hillary would be claiming to channel Ronnie Reagan.
She calls abortion a "sad, tragic choice," yet she supports it. What a contradiction! Typical liberal.
That'll be interesting.
She is running to the right because she knows she has the nomination sewn up. It is a game of deception to get that 5-10% of the middle.
Same as always. When your position is rejected by the voters, lie your @$$ off and pretend to be something else. Anyone who buys this claptrap ought to be forever barred from voting because they lack the intellectual capacity to make a rational decision.
Anybody got a copy of Hillary holding up that "Bush Knew" newspaper headline ?
I thought that there was a common ground on abortion. Planned Parenthood kills all of the babies that they can. Pro-Life groups get to protest those killings. This has always seemed to satisfy the Hillary types. Why do they want to change now? Feeling pressure?
Liberal Democrat practicing DISINFORMATION in hopes of fooling enough voters to win in 08.
Great photo. Reminds me of the restaurant scene in the Blues Brothers where Belushi catches the shrimp lobbed in the air by Ackroyd.
Every time a liberal says they want to find "common ground" they really mean they want us to agree with them on everything and forfeit our own convictions. Voila! Common ground.
Nobody on earth can twist words around like the Clintons. It is a real talent, and has put them where they are today. but how in h*** you can find "common ground" on this issue is beyond comprehension.
Our society will either allow the baby to be legally killed in the womb or not.
Yes, and she has four years to get the scripted act down to a tee.
I wonder how many RINO's will support her.
Just let the voters HEAR one of her "Screeching Speeches"....YIKES!! She sounds like a fishmonger's wife.
I am still really ticked off that Hillary's mom didn't abort her. But if Hitlery wants common ground, she can rectify by sacrificing herself in place of a child.
"It is a game of deception to get that 5-10% of the middle."
Problem is she is going to get it.
