I dont like abortion but I think it’s up to the states to decide and the Feds to stay out of.

I don’t typically ask, but considering developments of the last 24 hours or so - would this be worthy of sidebar consideration?

Actually, the Constitution gives the people and Congress, not a court, the right to determine legislation.

U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison is one of very few pro-abortion-rights voices in a Texas delegation dominated by the Christian right. (Four years ago at the state convention, they even tried to bar her from serving as a delegate to the national convention in San Diego, because of her position on abortion.) Hutchison disregards the pro-life planks in the state and national platforms: "Platforms are not anything that you ever agree with 100%." In response to a question, Hutchison said that her position has not changed: "A woman has a right to choose abortion, with restrictions, until viability." But she seemed uncomfortable discussing the issue in front of the Texas delegation and quickly curtailed her remarks: "That's all that I have to say."

“I dont like abortion but I think it’s up to the states to decide and the Feds to stay out of.”

That’s the way it was until the Supreme Court took the rights away from the states to decide.

It’s Hutchison, not Hutchinson, and she does support Roe v. Wade though she adopted two foreign children while in her late fifties. People in Texas don’t know her stand on abortion, and intraparty rivals are few and far between.

Ummm, the author field say “Hutchinson herself” but the content of the post is just your own hyperventilating vanity that doesn’t back up any of your claims.

Perhaps some actual sourced quotes from the Senator would help you make your case.

KBH is a TRAIN WRECK. She is not running for re-election here in TX because we (Texans) don’t like pro-choice, pro-shamnesty RINO-lites.

Let’s make this simple for McCain, if you want the base (us conservatives), give us Romney.

‘Nuff said

P.S. Carly Fiorina is a train wreck as well. Just look at what she did to HP !


Even more proof of my assertion, posted in various threads on the “Republic” .....

I believe that McCain was picked by the leftist infested RNC to throw the election and marginalize the American right.

***To express the sense of the Senate concerning the decision of the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade.***

A sense of the Senate isn't worth the time it took to record the vote.

I'm not a Hutchison fan but I'm not convinced she's really pro-choice.

http://www.issues2000.org/Social/Kay_Bailey_Hutchison_Abortion.htm

Hutchison scores 75% by the NRLC on abortion issues
OnTheIssues.org interprets the 2006 NRLC scores as follows:

0% - 15%: pro-choice stance (approx. 174 members)
16%- 84%: mixed record on abortion (approx. 101 members)
85%-100%: pro-life stance (approx. 190 members)

The post could have been better but the link does lead to a roll call vote where the Harkin Amendment (S.Amdt. 260 to S. 3) was agreed to by a 2 vote majority, Hutchinson's being one of them along with the usual handful of RINOs (chaffee, Collins, Snowe). I think that is telling because the vote was so close. There is no way with that vote to don the pro-life mantle.

I note that Biden skipped the vote. Trains not running that day?

I saw her on Larry King last night and the only thought I had was, “Please don't pick her for VP.” She was uninspiring and I kept thinking that Biden would wipe the floor with her. Surely there are stronger VP candidates out there then KBH.

Border issues? Then you need to see Post #24 on this thread. KBH gutted the Secure Fence Act of 2006. I then posted more info at #142 for a doubter.

As one who lives in the state whose values she has failed MISERABLY to represent, I urge calls to McCain's headquarters to discourage any more talk of this 10-faced ughhgerly who actually favors opening the borders even more to an invasion of laborers and high-tech folk alike.

The ones on FreeRepublic who like the idea simply do not know her and should do their own research. A woman on the ticket for the sake of putting one there is WRONG-HEADED!

Palin is very much pro-life. From one of my previous posts (#89):

Palin showed a committment to her pro-life conservative principles by not bowing to the pressure to abort her mentally-challenged child. Rarely are one's convictions borne out by real-life circumstances, but Palin showed she's willing to live her beliefs.

Does this unconvince you?:
Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) offered an amendment to the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act (S. 3) stating, "It is the sense of the Senate that the decision of the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade (410 U.S. 113 (1973)) was appropriate and secures an important constitutional right; and such decision should not be overturned."
She was one of nine republicans voting FOR that amendment. She agrees that there is a Federal Constitutional RIGHT to an Abortion. How does she reconcile that with being pro-life???

But we all know what MeCain thinks of real Conservatives.

to clarify, her name is Hutchison, not Hutchinson.

KBH is a RINO. She is in the pocket of big airlines (read American Airlines) to the BIG detriment of her voters.

She recently pushed through a restriction on flights from Love Field in Dallas whereby Southwest Airlines has to wait 8 years to fully open up flights all over the country from Love. The agreement called for REDUCING gates to restrict competition, which of course drives up prices for the little people. It also called for tearing down a new terminal so another airline could not use it. Further, the agreement calls for area cities to oppose new airports that would compete with Love. Thanks Kay Bailey.

Second, she is now involved in trying to prevent the US Govt from auctioning off slots at NY airports. Government officials say the plan will allow market forces to reduce inefficiencies and make air travel more reliable. She is joined in this effort by fellow democrats Chucky Schumer (D-NY) and Patty Murray (D-Wash).
American Airlines and Continental Airlines are some of the biggest carriers at these airports. Employees and officials of both carriers are or have been contributors to Hutchison.

Thanks again, Kay Bailey. You forget that you work for the voters, not the airlines.

She voted for the partial birth abortion ban twice. I don't know why she voted for this crappy “sense of the Senate” but you're right she did. It very well could be that she is pro-life but would never vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Like I said, I don't want her as VP but I'm not convinced she's pro-choice with a 75% NRLC rating.

Southwest Airlines can have all the gates it wants at DFW airport, to fly to anywhere it wants. Oh, that’s right... they want to lock in their near monopoly at Love Field and not have to do battle with the big boys on a level playing field...

“Kay Bailey Hutchison on Immigration”

But she also slipped language into a bill a few months back that removed the requirement that a fence be built along the border:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1953412/posts

While watching the amnesty debate last summer, I often had the feeling that she wanted to bolt and join the pro-amnesty senators.

She’s very shaky on strict immigration enforcement.

The only way the states get to decide is if the POTUS nominates judges that will eventually overturn Roe.

Quite often when a POTUS is done serving due to death or term limit, the Vice President is the front runner for the job.

What kind of judges do you, as a pro-life conservative trust KBH, a pro-baby-murder politician, to nominate?
