Doug Kmiec’s Departure from the Pro-life Movement

Doug Kmiec’s Departure from the Pro-life Movement

November 28th, 2008 by Steven Mosher and Colin Mason

The more incredible the claim, the greater the number of column inches the liberal media devotes to making it. That’s why The Washington Post, on November 18th, gave over such a large swath of its front page to religion writer Jacqueline Salmon, who fantasizes at length about the “growing number of anti-abortion pastors, conservative academics and activists [who] are setting aside efforts to outlaw abortion and instead are focusing on building social programs and developing other assistance for pregnant women to reduce the number of abortions.” This, she would have us believe, is the future of the pro-life movement. The rest of us have given up, or are about to.

As Exhibit Number One for her argument, Salmon produces the now well-known Doug Kmiec, a conservative academic who teaches law at Pepperdine University. Kmiec early endorsed Obama for president, justifying his support for the abortion-minded candidate by claiming that legal efforts to restrict abortion have failed.

“If one strategy has failed and failed over decades,” Kmiec told Salmon, “and you have empirical information that tells how you can honor life and encourage women to make th[e choice to keep their child] by meeting real needs that are existing and tangible, why not do that?”

Kmiec, a practicing Catholic, earlier elaborated his views on Catholic Online, writing that “if it’s a choice between giving a boost to the work of my fellow parishioners who week after week in thinly-funded, crisis pregnancy centers, open their minds and their hearts and often their homes to pregnant women . . . and a Supreme Court Justice to be named later who may or may not toss the issue back to the states, I think I know which course is more effectively choosing life.”  He goes on to conclude that “good, evenhanded information and genuine empathy and love save more children than hypothetical legal limits — which, as best as I can tell, have saved: well, zero” (read the entire piece here).

Salmon wishes her readers to believe that defeatists such as Kmiec, who have basically raised the white flag of surrender and are now trying to wheedle crumbs out of the federal government for crisis pregnancy centers, represent the new pro-life mainstream. Those of us in the movement, however, know that Kmiec is literally an army of one.

No serious pro-lifer that I know has followed him into the Obama camp, and for good reason.

Quite simply: Kmiec has his facts wrong, and his hopes misplaced. His claim that pro-life legislative and community service efforts have failed to reduce the number of abortions is demonstrably false. And his belief that Barack Obama will actually succor women in crisis pregnancies is hopelessly naive.

Pro-lifers have proposed, and state legislatures have passed, a considerable number of restrictions on abortion. These laws have saved many lives that would have otherwise been lost. States that have strict abortion laws, like South Dakota, have seen the number of abortions cut in half. States with parental consent laws, waiting periods, and informed consent laws have also seen marked decreases in the abortion rate.

Kmiec is not only factually wrong in dismissing past restrictions on abortion as ineffective, he is politically naive. Such laws don’t work anyway, he seems to be saying, so why fight to preserve them? Does he not know that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are eager to pass, and Obama to sign, the so-called Freedom of Choice Act, which would overturn all such laws? Does he really want to provide wavering congressmen, not to mention President-elect Obama himself, with a further justification for passing such Draconian legislation?

Pro-lifers have saved millions of babies from abortion over the past few decades through their loving intervention. Hundreds of thousands of pro-life volunteers in the U.S. run crisis pregnancy centers, teach abstinence, engage in sidewalk counseling, and encourage adoption. Our people have dedicated their lives to helping women avoid the bad choice of abortion, and to caring for them through crisis pregnancies.

Even as the end of Roe v. Wade remained tantalizingly out of reach, we have continued to place restrictions on abortion in order to give women a real choice, and babies a chance for life. Our incremental approach to the abortion problem, coupled with the love and support that we give mothers and babies, continues to be the best strategy for reducing the number of abortions now.

Kmiec apparently supports a government program to “reduce the number of abortions.” The problem with this approach is that, if you throw federal money at the problem, where is it most likely to wind up? Certainly not in the hands of the thousands of local crisis pregnancy centers (that run on love rather than money anyway.) Rather, it will go to abortion-minded beltway bandits like Planned Parenthood. And the abortion rate will go up, not down.

The mainstream media are happy to repeat Kmiec’s false claims, of course. It is precisely to give credence to such claims that they have anointed him the new head of the “moderate” pro-life mainstream. They want to convince us that the battle to overturn Roe v. Wade is definitively lost, and that the best we can hope for is a new welfare program for unwed mothers.

But we know better. We know that Kmiec not only does not define the pro-life movement, but that he has in truth defected from it, not to mention from the teaching of the Catholic Church itself.

Finally, we note that the highest ranking Catholic in the Clinton Administration was former Boston Mayor Ray Flynn, who was appointed U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican.

It is unlikely that the Vatican would accept the appointment of Doug Kmiec, however, on account of his high-profile advocacy of a pro-abortion candidate.

What, pray tell, is to become of him?

Dear MSM-ABCNNBCBS — what is a moderate pro-lifer?

One is either pro-life

or one is pro-death.

No moderate in the equation at all.

It seems to me that legalizing abortion has given it a certain sort of respectability it doesn’t deserve. Those who think about it only superficially will believe that since it’s legal it must not be the hideous evil that it is.

I guess I would consider a rape/incest exception a moderate view, and perhaps life of the mother could be a part of that as well. Of course, that’s when a George Bush-type believes in those exceptions. Many cloak themselves in them when they are really completely pro-death.

The media, on the other hand, would consider Clinton’s “safe, legal and rare” to be a moderate view, no doubt.

Kmiec sold his soul. It was suggested here on FR that a judgeship in the obama administration will be the payment. If that happens then we will know.

Doug Kmiec’s Departure from the Pro-life Movement

In order for him to undergo a "departure" from the Pro-Life Movement, he would have had to have actually been with the Pro-Life Movement at some time in the past. Can anyone verify that that is the case?

King Solomon was not a moderate. One of the mothers was ‘moderate’ — the one of the dead baby, who wanted the other mother’s live son either as her perjured kidnapped servant, or dead.

Mothers who kill their babies (like that Anthony girl in Florida) are criminals, but Doctors, Nurses and Mothers who kill unborn babies suffer no punishment. They Must be Punished as Criminals and Murderers. That’s the Only Way to end abortion.

The FOUNDERS thought the Right to LIFE was so important that they not only included it in the first sentence of the Declaration of Independence, that they made it the very FIRST UNALIENABLE RIGHT listed therein. Either you support LIFE or you accept murder... it really is that simple. Abortion IS murder... do you accept murder???

No, the press uses him as ‘The Mainstream Catholic’; That along with that huge (just don’t think about how they got it number or if it’s true), percentage of the Catholic Vote Baal Jr. got.

Wow, if he finally mentioned Crisis Pregnancy Centers, he’s really scrambling for cover. I also like his use of choice twice. Notice how he focused on helping pregnant women (which we do anyway), and not those who abort. He didn’t even mention mental help for them afterwards and why the industry isn’t regulated or patients followed up on.

He is obstinate, all that think he’s still receiving raise your hand. I issue the fatwa... can I get a second?

I’m searching for a potato sack and ashes to send him.
(If Jerome was around he’d have to stand outside the church for at least a year in it before he could go to Mass... oh, the good old days)

I wonder if the creche will affect him or the readings of Advent/the Gospel at Christmas Mass...

Eventually Kmiec will have to live with his naive decision to support Obama. Just thinking about how Obama fought the 'Born Alive Protection Act' in Ill. shows how COLD AND RUTHLESS he is about the unborn.

no body ever heard of this guy before the press started calling him a Catholic leader...

He’s a front man for a stealth destruction of abortion as an issue among the prolife people. What makes it worse is that the press didn’t bring up abortion as an issue (see the Pew poll on the lack of stories) so most Catholics aren’t aware of obama’s radical position in promoting abortion...

Kimec, a Jesuit Catholic. Jesuits infest our universities and turn Catholic doctrine upside down. The Judas sold out for a judgeship leading to an Obama appointment to Supreme Court. Our dumb ass senators won’t lift a finger to stop him. Sad to sell out millions of babies for personal gain.

Kmiec is no different than Senator Bob Casey Jr. of Penna..

Kmiec will continue to be honored and praised by the majority of the Cardinals and Bishops.

Has anybody heard Cardinal Roger Mahoney come out against any of the Pro Abortion Catholics? In fact Mahoney gives these people, e.g. Mayor Villagarosa, Congesswomen Sanchez, etc. Holy Communion during his campains for amnesty of illegal immigration.

Catholics are the leading proponents of abortion. Just Look at the Senate and the House of Representatives, The Majority are Catholics.

Why have the majority of Catholics voted for Pro
Abortion, Obama?

I give up on Catholics AND DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW THEY SAY THEY ARE PRO LIFE BUT VOTE PRO ABORTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kmiec's logic simply does not compute. Giving up on pro-life activities because you can't outlaw abortion (yet) does not in and of itself include embracing a pro-infanticide poliician.

Yet, that's what Kmiec says must be done ~ just give up fixing the law and jump in bed with a guy who wants to kill babies after they're born ~

What failed was Kmiec’s ability to resist the siren song of liberalism. Sadly it is devoted Catholics who often fall victim to it’s allure, crashing their ships of morality on the rocks.

The unfortunate fact is that kind and compassionate people are instinctively drawn to the superficial message of liberalism that calls for caring for one’s fellow man, feeding the poor, clothing the naked and assisting those in need. We all know them, especially we who are involved in the Catholic Community.

Those of us who have taken a moment to understand the holes and fallacies in liberalism (and in many ways the hidden evils) are able to withstand the naive and simplistic need to dispense other people’s wealth willy-nilly to those who appear to be in need. But every now and then even the most rigid of us can temporarily lapse and give in. I see it all the time working in a major legislative body. Devout Christians, especially Catholics will give in now and then to the cries for “compassion” when their intellect tells them otherwise, and they cast the occasional vote for something seemingly very leftist. They ALL do it. Fortunately most regain their sensibility and recover from these momentary lapses.

Kmiec on the other hand has appeared to have completely collapsed under the pressure. He saw the Obama train leaving the station and all the fun people were aboard — all his friends and colleagues waved him on in the name of “doing good”. It’s quite sad really. He boarded the train and left the babies in the station because he was too week to hold out for the common sense that deep down he knows is still true. I predict that when the euphoria wears off Kmiec will go through a period of sadness and doubt as his better senses try to surface and take hold again.

Given that the pro-life cause will not ultimately succeed without bi-partisan support, and given that the Democratic Party is dominated by pro-aborts, aren't weasel-like pro-life Democrats necessary for the eventual reform of the party and the nation?

While Kmiec may be damaging the pro-life cause, incompetent Republican pro-lifers have done far more damage. By advancing bad policies in other areas, they handed the Dems control of Congress and the presidency.

Why does it look like Kmiec is being scapegoated to distract from Republican failures?

**The fact is, however, that, after all the tortured reasoning and misrepresentation of the positions of others, Doug Kmiec has put himself into the position of supporting for president a candidate whose track record and publicly stated views represent the extreme position of pro-abortion advocacy against the Church’s repeatedly stated teaching, at the highest level of magisterial authority, respecting the moral and political imperative to protect innocent human lives. **

I’ll stick with supporting the current organization that I’m a member of by continueing to provide a peaceful, prayerful presence in front of one of our local Planned Parenthood surgical abortion centers. Since we started 11 months, abortions have steadily declined - now 24% less and continueing to decline God willing.
