Washington (CNSNews.com) Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.), a professed Roman Catholic, told CNSNews.com Wednesday that federal funding of health plans that cover elective abortions is not a question of morality but a matter of health -- public health.
Obviously theres going to be some legal decisions that are going to be coming forward, Im sure, that are going to adjudicate this, Kennedy said at the Capitol. But obviously, weve got to protect womens health. Half of our population are women, and -- this is a matter of public health.
He added: Its not a question of morality or anything; its a matter of health -- public health. Our mothers, our sisters, our spouses, I mean, this is a simple issue. Its not making any judgment on people. Its just a matter of providing -- making sure that theyre safe. And theres only one way to make sure theyre safe, and thats making sure that its legal.

NOTHING is a question of Morality to a Kennedy!
Make that stance at judgment day, Kennedy.
Rose Kennedy must be positively rolling over in her grave.
Tell that to God, Patches. See how far you get.
Too bad Patrick wasn’t aborted. Of course that hairdo might qualify as one!
hasn’t he been excommunicated already?
euthanasia is also form of “health care”, guess he’ll find no moral issue there either.
Doper alert !
Who's health? Certainly not the unborn baby's health. What a foolish declaration. No wonder the health of the Kennedys themselves is always an uncertainty.
I’m sure if a Kennedy could get away with it, they would approve of government funded lobotomies just like the one Joe did to his daughter.
Patches...... just stfu.
Dear Patches....why should abortion be federally funded? There are other “choices” women can make. A) abstinence/and or adoption; B) Birth Control C) condoms. Get your nose out of the Ambien and booze bottles and wake up!
A Kennedy schooling ME about morals? I don’t think so.
I believe that Kennedy is having psychiatric issues. His appearances on TV have been bizarre.
Let me spell it out for you: M_U_R_D_E_R.
The womb should be the safest place on the planet. Thanks to reprobates like the Kennedys, it's a very dangerous place. At any moment, on a whim, the innocent person residing there can, under the color of "law," be tortured to death. And no one will do anything about it.
Patches can “profess” to be anything he wants. It is by his actions he will be judged. He has excommunicated himself from the church and no priest should be giving him Holy Communion. It’s time that the local bishops start standing up to these so-called catholics.
That lobotomy was a LEGAL PROCEDURE! If you don’t want a lobotomy, don’t have one! /Sarcasm
(That story is one of my favorites to use in pro-life discussions.)
Whenever this subject comes up I always as..."If I stab a pregnant women in the stomach & kill the fetus I get arrested for murder. But if that same woman does it, she's made a choice?"
If only Joan had believed in abortion...
Wow! That is the best framing of the abortion issue I have heard!
Brown University's William J. Clinton Professor of Political Ethics expounds on the morality and necessity of emergency abortions at public expense for those occassions when one is too stoned or lazy or, well, quite frankly taken completely by surprise, to use a rubber.
Ok, Patches. I’ll play.
LUI (Legislating Under the Influence) needs to be considered a matter of public safety. You should be in the Big House instead of the House...
Oh, it MOST CERTAINLY _IS_ A MORAL ISSUE,
even to the pro-aborts.
The WHOLE REASON to make sure that abortion is fully funded by the taxpayer is to try to remove any moral relevance to the act of killing the unborn.
People who have been involved with an abortion, if they have not repented, are having the reality of innocent blood on their hands, and they want to make sure that nothing in our society “judges” or “condemns” their decision.
17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.
Did they do a drug or alcohol test on him before they questioned him.
Kennedy’s do not have the slightest clue as to what is moral.
Most pro-aborts that try to maintain the veneer of “a good person” will deny that abortion is killing a baby.
Simply ask them the question - when IS it a baby?
If they give a time, then ask them what the difference was one second before that time.
If they say they don’t know, ask them if it’s OK to err on the side of killing a human being if “you don’t know”.
Inbreeding is hell on mental abilities.
Democrats are amoral people. They have no moral failings, because they profess to no morality.
So some living say.
Hey, it looks like Patrick is 7 for 7! What an over achiever!
This mother f’n dope...I was trying to think who he reminds me of and I just figured it out. He reminds me of the son of the dope of Aqua Loggers on Axemen on the History channel.
Both father and son more dangerous to people around them as they are to themselves.
I used think of the Kennedy's as just white trash with money until I learned that this was too lofty of an opinion of them.
more than half of the people who have this "procedure" die.
Exactly! Wish we could time travel and convince Joan to abort this loser Patches.
Thomas More would be proud ,Patches.
“Not a Question of Morality”
Of course it’s not a question of morality when you’re a communist who believes humans are meat.
Mr Kennedy call your bishop.
The unborn in the USA have the same status as the Untermenschen — the “subhumans,” including the Jews-— in National Socialist Germany.
The killing is presented in sanitized, even therapeutic terms: a matter of eliminating parasites. “Reproductive health.” “Racial hygiene.”
The prelimianry requirement for the “Final Solution” is “Official Dehumanization”: you have to make it clear that these “others” are without human rights, human dignity, or even human identity. They are not members of the Human Family. They are for us to dispose of as we will: fit for the crematorium and the landfill.
Its a question of a death industry.The amount of money made and exchanged is criminal.Abortion is ruinous to our society.The abortion activists have destroyed our church.More than half voted for BHO and call them selves pro choice Catholic. Catholic sex scandals are top headlines again and bigotry is rampant.
What Kennedy would have ANY clue about morality?
What Kennedy would have ANY clue about morality?
i’m sure teddy pretty much has a good idea about now...
