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 there’s going to be some legal decisions that are going to be coming forward, I’m sure, that are going to adjudicate this,” Kennedy said at the Capitol. “But obviously, we’ve got to protect women’s health. Half of our population are women, and -- this is a matter of public health.

He added: “It’s not a question of morality or anything; it’s a matter of health -- public health. Our mothers, our sisters, our spouses, I mean, this is a simple issue. It’s not making any judgment on people. It’s just a matter of providing -- making sure that they’re safe. And there’s only one way to make sure they’re safe, and that’s making sure that it’s legal.”

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.

“It’s not a question of morality or anything; it’s a matter of health -- public health.

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.

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!

I believe that Kennedy is having psychiatric issues. His appearances on TV have been bizarre.
