On abortion.. I had to look it up, but what I found says:
“I am pro-life, I believe in exceptions for rape, incest and the life of the mother. That’s my position, take it or leave it.”

That makes him pro-life in a pragmatic sense. A small percentage of abortions are for rape, incest and life of the Mother. I bet 1% or less. Having said all that ... none of that matters. The question for Christie or any of these politicians ... is whether they would appoint judges capable of overturning Roe v Wade. They can be pro-life all they want inside but if they appoint liberal judges it is meaningless.
pfft...then your not pro-life..why bother claiming it?..oh, of course, for political expedience.
Why is a baby that was conceived in a hateful/ignorant act less deserving of life and liberty? how can such cognitive dissidence be swallowed and labeled "pro-life"? sorry, but it just seems so 1990s..
First, as Dead Corpse pointed out, Christie’s a gun-banner. A non-starter for almost any conservative.
> I believe in exceptions for rape, incest
Yes, of course. And what did the baby do to deserve being executed in the womb, or in the natal canal, being burned alive by saline solutions and/or being pulled apart limb from limb, or being decerebrated by having a hole bored in the skull and sucking the brains out.
> and the life of the mother.
Naturally. This has been interpreted to mean any and every excuse for murdering gestate babies.
> Thats my position, take it or leave it.
I’ll leave it. You can have it.
