Kate Michelman, the former president of the NARAL pro-abortion organization, joined pro-abortion MSNBC talk show host Chris Matthews and said vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan is “crazy” to believe that unborn children should be legally protected.

The National Right to Life Committee, in tracking the votes Ryan has cast in Congress on important pro-life issues, has crafted a perfect 100% pro-life voting record.
This year, Ryan is 10 for 10 in pro-life voting voting to repeal Obamacare, cut off taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood repeatedly, stopping taxpayer funding for abortions in various instances, banning sex-selection abortions, providing for pro-life conscience protections for medical professionals, and banning abortions at 20 weeks of pregnancy in the nations capital.
In fact, in 78 votes NRLC has tracked where Ryan voted on key pro-life issues, he never voted against pro-life interests during his career in the House of Representatives. Ryan has voted to prevent taxpayer funding of embryonic stem cell research and to ban the horrific practice of partial-birth abortion.
During the 2010 elections, Ryan told The Weekly Standards John McCormack, Im as pro-life as a person gets.
He responded to a controversial truce that Mitch Daniels of Indiana had put forward saying social issues should be put on the back burner, and repudiated it.
Youre not going to have a truce. Judges are going to come up. Issues come up, theyre unavoidable, and Im never going to not vote pro-life, Ryan said.
Ryan said he is equally adamant about both his conservative fiscal views as well as his position that every unborn child has the right to live.
I write as an unswerving proponent of both free market choice and the natural right to life, Ryan wrote in a Heritage Foundation piece called The Cause of Life Cant be Severed from the Cause of Freedom. It is unfortunate that life and choice were ever separated and viewed as alternatives.
Ryan continued: I cannot believe any official or citizen can still defend the notion that an unborn human being has no rights that an older person is bound to respect. I do know that we cannot go on forever feigning agnosticism about who is human. As Thomas Jefferson wrote, The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time. The freedom to choose is pointless for someone who does not have the freedom to live. So the right of choice of one human being cannot trump the right to life of another. How long can we sustain our commitment to freedom if we continue to deny the very foundation of freedomlifefor the most vulnerable human beings?
All conservatives should find it easy to agree that government must uphold every persons right to make choices regarding their lives and that every persons right to live must be secured before he or she can exercise that right of choice, he said then.
Please freepmail me if you want on/off this list
I've seen this woman; she's unhinged.
I'm fairly certain she thinks every woman should get pregnant one way or another, and have an abortion, just to prove that she can.
She's not "pro-choice", she's "pro-abortion".
Moral absolutes, ping!
Shocked beyond belief here.
After all, 100% just shows zero tolerance. /MS
Some abortion-obsessed NARAL hag criticizing Paul Ryan for his pro-life stands (and congressional votes to back it up) is more proof that Romney made the right decision in choosing Ryan as his VP.
Hey Kate...you bloodless bitch...how does it feel to be on the wrong side of A) God, and B) history at the same time?
Recommended Ryan Response:
“To have my views criticized as “crazy”, by someone who makes their living, killing babies, doesn’t concern me much.”
I think Kate Michelman’s pro-choice views are crazy. So there.
Michelman ain’t pro-choice; she’s pro-abortion.
Who would expect her to say anything less?
So does Jill stanek also approve of laws that give murderers double sentences when a preganat woman is killed? If she does she’s the biggest hypocrite on the earth.
