    WASHINGTON DC, USA, Oct. 29, 2004 (CNA) - In a brief interview with the Hispanic television network Univision, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry justified his support for abortion by saying the act is a decision between “the woman, God and her doctor.” Kerry’s response to the question was eliminated from the transcript of the interview which Univision posted on its website. Nevertheless, the response was included in the televised version as millions of Hispanics tuned in. After speaking on Iraq, eventual immigration reform and the economy, reporter Maria Elena Salinas said, “Some sectors of the Catholic Church are concerned because...

    [This is only available now in hard copy, and I cannot post but a few of the critical paragraphs.] WASHINGTON -- A new revelation by National Right to Life is timed to hurt John Kerry's standing with Catholic voters like Larry Arceneaux. Arceneneaux is a dyed-in-the-wool southern Democrat from Houma, La., who represents a vote that Kerry has seen slip from his grasp: the Catholic Democrat. When he heard National Right to Life's revelation that the top partial-birth abortion moneymakers were contributors to Kerry's campaign, Arceneaux was saddened by not surpriesed. The abortion issue was one of many that forced...

Barbara Kralis Barbara Kralis October 15, 2004 Sixty million U.S. Catholic laity is scandalized and confused by the refusal of most Bishops to dutifully govern and correct pro-abortion candidates. The Democrat Presidential candidate, John Kerry, proclaimed recently to all Americans that he is a 'faithful Catholic' in good standing, yet promised that if elected: "I will not overturn Roe v Wade; I will not appoint judges hostile to 'choice;' I will allow poor women to have free abortions;...

    "I'm not going to require a 16- or 17-year-old kid who's been raped by her father and who's pregnant to notify her father. So you've got to have a judicial intervention. And because they didn't have a judicial intervention where she could go somewhere to get help I voted against it. It's never quite as simple as the president wants you to believe."

    Minneapolis, MN ( -- The political arm of Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business, today unveiled its initial television advertising campaign on behalf of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. Two different television ads will appear on cable television stations in Minneapolis and other large cities in eight key battleground states. They target single women -- voters that the abortion advocacy group and believes are more receptive to Kerry's pro-abortion views. The $1 million dollar television campaign features 30-second ads that will run on stations such as MTV, TBS and USA through election day. Actress Helen Hunt appears in the...

    Town Hall ^ | 15 October 2004 | Rich Lowry
    John Kerry won't fight for his own beliefs -- by his own admission. Every time one of the debates with President Bush turned to social issues, Kerry sank knee-deep into a mire created by his need to pose as a kind of cultural conservative, although one who would never dare effect any socially conservative legislation. Asked at the Arizona debate about Catholic bishops who say it would be a sin to vote for a candidate who, like Kerry, supports unlimited abortion and the destruction of human embryos for research purposes, Kerry said: "I completely respect their views. I am a...

    Below is the Transcript of the second to last question of the town hall debate from Friday 10-7, and the related question from the final debate of 10-13. The questions were related to the murder--dismemberment of innocent children in the womb, more commonly know by the pain-free euphemism of abortion. The questions were first directed to John Kerry. For his entire career in the US Senate John Kerry has vigorously supported and defended the abortion industry’s bloody war of terror on children waiting to be born. His record is clear. Yet with a straight face Kerry flip flopped all over...

    Kerry says faith affects his other positions, so why not abortion? If you're an informed Catholic who watched the third presidential debate you have to be wondering what, exactly, John Kerry was talking about when it comes to abortion. Asked by moderator Bob Schieffer about unnamed Catholic archbishops who are telling people it's a sin for them to vote for candidates like Kerry because of their support for abortion rights and embryonic-stem-cell research, Kerry rambled on about respecting the bishops' views but disagreeing with them. That was hard enough to follow. Then came the kicker: "I believe that I can't...

    Three abortion doctors who specialize in partial-birth abortions – two of whom actually advertise their willingness to perform the grisly procedure – are all contributors to John Kerry's presidential campaign. George Tiller and Warren Hern may be the only two abortionists in the U.S. who openly advertise that they perform third-trimester abortions, writes Douglas Johnson in the Weekly Standard. Johnson is legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee. The third doctor is Martin Haskell. Together, the three have contributed a total of $7,000 to help put Kerry in the White House. "These contributions are worth scrutinizing because of...

    You could have knocked me over with a feather, but what was George W. Bush's best moment in the town hall debate on Friday? Why, his answer to the question on taxpayer funding of abortion, that's what. The question was asked by audience member Sarah Degenhart, whom I mention because she deserves credit for eliciting a rare moment of genuineness and spontaneity from these overprogrammed debate formats (and kudos to moderator Charles Gibson for including it). It had edge: "Senator Kerry, suppose you are speaking with a voter who believed abortion is murder and the voter asked for reassurance that...

    After last nights debate, I may have to vote for John Kerry. Given John Kerry's statement on Federally Funded Abortion were he stated that every U.S. citizen should be provided anything in the U.S. Constitution that they can not otherwise afford by the Federal Government. Given that the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gives us the Right to Bare Arms and I can not afford any; John Kerry's plan will provide me a gun at TaxPayers expense. Wooo hooo.

    John Kerry did something last night that has opened this election up into a new realm that has been largely ignored. His stance on Partial Birth Abortion. Pope John Kerry tried to spin his views on the question on whether or not as President if he would use ANY tax dollars to fund anything to do with Abortion. This was clearly a Kerry/Deer In The Headlights moment if there ever was one. Kerry tried to come off like he was a responsible Catholic. One who understood and respected the woman's emotions on the matter. A Divorced Catholic who has nothing...

    For this first time that I can remember during this presidential campaign, John Kerry made one, and I repeat only one absolutely clear point --, he supports abortion. He supports it when it means puncturing a partially born baby's skull and cutting it to pieces to remove the nearly birthed baby. He supports criminally induced abortions forced upon a woman in a criminal act against her will--, without the criminal having to have any further consequences for killing a child in the womb that a woman *wants* to have. So much for "choice." When asked if he would support abortions...

    Wheeling, WV ( -- A leading newspaper in the key presidential battleground state of West Virginia says Democratic nominee John Kerry, who backs abortion, is misleading the voters there. The Wheeling News-Register says Kerry "doesn't seem to be able to provide a straight answer to a simple question." The pro-abortion candidate is attempting to conceal his views, the newspaper alleges, "because Kerry wants voters to see in him what they want to see, regardless of how he really stands on important issues."In its editorial, the Wheeling newspaper cites Kerry's response to a questionnaire from the Associated Press as example of...

    A new poll conducted by the Los Angeles Times shows pro-abortion Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry losing his lead among women voters to President Bush. Though abortion advocates want him to place more emphasis on his position in favor of abortion, Kerry's decline could be because women are less interested in backing abortion than in years past. A Gallop poll released last week shows Kerry leading Bush among women voters by a 50 to 46 percent margin. That's down from the 15 point lead Kerry held in a similar June poll and lower than the 11 point margin Al Gore...
