Ancient Abortion Carving

CEM’s Ron Dart recently posted the following:

There was a time when the Democratic Party was called “the Catholic party” while the Republicans were called “the Protestant party.” Ted Kennedy, back before Roe v. Wade, was opposed to abortion and felt society had a responsibility to children from the moment of conception. As late as three years after Roe, Kennedy wrote that “abortion is morally wrong. It is not a legitimate or acceptable response to any problem of society.

Lying and abortion are wrong.  It is not right to murder unborn babies or to lie about one’s position on this.
