You Have a Right to an Abortion at the Taxpayer’s Expense

Rudy Giuliani sez:

“Ultimately, it’s a constitutional right, and therefore if it’s a constitutional right, ultimately, even if you do it on a state by state basis, you have to make sure people are protected.”

Of course, somehow I don’t think Giuliani believes that the constitutional right to keep and bear arms means that states or the feds should buy everybody handguns. The 2nd amendment really isn’t part of the Constitution, in Giuliani’s world, but the right to an abortion, at taxpayer expense, is. The conservative movement loves him, and rightly so: who better shows that its real concern is with power and authoritarian theatrics? Giuliani wants to jail more Americans and kill more foreigners than any other candidate, which makes him just about perfect.

p.s. If you can keep from being distracted by all the advertisements and inane graphics, you can register your support for Giuliani by voting in the Pajamas Media straw poll (top of the center column).  Or you could vote for a “liberal” like Ron Paul.

    Amazin, ain’t it? Yet you’re right, tons of “conservatives” out there perfectly prepared to bach Giuliani if push comes to shoves. And I’d bet Pat Robertson is one of them. If I’m not wrong he recently sounded off favorably on Arnold in California, rationalizing his support for embryonic stem-cell research. Then again, Pat bought Bush’s support for stem cell research when Bush decided to compromise on the issue in 2001.

    HOUSE M.D. is my favourite TV show. The main character (obviously based on Sherlock Holmes) Dr. Gregory House regularly fires off salvos at religion and religious faith. But House to his credit is an equal opportunity offender. In a recent episode the show dramatically illustrated the life of the unborn. See the Youtube video here. I wonder if Big G would approve?

    My mistake. The Youtube video is actually here, the link above discusses the episode.

    Guiliani is a true conservative…the Republican Party has been talking like populists for years, but governing like plutocrats. Guiliani represents the REAL Republican Party…and “conservativism” in general. It’s merely refreshing to hear what the Wall Street and Trust Fund crowd really believes about social issues like abortion. Frankly, it’s all about getting rid of black and brown babies…the overwhelming majority of abortions are done by BLACK women. The more abortions of the underclass, the less welfare, according to urban “Big Business” Republicans, of the “Gray Davis” variety.

    The sooner the public realizes what a sham the Republican Party (and the Conservative Movement in general) is on social issues like multiculturalism(affirmative action and unrestrained immigration) or the profiteering by the media conglomerates of gratituous sex and violence, the sooner that politics in America shifts back to the vital center, which is traditional social values, and populist economic policies.

    The “conservative” movement has only one agenda—giving the folks who have the most, a litle more, it’s the philosophy of racist Dixiecrats and Trust Fund babies.
