Governor Kathleen Sebelius: how can she be "pro choice" and "personally opposed" to abortion simultaneously?

I realize this "position status" is and has been one claimed by Catholics—politicians and others—umpteen times.

I realize mine is a question that has been asked umpteen times.

I have never gotten an answer that makes even a scintilla of sense to me.

While not an Einstein, I can only assume that this is because no such answer exists.

Listen, "Catholics United" and all of you who sit on both sides of the fence:


You either honestly believe that people have the right to abort pregnancies, which translates into the deaths of human beings...or you do not believe people have the right to do so.

It is illogical in the extreme to publicly support the rights of people to choose to abort pregnancies, while, at the same time, claim to "personally oppose" that self-same right!

A couple of years ago, I heard a teenage girl say quite frankly:

"Hey, I'm for abortion!"

Believe me when I say this: I have far more respect for this girl than I do for the wafflers. At least I know where she stands.

At least she's honest.
