Elections and abortion (letter)


by Frank Bellet

News Weekly, November 20, 2004
Sir,

President George W. Bush's decisive win in the US election did not surprise me. I do not speak with the advantage of hindsight - I can prove it.

In the Catholic Leader's letters' page on the April 25, 2004, I wrote that "Catholic" Kerry would have trouble defeating born-again Christian George W. Bush, particularly among practising Catholics throughout America and among devout Protestants in the Bible Belt in the south and mid-west.

In one of the debates, Kerry, in response to a question on abortion, replied "I am a Catholic and am personally opposed to abortion, but I do not believe I should legislate my point of view on other people".

People are not stupid and they remembered that he voted six times against a ban on partial-birth abortions (from three months' gestation).

There were numerous other examples of his 50-cents-each-way approach. Consequently, voters thought as I do, that if Mr Flip-Flop Kerry came to a fork in the road, he'd take it.
