Desperate Barney Frank Now Begging for More Democratic Baby-Killer Money

Posted on | October 20, 2010 | 4 Comments

“A vote for me is a vote to save your right to destroy your inconvenient unborn children.”
Barney Frank

Oh. Wait. Barney didn’t actually say that. But as Pundette says, that’s what he meant when he said this:

My opponent, Sean Bielat, supports the reversal of Roe v. Wade. When asked by a reporter whether he would allow abortion in the case of rape or incest, he refused to answer. On a questionnaire by the Massachusetts Citizens for Life, he agreed with every position taken by that organization.

In other words, Barney believes that Bielat’s unapologetic pro-life stance is a political liability. OK, so let me ask this question: How many faithful Catholics in the 4th District?

How many of those Catholics have voted for Barney Frank in the past? How many Catholic voters in the 4th District know that Sean Bielat is Catholic, and that Barney Frank is sending out fundraising letters attacking Bielat for supporting the Catholic pro-life position?

Look, I remember the Scott Brown campaign. I remember how Martha Coakley lashed herself to the mast on the pro-abortion position. And I remember talking to Catholic Democrats — including elected Democratic public officials — who told me they were voting for Scott Brown.

Some Republicans want to pretend that pro-life voters don’t matter, but in a place like Massachusetts, the Democrat who alienates Catholics on the abortion issue is taking a huge risk if he ever finds himself facing a strong Republican challenger with the courage to stand up and say, “I believe in the right to life.”

    Not to mention that abortion rights are NOT EVEN ON THE TABLE this election nor probably any time in the future. No offense to anyone out there, but at the moment there are way more pressing issues. Frankly, I don’t give a flying you know what about being able to have an abortion because instead I’m worrying about my husband being able to find a job and us being able to pay the mortgage and put food on the table for all of us on just my salary. It just doesn’t matter to most voters at this time!
