Ruh Roh (Michael Steele Appears to be Pro-Choice)

Oh dear.
The head of the Republican Naitonal Committee, Michael Steele, appears to support a woman’s right to choose on abortion: In an interview witrh GQ, he says:

Steele: The choice issue cuts two ways. You can choose life or you can choose abortion. You know, my mother chose life. So, you know, I think the power of the argument of choice boils down to stating a case for one or the other.
GQ: Are you saying you think women have the right to choose abortion?
Steele: Yeah. I mean, again, I think that’s an individual choice.
GQ: You do?
Steele: Yeah. Absolutely.

Michael Steele is a Catholic, and all Catholics are required to tow the line of the Vatican. Benedict XVI is not going to be pleased with this news. He is in a state of “mortal sin” and should not be allowed to partake in Holy Communion, so says the Catholic Church. Maybe he’ll convert to Anglicanism now. LOL!

I’ve heard right-to-lifers specify that they think abortion is a choice, but they also believe there is a right and a wrong choice. Maybe that’s all he meant…?

He seems to make it clear that an abortion is an individual woman’s choice and even if he (Steele) doesn’t agree, he realizes it isn’t his place to force his feelings on a woman.

Good Bye
Today is my last day at Beliefnet (which I co-founded in 1999). The swirling emotions: sadness, relief, love, humility, pride, anxiety. But mostly deep, deep gratitude. How many people get to come up with an idea and have rich people invest money to make it a reality? How many people get to create
