It was a shockingly shallow answer for a man who'd already voted to legalize the killing of babies outside the womb.
It's an even worse answer for a Catholic nun. Much worse.
Sister Simone Campbell of Nuns on the Bus fame is at the Democratic convention and she had a brief conversation with John McCormack of The Weekly Standard:
...how does Campbell, a Catholic who says she believes abortion is the taking of an innocent life, weigh her budget concerns against her opposition to abortion? It turns out there’s not a dilemma because, as Campbell told me this afternoon at the Charlotte Convention Center, she doesn’t know if she supports laws protecting the lives of unborn children.Hmmmm. Wonder why the Vatican felt the need to oversee the LCWR?
TWS: On the legal question, do you think there should be penalties against abortion doctors? I mean, should it be illegal to perform abortions?
CAMPBELL: That’s beyond my pay grade. I don’t know.
