Moral Contradictions

Double standard?

Bob over at Commonwealth Commonsense has this question regarding Virginia and national politics:

Isn't it odd that Tim Kaine gets criticized by the right wing for saying he opposes abortion but will uphold the law, while John Roberts, who the right is certain is against abortion, can get away with saying that he would uphold Roe v. Wade?

One of the many reasons why Governor Mark Warner's name is being floated for the 2008 Presidential election is because he stayed away from hot social topics. Instead, he worked on solutions that affect Virginian's daily.

Again, can we stop stereotyping and glorifying abortion above all and start working on real problems too? Yes abortion is horrible and we need to regulate its practice and provide alternatives, but the staunchly pro-choicers and pro-lifers are bent on railroading meaningful solutions to other issues to get their way.

Life isn't about one single issue... neither is politics.
