Harry Reid, Fake Pro-Lifer

by Ramesh Ponnuru

Yesterday I noted some statements of his that are hard to square with his self-description as a pro-lifer. (His spokesman in 2009 said he was “strongly pro-life” and that the spokesman “resent[ed] any suggestion to the contrary.”)

Here’s another statement Reid made this week, when asked about Senator Lindsey Graham’s bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks. “Wouldn’t it be great if the Republicans offered something, anything that would create a job? As we know he’s got a difficult primary down there and he keeps moving further to the right. That’s what this is all about.”
