One other thing on Rudy and abortion: In trying to distinguish the issue of abortion from slavery, Giuliani said that no one chooses to be a slave. Of course, no one chooses to be aborted either. That’s hardly a distinction.
UPDATE: I should have waited for the transcript. From a reader:
I think what Giuliani actually said was that no one would choose to own a slave, not no one would choose to be a slave.
