Re: Beyond Issues Like That

A tiny bit of caution here about the Rudy abortion quote. All we have to go on here is a single sentence quoted by a single reporter who assures us he was speaking about abortion and offers no context or elaboration. The reason I have doubts about Giuliani saying something like that so unqualifiedly is that it flies in the face of what he has been doing quietly for two years now, which is to speak respectfully and guardedly about social issues and indicate that while he might not be a pro-lifer himself, he understands how deeply and passionately others feel about the matter. For what it’s worth, which may be nothing.
