Says the congressman: “In a hypothetical comparison of congressional votes, Mayor Giuliani’s voting record would mirror the voting record of Fred Thompson, including votes on partial birth abortion, taxpayer funding on abortions, and parental notification laws. Mayor Giuliani respects the values of social conservatism, and his position on these issues would categorize him as a predominately pro-life Member of Congress.”
Thompson has voted to ban human cloning. Would Giuliani? Would he line up with pro-lifers such as Pete Sessions in voting down taxpayer-funded research that destroys human embryos? Would he vote with pro-lifers on maintaining the Mexico City policy? If Giuliani has made assurances to Sessions on these issues, he ought to make them public. If he hasn’t, Sessions should scale back his praise.
