Ashley Judd: Coal ‘Made By God and Inherently Good’

Oh, how a run for Senate changes a woman. In 2010, Judd infamously opined on the coal industry — vital to her home state of Kentucky — with this gem on mountaintop-removal mining, calling it “the state-sanctioned, federal government-supported, coal industry-operated rape of Appalachia.”

Yet on March 8, when asked about her thoughts on coal via Twitter, responded:

God created the people that created NARAL and Judd supports NARAL, I guess that makes NARAL and abortion inherently good, too?

But, oddly, coal seems to be inherently good only if it’s left in the ground, whereas there’s no consideration from Judd of leaving a baby in the womb.

Or, maybe Judd is for coal mining except in cases of rape or incest? It’s all very confusing and I’m sure we’ll get some more clarification if Judd does decide to run for Senate in Kentucky.
