Tim Kaine is either ignorant, apathetic, or a coward about abortion

Hillary Clinton has either selected an ignorant man, an apathetic man, or an absolute coward as her running mate, at least when it comes to the abortion issue.

The only question about Tim Kaine is this: which is he?

Shortly before the former Virginia governor was chosen as the Democratic Party’s vice presidential candidate, he was asked on Meet the Press to explain how he can be “personally opposed” to abortion but still remain politically pro-choice.

Let’s take a look at Kaine’s full answer:

“I’m a traditional Catholic. I’m personally opposed to abortion and personally opposed to the death penalty. I deeply believe, and not just as a matter of politics but even as a matter of morality, that matters about reproduction and intimacy and relationships and contraception are in the personal realm. They’re moral decisions for individuals to make for themselves. And the last thing we need is government intruding into those personal decisions. So I’ve taken a position which is quite common among Catholics. I’ve got a personal feeling about abortion, but the right role for government is to let women make their own decisions.”

Setting aside the nonsense about being a traditional Catholic (the Church is clear on the matter, regardless of what its liberal members like Kaine say), what a mess. His babbling attempt to defend the indefensible is nothing but a word salad of shaky arguments that we’ve heard before.

Looking back, one may recall how in 2008 then-Senator Barrack Obama said the question of when life begins was “above his pay grade,” and before that, in 2004’s presidential campaign, then-Senator John Kerry said he couldn’t legislate “an article of faith” by restricting abortion.

Kerry, Obama, and now Kaine tried to punt the question of abortion into the arena of the church, but we’re not trying to legislate belief in the Immaculate Conception or the Resurrection of Christ. Those are indeed “articles of faith” and questions best left alone by the state.

What we’re talking about here is science and human rights. I’ve always heard Democrats say those are their issues, but when it comes to abortion they seem to lack the courage of their convictions. Is a six-month old unborn baby a human life and should therefore be protected? Sadly, the Democratic Party’s platform says … no.

Those who hold the “personally opposed yet politically for” position should seriously examine themselves on this issue.

First, one must understand the true nature of abortion, as a medical matter apart from any discussion about faith or souls. When does an unborn child become a legal person? From my perspective, life begins at its beginning. Whether you agree with that or not, it surely must begin at some point. But thanks to the laws of our nation, that life can be ended – and is ended daily in our cities at alarming rates – at any point during pregnancy. The child is first poisoned so her heart stops beating, then she is torn apart so she can be more easily removed from her mother’s womb, and finally she’s thrown into the trash.

So can you honestly say that you don’t know what happens during an abortion?

Second, with that known, does it bother you? Sure, I see the opposing principles: defending innocent life from being taken versus defending individual rights to be left alone by the government. Both should be vigorously defended, but when placed in the scales of both morality and justice, and if the facts are known, the heaviest plate is clearly defending life.

So, do you care?

Thirdly, if you believe that abortion ends a human life – which it does – and you care more about innocent life than the liberty of a living person to kill that life – which you should – then the final question is this:

What are you going to do about it?

While you’re thinking, consider this: the Democratic Party’s nominee for vice president either doesn’t know what abortion truly is, he knows but doesn’t care, or he cares but is simply too afraid or ambitious to do anything about it.

I’ll give the man the benefit of having both a brain and a conscience, but not any guts.

Tim Kaine is a coward.
