Fox reports that an exchange of salvos on Facebook has taken place between State Senator Jeremy Nordquist, Omaha, who praised Senator Ben Nelson’s recent healthcare reform vote, and Julie Schmit-Albin, executive director of Nebraska Right to Life. Albin informed Nordquist that he was placing his career in jeopardy by backing Nelson.
Nordquist then equivocated abortion and supposed deaths of people without healthcare. Even if 18,000 Americans die each year without insurance coverage, a dubious argument, there is simply no comparison with a procedure that has the sole purpose and intent of ending a human life at its beginning.
Fabric of life? What kind of grotesque homily is that!?
I hope Sarah Palin contributes to the conversation. I’m sure what she says will be better.
And you thought it was only Governor Sarah Palin? « Gretawire
Editor’s note: I was going to paste a picture of Jeremy Nordquist with babies or children to accentuate this post, but I couldn’t find any. I guess Senator Nordquist just isn’t that into kids. Does he have any of his own? No mention on any Websites.
