Carter condemns abortion cultureOf course Carter never let his Christianity get in the way of the burgeoning abortion industry when he was - arguably - the most powerful man on earth, a time when he could have acted on his beliefs. Records were set in his day that have not been surpassed since relating to the number of children slaughtered by Planned Parenthood.

Former President Jimmy Carter yesterday condemned all abortions and chastised his party for its intolerance of candidates and nominees who oppose abortion.
"I never have felt that any abortion should be committed -- I think each abortion is the result of a series of errors," he told reporters over breakfast at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, while across town Senate Democrats deliberated whether to filibuster the nomination of Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. because he may share President Bush and Mr. Carter's abhorrence of abortion.
"These things impact other issues on which [Mr. Bush] and I basically agree," the Georgia Democrat said. "I've never been convinced, if you let me inject my Christianity into it, that Jesus Christ would approve abortion." (link)
But Jimmy Carter and I agree that abortion is bad. Too bad only one of us has been consistent on the subject all these many years.
