Gilmore Was Always 'Friendly, Warm, Supportive' of the Pro-Life Community

Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore is looking for the backing pro-lifers. Gilmore told Human Events magazine that while he was governor he was "was always friendly, warm, supportive, and gave them [pro-life supporters] opportunities to push their ideas forward."

But, Gilmore goes onto say that he does not believe abortions should be made illegal. Gilmore would allow abortions during the first eight weeks of pregnancy, "After that period of time I think there should be no further abortions -- because I think the child has emerged -- except to save the life of the mother and situations of extremes," he said.

A person who wants to keep abortion legal can no more be truly called "pro-life" than can a person who wants to legalize killing cops be called "pro-law-enforcement".

When a politician says that he's both "pro-life" and also wants to keep abortion legal, what it means is that he simply wants to fool somebody into thinking he's on their side.
