Honor Life, Not Kennedy

The Washington Post’s Ezra Klein challenges the American public to honor the late Sen.images (1) Kennedy’s life by passing the outrageous healthcare plan.

That’s rather ironic, seeing as how the bill and Ted Kennedy didn’t honor the very basis of life by promoting tax-payer funded abortions and legalizing slaughter.

Klein writes:

“.. he belonged to the party of Medicare and Medicaid, the Americans With Disabilities Act and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, the Civil Rights Act and immigration reform. He belonged to the party that sought to advance the conditions and opportunities of the least among us. He was, as columnist Harold Meyerson says, “the senior senator from Massachusetts and for all the excluded in American life.”

What about the life of the unborn child? He and the Democrats have worked tirelessly to dishonor life and have abortion not only legalized but praised.

Klein further writes we should pass the Obamacare bill because it would honor Kennedy:

“Those who would use Kennedy’s absence to explain their failure do terrible injury to his legacy. The cause of Kennedy’s life was not, after all, praise or compliments. It was, as he said, to “guarantee that every American … will have decent, quality health care as a fundamental right and not just a privilege.” That dream will never die. But by being realized, it can finally rest in peace.

Why does the world need to worry about him resting in peace? That was his job, to live his life and face his maker. We can not possibly do anything to help him.

The Vatican, yesterday, reminded the world of his stance:

“The liberal senator “was constantly in the front line battles such as the protection of immigrants, gun control, (and) minimum wage for the poorest.”

“But unfortunately there were positions in his part in favour of abortion,”

(report in the Vatican’s offical newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano)

Good for you, supporters of Ted Kennedy because you have some emotion to propel you for a few weeks. BUT….If you are going to honor life, honor all of life.

  1. We do not make public policy to memorialize people. Why does that need to be said.

    I too am a conservative swimming in a liberal sea. I work at a very liberal college. Good Luck and keep writing!
