Rudy Loses His Conservative Cred

RudyplannedparenthoodI think this is the beginning of the end for Guiliani.  He’s lost the conservative vote now:

Giuliani gave to Planned Parenthood

Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani in his campaign appearances this year has stated that he personally abhors abortion, even though he supports keeping a legal right to choose. But records show that in the ’90s he contributed money at least six times to Planned Parenthood, one of the country’s leading abortion rights groups and its top provider of abortions.

Federal tax returns made public by the former New York mayor show that he and his then-wife, Donna Hanover, made personal donations to national, state and city chapters of Planned Parenthood totaling $900 in 1993, 1994, 1998 and 1999.

Rudy’s wishy-washy stance on abortion has been that he is "personally opposed to it", while believeing that Roe v Wade is the law, and until it is not, it should be allowed.  Well, not that it is known that he personally donated his personal money to Planned Parenthood, the notion of him being Personally opposed to abortion just ain’t gonna fly.

So long, Rudy.  Your 15 minutes are over.
