So, where are Doug Kmiec and Chris Buckley now? They were pretty vocal about their "conservatives who support Obama" mantra back during the campaign. They especially liked the attention they recieved as a result.
But now, for some reason, these two are very silent when it comes to the issues that they were certain they had nailed down. Doug Kmiec was convinced that Obama would respect the views of the pro-lifers that Kmiec got to vote for Obama.
Kmiec was nothing more than a useful idiot to Obama since Obama has shown nothing but disdain for and disrespect to pro-lifers whom Kmiec convinced would find a new, elevated status if they voted Democrat last November. How so? Obama's latest proposed rule change would force pro-life medical professionals into performing procedures they find morally objectionable.
Tonight at 9:00 p.m., the Andrea King Show will have Dr. Joe DeCook, Vice President of AAPLOG, the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
Here is what he has to say:
|"The administration’s new efforts to overturn the HHS regulation could mandate practices such as abortion or shut down many of the 557 Catholic hospitals around the country that treat millions of US hospital patients.|
“Revoking the regulation is the first step in removing a doctor of his or her rights to make a decision based on conscience and as a result placing that decision in the hands of the government. This issue will not only effect faith-based institutions, but could cause a dire situation for the entire medical profession.”
Of course. You can't have government-run health care if doctors are free to make their own decisions free of government influence.
The Obama administration has opened the HHS regulation – also known as “conscience clause” – for public comment until April 9, 2009.

I'd like to know where Doug Kmiec stands on this issue and if he still stands by his assertion that Obama would somehow be good for the pro-life movement.
