Here’s an interesting article in Catholicvote.org on Jimmy Carter’s comments regarding abortion. President Carter’s comments to radio talk host Laura Ingraham quoted from the article:
“I never have believed that Jesus Christ would approve of abortions and that was one of the problems I had when I was president having to uphold Roe v. Wade and I did everything I could to minimize the need for abortions,” he said…
Carter, who does not believe abortions should be outlawed, told (Laura) Ingraham that he is calling on Democrats to de-emphasize abortion in the party platform.
“I’ve signed a public letter calling for the Democratic Party at the next convention to espouse my position on abortion which is to minimize the need, requirement for abortion and limit it only to women whose life are in danger or who are pregnant as a result of rape or incest.
