Fred Thompson: Pro-abortion Lobbyist

Filed under: Abortion,Election 2008,Fred Thompson,RINOs — Psycheout @ 2:04 pm

Many conservatives, uneasy with GOP frontrunner, Rudy McRomney (the three-headed RINO), have been awaiting a conservative to ride in on a white horse. Rather than recognizing Sam Brownback for what he is, a principled conservative Republican who supports all life, from the fetus, to those languishing in prison, to those suffering in Darfur, etc, many have been breathlessly awaiting Law and Order and movie “star” Fred Dalton Thompson.

Thompson has been holding back his announcement that he is indeed running for several reasons. He wants to appear like an outsider, a maverick. He hopes this will keep his popularity numbers up. He also knows that once he declares his candidacy, the gloves will come off and people will actually find out more about his checkered past. He’s not Ronald Reagan on a white horse. The longer he can sustain the illusion and keep his unknowns high, the better for Fred. And the worse for actual conservatives.

A chink in Thompson’s armor has been highlighted today. And it doesn’t look too good for the Hollywood hero.

Fred D. Thompson, who is campaigning for president as an antiabortion Republican, accepted an assignment from a family-planning group to lobby the first Bush White House to ease a controversial abortion restriction, according to a 1991 document and several people familiar with the matter.

A spokesman for the former Tennessee senator denied that Thompson did the lobbying work. But the minutes of a 1991 board meeting of the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Assn. say that the group hired Thompson that year.

So he’s against abortion unless someone pays him to lobby for it. This is worse than a flip-flop. This shows he simply cannot be trusted. He is not the pro-life stalwart his groupies would have you believe. More:

His task was to urge the administration of President George H. W. Bush to withdraw or relax a rule that barred abortion counseling at clinics that received federal money, according to the records and to people who worked on the matter.

The abortion “gag rule” was then a major political flashpoint. Lobbying against the rule would have placed Thompson at odds with the antiabortion movement that he is now trying to rally behind his expected declaration of a presidential bid.

Below the headline is this:

A spokesman for the GOP presidential hopeful says he did no such work. An ex-colleague calls the denial ‘bizarre.’

Some may not recall that Norma McCorvey, aka Jane Roe in the infamous Roe v. Wade decision that legalized the murder of pre-born infants, recently endorsed Sam Brownback. She carries a heavy burden and converted to the correct side of the issue: the pro-life side.

As time goes by, and we learn more about Fred Thompson, social and religious conservatives will discover that FDT is riding in on a black horse, not a white one. As we get closer to the primaries the choice will be between a pack of RINOs and a genuine conservative: Sam Brownback.

Will Republicans make the right choice in time?

Update: Pro-choice Fred Thompson.

Update 2: Naturally the FredHeads are barking mad about this story. Too bad. The truth hurts. Are you going to bark all day, little doggies, or are you going to bite? Follow the link. It’s worth it just for the blog header!

  1. This is sickening but not surprising. After all, Thompson hails from Hollywood—a haven for abortionists, atheists, communists, and homosexualists of all stripes.

  3. Yeah right, Bruce. As if you’d have supported Senator Brownback anyway. Go watch some law and order reruns, you FredHead. I can see these people coming from a mile away.

  4. He’s got a point, Psycheout. You always rail on Liberals for nicpicking Bush and slandering him so thoroughly, but here you are doing the exact same thing, only even worse. Another example of B4B hypocrisy.

  5. I am a supporter of Fred Thompson, and proud of it. But I also believe Sam Brownback is a good and decent man. I am confident that he would not approve of you pitching in with the liberal media and Hillary Clinton attack machine who have obviously orchestrated a whole series of attacks against Fred this week. You mock the title of the post, “Not surprising, just disappointing” — but it is. All of you who visit this site, I invite you to honestly consider if it is right to join in with the very liberal media you know has falsely attacked other conservatives time after time. If you are honest, you know it’s not. When Sam drops out, I hope he will support Fred Thompson…..and I hope you will too.

  6. Wow, sounds like everyone in the entire world is teaming up to beat up on Fred with nothing but vicious lies! The Right and Left got together and made up lies and decided to coordinate their attacks together.

    Maybe it was the same people who faked the moon landing. Or maybe it is the people at Area 51.

    Or maybe Thompson is completely full of s***.

  7. See, this is how they operate. It makes them feel so much better when they think everything is against them. They can justify their little existences by saying everybody who isn’t screwed up in the head is a Godless Islamofascist America-hating heretic. Well you guys sure are the prime example of pious Christian goodness.

  8. Don’t worry about psych patient, Adam. Before you know it, Senator Brownback(who is a good guy) will realize that he can’t win, and that’s when he’ll endorse Fred.

    Psych patient will then blow a gasket, have a complete meltdown, and find himself promptly shipped back to whatever mental institution that he came from. This site will then wind up on the ash heap of history.

    As for bites, there will be no bite from this site.

    It just plain bites, that’s all.

  9. These FredHeads are real wackjobs, aren’t they? blogsforfredtho? Hmmmm.

  10. Thomspon’s support for the mass murder of the unborn is just disappointing and underscores why the Republican party needs to pull itself together and reestablish its’ moral compass. Unfortunately their years have power in Washington have exposed the Republicans to too much of Washington culture of corruption and we get this.

    If Thompson wants to be President let’s see him show some moral leadership. Before I could support Thompson I would want a statement from him rejecting abortions in all cases, homosexuality and calling for the teaching of Creationism in schools. Considering how corrupt Hollywood is I also think a promise from Thompson never to visit California again would be in order, it would be like a drunk going back to the bottle.

  11. In Canada, Creationism is, in fact, taught in school. However, it’s taught where it should be taught: in religion class. It is also complimented with creationist statements from other leading religions, such as Islam, Hindu and the various smaller Asian mythologies. I personally see no problem with having Creationism in schools, as long as it’s not in science class, which, like it or lump it, Creationism isn’t science.

  12. Thompson supporters are like cultists who are drunken on the elixir of ignorance and denial of truth. No conservative in their right mind would support Fred D. Thompson. I am confident that my fellow conservatives will not stand to have this fraud gain the nomination of the Republican party.

  13. […] Today the New York Times drops a bombshell on Fred Thompson. I’ve already visited this topic before, but now there’s a paper trail that backs up my original post. And a lot of FredHeads will be […]
