Sr Simone Campbell, the leader of the Daughters of Anarchy, aka the “nuns on a bus”, and speaker at the D&C Convention (kudos to whoever came up with that one, by the way – I saw it on Twitter), maybe perhaps revealed more than she intended to in a recent interview with The Weekly Standard.
But how does Campbell, a Catholic who says she believes abortion is the taking of an innocent life, weigh her budget concerns against her opposition to abortion? It turns out there’s not a dilemma because, as Campbell told me this afternoon at the Charlotte Convention Center, she doesn’t know if she supports laws protecting the lives of unborn children.
TWS: On the legal question, do you think there should be penalties against abortion doctors? I mean, should it be illegal to perform abortions?
CAMPBELL: That’s beyond my pay grade. I don’t know.
“The fact is my vast preference is that all women would have the support to carry their babies to term,” Campbell continued. “One of the things I find so horrifying in the Romney-Ryan budget is that they want to take those supports away. And then they claim they’re pro-life. That just drives me nuts!”
So Campbell knows that the Romney-Ryan budget is “horrifying” because it spends less on social welfare programs than Obama, but she’s agnostic about passing laws to stop abortions.
So economics and national budgets are within her ken, but she’s clueless regarding a simple abortion question? “Beyond my pay grade”? Give me a break! Bottom-line – she ain’t a Catholic nun. She’s a shill for the Demonicrat Party. They aren’t “nuns on a bus”. She and her gang are “toads on the road”.
This only goes to show that when you dance with devils, their band calls the tune.
