One of the decisions of any newspaper is deciding which stories run in its pages. The St. Louis Review makes the mystifying decision this week to run a CNS story about Joe Biden, the pro-abortion vice presidential candidate. Of course, the pick of Biden is newsworthy, but the story's focus and its headline are designed to excuse his support of the murder of unborn babies.
Biden, 65, has come in for his share of conflicts with some in the Church over his legislative support for keeping abortion legal. The National Right to Life Committee gives him a rating of 0 for his positions on select issues, including federal abortion funding and stem-cell research as well as some relating to lobbying by groups like the National Right to Life Committee.
But he’s no darling of the "pro-choice" view, either, earning a score of 36 percent once from NARAL Pro-Choice America for his votes on their select issues. Obama has a score of 100 percent from NARAL.
