Kmiec, Robert George debate (Re-Post)

This is a re-post of an earlier one that was not working properly. You should be able to view the video now.

In a May 28 debate at the National Press Club, Pepperdine University’s Douglas Kmiec and Princeton University’s Robert George discussed the pro-life movement’s proper response to the Obama administration’s position on abortion. “If President Obama were interested in reducing the numbers of abortions, he would not subsidize abortion by public money,” said Professor George. “He would not oppose parental consent laws, waiting periods and other laws that reduce the number of abortions.”

“Are we as Catholics expected to sit on the sidelines aloof with the truth talking to ourselves,” said Professor Kmiec, “or are we to engage our fellow citizens and offer that faith? The 2008 election was very much a test of that.”

It's over an hour long, but very informative. Certainly worth watching if you have the time.

Due to the length of the video, it takes a few seconds to pre-load.
