Why not scrutinize Kilgore's abortion views now?
I found the Times-Dispatch's editorial page assault on Tim Kaine's death penalty position interesting this morning, if unsurprising. It was probably the last bit they needed before they endorse Jerry Kilgore. But I wonder if they will rake Kilgore over the coals for his abortion views the way they did with Kaine and his death penalty views this morning. They carefully parsed out Kaine's moral vs. legal objections and I would like to see them do that with Kilgore too. He is obviously pro-life from a religious and moral standpoint but has Kilgore ever made legal arguments for its restriction or abolition, similar to Kaine's arguments that the death penalty doesn't deter crime and that other nations without it are safer than the U.S.? I don't know the answer to that, but I sure would like to see the same intense scrutiny brought to Kilgore's positions.
