Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) plans to introduce (or has already introduced) gun-control legislation in the 113th Congress, ostensibly to protect the lives of children, and to curb mass murders, like the one that occurred in Newtown, CT. At the same time, Feinstein is very pro-choice and supports taxpayer funding for abortions. She opposes bans on partial-birth abortion. She has spoken about the constitutional right to an abortion and, in 2003, on the Senate floor, spoke in support of Roe v Wade. She, in 2005, opposed the Unborn Victims of Violence Act.
The above paragraph alone demonstrates Senator Feinstein’s hypocrisy when it comes to protecting the lives of children. But let’s go farther. Feinstein has, in her public life, said that she is Jewish. Then Feinstein said, before running for the Senate, that she is not Jewish. So it seems that Feinstein’s religion could best be described as feminism or liberalism. In the words of “Church Lady” on SNL, “How conveeenient!” The Jewish faith does not permit abortions unless the health of the mother is threatened (in other words, not on demand). Feinstein decided that she was not Jewish when the faith’s tenets interfered with her personal beliefs.
There were, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), in 2009 11,493 people murdered with guns. But Senator Feinstein seemed to overlook the fact that, in 2008, 1.21 million abortions were performed. Just so you know, the CDC says that in 1998 (the last year for which estimates were made), over 23 percent of legally induced abortions were performed in California. By the way, Feinstein was elected to the U.S. Senate from California in 1992. Abortion and election coincidence? Your call.
