- Losing a key pro-life endorsement to state Senate President David Williams, Republican gubernatorial candidate Phil Moffett flexed his socially conservative views in a recent questionnaire sent out by the Associated Press. The Louisville businessman, who is backed by the Tea Party, didn’t pull any punches on the issues and equated abortion with murder. From the Daily Journal:
Moffett, better known for his fiscal conservatism, shows the colors of a social conservative on the abortion issue.
'Human life begins at conception and a fetus is as human as a toddler,' Moffett said, responding to the AP questionnaire. 'No one would seek a special exemption to murder a toddler, so there should be no special exemptions for murdering a human fetus.'" [WFPL]
