It’s a standard grim joke in the Cox-Lehmann household to theorize about the upsides of a Giuliani presidency: guns would be illegal, there’d be Dupont Circle-type drag races on the White House lawn, gay marriages
in the National Cathedral in the Oval Office*, and, of course, free abortions for everyone. And, what do you know, funny because it’s true:
Asked if he [Giuliani] supports taxpayer funding for abortions: “If it would deprive someone of a constitutional right, yes. I mean, if that’s the status of the law, then I would, yes.”
Fred Thompson, please answer the red courtesy telephone…
And the Giuliani campaign noted later in the day that the former mayor would not seek to make any changes to current law, which restricts federal funding to cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother.
*Thanks to the seminarian who reminded me that the National Cathedral has no official government link.
