Robert P. George and Doug Kmiec engaged in a discussion of the topic, “The Obama Administration and the Sanctity of Human Life: Is There a Common Ground on Life Issues? What is the Right Response by ‘Pro-Life” Citizens?” at Washington, D.C.’s National Press Club, Thursday, May 28, 2009. The discussion was moderated by Mary Ann Glendon.
Heartily recommended — I’m looking for a written transcript which would facilitate detailed analysis, but so far as first impressions go, I think George clearly had the upper hand. In response to Kmiec’s typical obfuscation, he laid out the basic facts of President Obama’s anti-life policies to date along with a list of possible ways he could actually make good on his promises to work with the pro-life community to curb abortions. Dr. Glendon, as expected, didn’t shrink from asking some pointed questions of her own.
