During tonight’s vice presidential debate, pro-abortion Governor Tim Kaine sought to put a good face on his pro-abortion position and that of Hillary Clinton.

Kaine said Hillary Clinton is a good Methodist and he is a good Catholic even though both of them oppose the biblical view supporting the sanctity of human life.

Kaine claimed his own Catholic views for formative and that Hillary’s religious views guided how she handled public policy. Yet he vociferously defended abortion and the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision that allowed virtually unlimited abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy for any reason.

“This is a fundamental question. Hillary and I are both people out of religious backgrounds — her Methodist church exteriors was formative for her as a public servant. But we really feel like you should live fully and with enthusiasm with the commands of your faith — but it is not the role of the public servant to mandate that for everybody else,” he said.

“So let’s talk about abortion and choice. Let’s talk about that. We support Roe versus Wade. We support the constitutional right [of abortion,]” Kaine said. “That is something we trust American women to do.”

He blasted pro-life Governor Mike Pence for saying he would overturn Roe and stop abortion throughout all 9 months of pregnancy.

“Governor Pence wants to repeal Roe versus Wade. He said he wants to put it on the ash heap of history, and our young people in the audience were not even born when this was decided,” Kaine said.

Kaine continued defending abortion in the context of his supposed Christian views.

“Living our lives of faith are our motivation with enthusiasm and excitement — convincing each other dialoguing with each other about important world issues — but on fundamental issues of morality — we should let women make their own decisions,” he said.
