Thompson in Favor of First Trimester Abortions in 1994

While running for the United States Senate in 1994 Fred Dalton Thompson filled out a form titled “Congressional 1994 National Political Awareness Test” for project Vote Smart in which he specifically and unequivocally positioned himself in favor of the legalization of First Trimester Abortions.

In the referred form he marked out the following statement as that which represented his position at the time:

Abortions should be legal in all circumstances as long as the procedure is completed within the first trimester of the pregnancy. source

    Here are a couple more tidbits for those whom misguidedly think Fred Thompson is to be trusted…
    When 91% of the republicans in the senate supported the conviction on perjury of former President Bill “Slick-Wille” Clinton during his impeachment
    Fred Thompson voted against it on both counts and with 100% of the democrats…

    The Hypocrisy of Fred Thompson on Gun Control…

    After Fred Thompson voted for the Gun-Free-School Zones, and other purposes Act in 1996…
    (AKA: Kill-Free Zone and leave our kids and their teachers defenseless act)
    AND even after the 1990 version of this gun-control zealot legislation was found unconstitutional by the supreme court…

    Fred Thompson in 2007 said when speaking of the Virginia Tech massacre, he said: “Whenever I’ve seen one of those ‘Gun-free Zone’ signs, especially outside of a school filled with our youngest and most vulnerable citizens, I’ve always wondered exactly who these signs are directed at. Obviously, they don’t mean much to the sort of man who murdered 32 people just a few days ago.”

    Ask Hanoi John Kerry if Hypocrisy can win you the Presidency…

    Until a few years ago, I too would have voted as Thompson did. I voted Democrat since I was old enough to vote. I believed in right to abortions, gun laws, etc etc…Can I reasonably hold Thompson responsible for the same mistakes I, and probably many others, have made. I think not ! What changed? We both gained wisdom. Thompson’s voting record got better with that wisdom…Don’t you think?

    Voting for Thompson !
