Novak Stunned by Fred Thompson ‘Abortion Blunder’ Syndicated columnist Robert Novak says he and other social conservatives were “stunned” by remarks from Republican presidential hopeful Fred Thompson that showed “an astounding lack of sensitivity about abortion.” Thompson’s comments came during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Nov. 4. “I do not think it is a wise thing to criminalize young girls and perhaps their parents as aider and abettors [if girls have an abortion],” he said, adding: “You can’t have a [federal] law” that “would take young girls … and say, basically, we’re going to put them in jail.” In a column headlined “A Major Abortion Blunder,” Novak writes that Thompson’s statements drew “astonishment” and “rage” from pro-life Republicans “who had turned to Thompson as their best presidential bet for 2008. No serious antiabortion legislation ever has included criminal penalties against women who have abortions, much less their parents. Jailing women is a spurious issue raised by abortion rights activists.” Thompson’s comments “revealed an astounding lack of sensitivity about abortion … Whether the candidate just blurted out his statement or had planned it, it suggested a failure to realize how much his chances for the Republican nomination depend on social conservatives.” …
But when interviewer Tim Russert asked Thompson whether he could run for president on the 2004 Republican platform plank endorsing a “human life” constitutional amendment banning all abortions, Thompson replied “No,” then added: “That’s been my position the entire time I’ve been in politics.” Novak noted: “Every Republican platform since 1980 has endorsed such an amendment, and every Republican candidate since then has been able to run on it.”
