The voters of Kentucky, who are among the most conservative in the nation and largely regard human life as sacred, should know that Ashley Judd, a prospective candidate for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)’s Senate seat, is being championed by EMILY’s List, the pro-abortion organization dedicated to electing female pro-abortion candidates across the world. At her recent bizarre speech at George Washington University, Judd kept company with Jes McIntosh, the communications director for EMILY’s List.
EMILY’s List has been courting Judd for months; last fall EMILY’s List president Stephanie Schriock said, “We’ve had some initial conversations with Ashley Judd. She was on our panel in Charlotte. She did a fantastic job, a fantastic job. She wowed the crowd. The crowd literally started saying, ‘run Ashley, run!”
How extreme is EMILY’s List? In 1998, the organization withdrew their support for Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas, whom they had supported for the Senate only a year before, because she voted in favor of Rick Santorum’s bill outlawing partial-birth abortion.
For EMILY’s List, all abortion must be legal, including partial birth abortion, which has been described by the American Family Association thus:
A partial birth abortion typically involves an abortionist reaching into the uterus, grabbing the unborn baby’s leg with forceps, and pulling the still-living baby into the birth canal, except for the head, which is deliberately kept just inside the womb. The abortionist then sticks scissors into the back of the baby’s skull and spreads the tips of the scissors apart to enlarge the wound. He then removes the scissors, inserts a suction catheter, and sucks the baby’s brains out. The collapsed head is then removed from the uterus.
Judd should fit right in with EMILY’s List. She’s not big on kiddies in any respect; as she said, “It’s unconscionable to breed, with the number of children who are starving to death in impoverished countries.”
Judd may fit right in with the insanity of EMILY’s List, but the sane, sober, moral people of Kentucky may have a different opinion.
