By now you all have heard something along the lines of this story in the Washington Post, discussing a series of donations he and his (then) wife Donna Hanover made to Planned Parenthood in the 1990s, totaling $900. Speaking about his donations on the Laura Ingraham show, Giuliani defended his donations by saying My idea of a choice is that it should be a real choice and that ultimately, then, you have to respect a woman’s consciousness.
He then re-iterated, in far more words, that he believes abortion is a woman’s choice. As a response to continues grilling by Ingraham, Giuliani stated So why people think this is such a contradiction, I don’t get. I think it’s entirely consistent.
Republican commentator and former Reagan Treasurer Bay Buchanan weighed in on the issue of Giuliani’s consistency, saying What’s happening now is it’s becoming apparent who Giuliani really is. He exposed himself to be someone who is very much pro-choice but would like to hide the matter.
