Jo-Ann Chase: Your “Abortion Rights” Candidate?

By Greg L | 14 August 2011 | 87th HOD District, Jo-Ann Chase | 8 Comments

So when given an opportunity to describe her position on abortion during an appearance on the Kojo Nmamdi Show on August 5th, Jo-Ann Chase strangely starts talking in circles, speaking about how she would “uphold the rule of law.” Well, the law currently states that people can murder unborn children in the first trimester. So did Jo-Ann Chase just endorse abortion on demand?

That’s what I read into this transcript.  

Thank you for — thank you, Kojo, and — for taking my call. The question that I have for the candidate is one where that is — in her faith, she believes that, you know, it’s going to guide her decision making and how she votes. I’m very concerned about that ’cause we have laws that are on the books today, and that may be contrary to her faith or my faith or anyone else’s faith.
But they are the laws of the land. Will she uphold those laws? Or will she fight against those laws or repeal those laws?
You want to mention any laws specifically, Mohammad?
No, not really. But, I mean, I’m sure there’s a lot of statutes that are on the books right now that are, you know, outside of, you know, that may be contrary to an individual person’s faith, such as abortion rights, for example, you know, to name one. And so those types of laws, how is she going to vote on those issues, number one? Number two…
Well, you know how Jo-Ann Chase is going to vote on what you’d call abortion rights. But go ahead, Jo-Ann Chase.
Mr. Mohammad, thank you kindly for calling me. I greatly appreciate your contribution to the show and asking me that question. As far as my policy on the different issues, just so that you get that very clear, I have, am and will always be for upholding the rule of law, the law of God and the law of man.
And in this case, specifically, federal or local laws, and, specifically, any other type of jurisdictional regulations or rules in place will always abide by the rule of law, Mr. Mohammad.

I can’t say I’m all that surprised, actually.  Chase has decided to attend a church that supports homosexual marriage but she’s the first to tell Republican voters that she supports marriage as being between one man and one woman.  When I encounter candidates for office that can’t clearly display commitment to a set of principles through their words and actions, I can’t realistically expect that their voting record will reflect much in the way of commitment.  It’ll be little more than bending to whatever winds happen to blow, and where it’s easiest in that circumstance to obtain the most approval from the most people who happen to surround them at any given time.

Either that, or she’s just plain nuts and is utterly unpredictable in what she will stand for.

    Of note, Jo-Ann’s facebook page still has a press release on it about her getting the VCDL-PAC endorsement that actually went to her opponent David Ramadan on July 10th. (see http://www.bvbl.net/index.php/2011/07/10/vcdl-pac-endorsement-in-the-87th-house-district/) It has been more than a month since Jo-Ann was called out for this lie, and she’s still promoting it!

    The VCDL incident is of real interest to me. As a 2A activists and member of various gun rights groups it is distressing when a political candidate does not take serious the work they go thru in vetting candidates . These groups work hard to analyze positions from candidates in order to properly advise their membership. It looks as though the chase campaign thinks very little of these groups and the thousands of 2A activists who make up membership. David Ramadan as a member of VCDL and the NRA in no way takes these important groups for granted. Davids activism on the issue of gun rights and freedom is real and not something recently discovered in order to run for office. Gun owners ,gun rights activists and those whose cherish freedom have their candidate in David Ramadan. Ramadan is the real deal.

    Where is Blue Ridge Forum to protest Chase when she comes out in favor of religious law?

    “the law of God”

    Does she mean Shariah? :-)

    I emailed blue ridge forum and still have yet to receive my tinfoil hat and decoder ring.

    Seems like the answer to the questionswas just as clean and concise as the question was. Love the IQ level of some of those call in shows.

    He’s the host of a radio program on WAMU, which is an NPR affiliate.

    Seems like she answered the question squarely. Would she uphold a law that conflicts with her personal religious belief? Answer, “Yes.” It’s what we all should expect from our elected officials. You wouldn’t find a more passionate opponent of abortion than I, but if I were an elected official charged with enforcing the law as it is today, I would have to defend an individual’s choice to have an abortion, as repugnant as that choice is to me. At the same time, I would be investing energy into changing the law to reflect my personal belief. That’s what Chase should have said, instead of answering the question.
