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.
