Halter on abortion

Posted By on Mon, Mar 8, 2010 at 9:15 AM

Here's a film clip from Roby Brock on Talk Business on Senate candidate Bill Halter's answer to a question about abortion. Halter, a Catholic, gives a thoughtful, nuanced answer in which he expresses a personal aversion to abortion but a reluctance to impose his beliefs on others. He calls for work on a consensus on the issue that could lead to fewer abortions. In the end, in answer to a question of whether he supports Roe v. Wade as the law of the land, he says, "I do."

    The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette editorial page's animus toward the Little Rock School District and its teachers' union has never been more apparent than in recent swipes tied to Education Commissioner Johnny Key's plan to waive the teacher fair dismissal law, particularly targeting 22 schools graded D and F on the state's test score-dependent grading system. It's tunnel vision, at best. Fake news is more like it.
