Source: Associated Press




OMAHA, Neb. (AP) ó The Nebraska Republican Party wants a Jesuit college in Omaha to rescind its invitation asking former U.S. Sen. Bob Kerrey to speak at its commencement, citing his position in favor of the right to abortion.

The state party's executive director, Ryan Hamilton, released a statement Thursday saying Creighton University should find a different commencement speaker and "take a stand for their pro-life values."

. . .

Kerrey, who also formerly served as Nebraska's governor, said he supports Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.

"That doesn't make you pro-abortion," he said. "That makes you pro-civil rights."

2. Is the Nebraska GOP graduating from Creighton this year

I don't think they would be alumni either.

Mind your own business, find some governing to do.

3. You are dead wrong.

Donít tell them to govern! That wonít help anything!

5. I wonder how many of the Neb GOP were hiding behind draft deferments

while Lieutenant Bob Kerrey came close to losing his life in Vietnam, or like Kerry and McCain, is it okay to disrespect him too.
