Apparently Democrat Presidential "hope"full Barak Obama, the short-term senator from Illinois, has chosen as his VP running mate long-term Senator Joe Biden of Delaware.
Sen. Biden is pro-abortion, but against partial-birth abortion.
On Meet The Press he said that he believes that life begins at conception:
Q: You have changed your position on abortion. When you came to the Senate, you believed that Roe v. Wade was not correctly decided and that you also believed the right of abortion was not secured by the Constitution. Why did you change your mind?
A: Well, I was 29 years old when I came to the US Senate, and I have learned a lot. Look, I’m a practicing Catholic, and it is the biggest dilemma for me in terms of comporting my religious and cultural views with my political responsibility.
Q: Do you believe that life begins at conception?
A: I am prepared to accept my church’s view. I think it’s a tough one. I have to accept that on faith. That’s why the late-term abortion ban, where there’s clearly viability.

I would remind you only of what Archbishop Burke recently reiterated so clearly about the obligation of charity and denying Holy Communion to Catholic pro-abortion politicians.
