Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate Tim Kaine claims to be Catholic but the pro-abortion Democrat last night headlined a fundraiser for a pro-abortion group. Kaine made a campaign visit to Minnesota Tuesday but then appeared at a private fundraiser sponsored by abortion activists.
Kaine raised tens of thousands of dollars for the abortion advocacy group. Here’s more from a local news report:
Kaine later headed to a private fundraiser, hosted by the political organization Women Winning. A flier for the event listed contribution levels ranging from $500 for advocates up to $27,000 for reception co-hosts.
Women Winning is an organization that backs candidates who support abortion rights.
The Clinton campaign released additional details late Tuesday about Kaine’s Minnesota fundraising activities including his appearance at a second private event. The first event, at the Minneapolis Event Center, had 200 attendees. The second fundraiser was at the Carlson family home in Long Lake. It had 25 attendees who each contributed $10,000. The event co-hosts raised or contributed $50,000 and the hosts raised or contributed $100,000.
LifeNews.com has extensively profiled the pro-abortion position of Hillary Clinton’s vice-presidential running mate Tim Kaine. In July, a Catholic bishop said he can’t reconcile his Catholic faith with abortion.
Bishop Thomas Tobin of the Diocese of Providence, Rhode Island, posted a message on Facebook that was so popular it received over 1,000 shares:
VP Pick, Tim Kaine, a Catholic?
Democratic VP choice, Tim Kaine, has been widely identified as a Roman Catholic. It is also reported that he publicly supports “freedom of choice” for abortion, same-sex marriage, gay adoptions, and the ordination of women as priests. All of these positions are clearly contrary to well-established Catholic teachings; all of them have been opposed by Pope Francis as well.
Senator Kaine has said, “My faith is central to everything I do.” But apparently, and unfortunately, his faith isn’t central to his public, political life.Report continues here
