Senate President David Williams called on State. Sen. Kathy Stein "apologize" for comments she made on the floor of the Senate yesterday in the debate over a bill requiring doctors to give young women an opportunity to see an ultrasound of their unborn child saying that we already have 7,000 children now in foster care who are "unwanted." Williams remarks were made to a crowd of 150-200 in the Capitol Rotunda this morning who had gathered for the announcement of the "Covenant with Kentucky Families," a set of five family-friendly bills now being considered by state lawmakers.
Stein “owes a public apology to the state’s foster parents,” said Williams, who pointed out that it was pretty obvious they were wanted, "otherwise they [the parents] wouldn’t be foster parents.” “Some mother loved those 7,000 children enough to let them come into the world to be born,” he added.
And anyway, why is it so important for Stein to make people think they are unwanted? After all, it's too late to abort them.
