On Thursday, Jindal appeared on Fox News again, this time on "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren", inn which he discussed the congressional action on abortion. Watch the cliphere.
Here is an excerpt submitted by the Jindal administraton:
It shouldn't take a lot of political courage to stand up and say we are going to end late term abortions in America. America is one of only a handful of countries in the entire world that allows these late term abortions without restrictions. We elected a conservative Republican majority to stand up for our values. One of those important values is the dignity, the sacredness of innocent human life.
We signed a similar bill here in Louisiana that would end abortions after 20 weeks. It was a bipartisan bill with great bipartisan support. I wish the leadership had had the courage of their convictions. Yesterday they said they were going to bring this bill up for a vote today. They blinked—they didn't do it. Now they are saying some time in the future. I think it's a shame. Here we are looking at the anniversary of Roe V. Wade. One small step we could have taken as a country is to join most of the rest of the civilized world and ban late term abortions.
