In an academic research paper published by Rhodes University of South Africa, medical historian Dr. Rebecca Hodes of the University of Cape Town noted that prior to the sweeping abortion law of 1996:
There was never broad-based support for abortion within the ANC [Mandela's ruling African National Congress].
According to Rhodes University, Hodes “points out that despite President Nelson Mandela’s explicitly-stated support for the Choice Bill, more than 80 MPs [Members of Parliament] voted against it in October 1996, with over 50 MPs absenting themselves from Parliament on the day as a show of resistance.” (Source)
The fact that this guy rammed through abortion and was not just a pantywaist, only makes the Catholic hierarchy – Pope and on down - guffawing over him even more astounding and saddening.
Have we all lost our collective minds? It’s shades of Jack Layon and the CCCB all over again.
