    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    Rick Snyder Dodges Pro-Life Question, But Says He's Pro-Life

    A few weeks ago I pondered a very important conservative issue in this post: Is  MI GOP Gubernatorial candidate Rick Snyder a pro-abort? Not having so much as even met Rick Snyder yet, the indirect evidence was to say the least disturbing, albeit not 100% conclusive. Indirect evidence from that prior post:
    1. His adviser, pro-abort John Weaver, is to McCain what Rove was to Bush, and left the GOP for a time to be a Democrat adviser

    2. Weaver and his other adviser, John Yob, tend to only work for pro-abort 'moderates'

    3. Snyder gave money to John Dingell (D), who is a big pusher of ObamaCare that includes taxpayer funded abortions, on several occasions

    4. Snyder gave money to IMP-PAC,a group that can be boiled down to a single primary issue - abortion-on-demand in the GOP platform

    I haven't gotten to ask Snyder about the abortion issue yet, but someone got to ask him a related question just the other day at a Rick Snyder townhall in Ann Arbor. The results unfortunately are mixed. From AnnArbor.com: Gubernatorial candidate Rick Snyder tells Ann Arbor crowd Michigan  needs a nerd. I'll just cut to the chase on the pro-life issue:

    More below the fold...

    A man who identified himself as a devout Catholic asked Snyder his  opinion on when life begins. Snyder responded social issues are not on  his agenda, but acknowledged he is pro-life and pro-family.
    What bothers me is that he didn't answer the question directly or indirectly, but yet asserted to be pro-life. That term, has lost a lot of its meaning when certain people utter it, with the best recent example being Bart Stupak who both voted for the pro-abortion ObamaCare bill and then voted against his own pro-life amendment when it came time to vote on recommitting the entire bill. AnnArbor.com put up this single video from the townhall:

    There was also a mention of Snyder claiming to be 'green,' something I have blogged on extensively because of the scientific merits, or lack thereof, of that movement. But that's entirely for a different post. On the pro-life issue though, I'm unconvinced and will continue to seek answers here.

    during one (or more) of her campaigns when asked about her position on abortion, Clueless Jenny stated words to the effect that she was personally against it, but it is the law of the land. Seems to me that the abortion question is an easy one to answer, either your are or you aren't. There's no such thing on earth as a place in between life and death that I can identify.
