Joe Biden’s long-term abortion advocacy is well-known. Years ago, he was hailed at an Amtrak train station by then-Sen. Warren Rudman (R-N.H.) The pro-abortion Rudman and Biden ran to meet one another. They embraced on the train platform, laughing and almost weeping for joy. Two middle-aged men jumping up and down like schoolboys on a vacation; that must have been quite a sight.

This scene was all because Rudman’s secret assurances to Biden, then the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, about Justice David Souter had proven correct: Souter would be a solid vote for abortion-on-demand. When Souter began twenty years of liberal judicial activism on the Supreme Court, Biden and Rudman were relieved and rejoiced.

Grove City College’s Paul Kengor, a careful researcher, documented all of this from the memoirs of Warren Rudman. (You know Professor Kengor is a great scholar. Who else would read Warren Rudman’s memoirs?)

Souter recently left the Court. He left town without renown. What fate awaits Joe Biden?

That’s not nearly as important as the fate of millions of Kenyans yet unborn.
