In last week’s vice presidential debate, Democratic candidate Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., said he personally opposed abortion but believed his private convictions should not determine public policy. In other words, he was personally pro-life but politically pro-abortion. I talked with Chad Pecknold, professor of historical and systematic theology at Catholic University in Washington, D.C., about his impressions of Kaine, who also is Catholic.
