Dick Durbin, Wrong as usual

On Iraq:
“The violence is marginally down in Iraq, but not enough to achieve our real goal, which is to bring American troops home,” added Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). 07/10/08

On Supreme Court's ruling - Americans have a right to own guns for self-defense and hunting:
"This school year alone, over 20 Chicago public school students have been killed by guns. And in April there was a 10-day stretch in Chicago where there were 48 shootings. ... Acknowledging that gun ownership is a basic right does not absolve us from the constitutional and moral responsibility to protect innocent children" _ Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. 06/26/08

On late term abortion:
"...and I am trying with this amendment to strike a reasonable compromise.
"...it (Durbin's Amendment ed.) tries to draw a reasonable, sensible line, a good-faith line, of where we will allow abortions in late- term pregnancies." 03/13/03

On a bill to protect unborn children from assault and murder, and for other purposes.
Bill (H. R. 1997 ) to amend title 18, United States Code, and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
Durbin (D-IL), Nay 3/24/04
