Requiescat in pace, Sargent Shriver

Something that MANY did not know.... he and Eunice were always pro-life. I respected both of them tremendously.

As the Democratic candidate for vice president in 1972, Sargent Shriver remains to this day the last pro-life candidate to run on the presidential ticket as a Democrat.

But Ted Kennedy was pro-life in 1972 as well, right? But unlike other Kennedys, Shriver remained pro-life for the rest of his life. And he wasn’t quiet about it! In 1992, Eunice and Sargent Shriver joined Gov. Bob Casey in publishing a letter in a full-page ad in the New York Times. The letter protested the Democratic Party’s embrace of abortion in their party platform. Both Eunice and Sargent Shriver were strong supporters of pro-life organizations, including National Right to Life.

And Fox News had this:

Former Vice-Presidential Nominee Sargent Shriver Dies

May he rest in peace!

God bless!
