Fred Thompson Lobbied for Abortion Rights

It was only a matter of time--formally announced or not--before we found out that the so-called conservative's choice, Fred Thompson, is nothing but an opportunistic, money grubbing, hypocrite:
Fred Thompson, who is weighing a Republican presidential bid as a social conservative, "has no recollection" of performing lobbying work in 1991 for a family planning group that was seeking to relax an abortion counseling rule, a spokesman said Friday.

The Los Angeles Times reported on its Web site that Thompson was retained by National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association to lobby the administration of President George H.W. Bush to ease a regulation that prevented clinics that received federal money from offering any abortion counseling.
