Giuliani’s position here is even more radical than what the Supreme Court has required.

“Ultimately, it’s a constitutional right, and therefore if it’s a constitutional right, ultimately, even if you do it on a state by state basis, you have to make sure people are protected,” Giuliani said in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash in Florida’s capital city.

A video clip of the then-mayoral candidate issuing a similar declaration in 1989 in a speech to the “Women’s Coalition” appeared recently on the Internet.

“There must be public funding for abortions for poor women,” Giuliani says in the speech that is posted on the video sharing site YouTube. “We cannot deny any woman the right to make her own decisions about abortion.”

Giuliani claims that if abortion is a Constitutional right, protecting that right logically requires public funding of it. The Court has explicitly rejected that argument, in Maher v. Roe, Beal v. Doe, and Poelker v. Doe. Maybe Ted Olson could tell him a thing or two about that.
