The biggest issue in America in 2002 is not what you think. It’s not terrorism or the economy. It’s abortion. At least if you go by the actions of the Abortion Party, formerly known as the Democrat Party, it is. Bill Murchison looks at the bankruptcy bill that everyone thought was a good idea until the pro-aborts attached an amendment attacking pro-lifers.
- There are some distinctly odd and jarring things to consider in this context. That abortion should ever have become a national political issue is the first thing. ... A second oddity is the servility of Democrats to organizations like the National Organization for Women and the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League.
Murchison comes across as if he wishes the whole issue would go away, that pro-lifers and pro-aborts would just stop talking about it. I disagree—I think we need to deal with it as long as it’s legal—but I agree that the fact that it is an issue in the first place is crazy.
