So here is the new Democratic strategy–court the religious right by promoting healthy pregnancies and downplaying the right to safe, legal abortions.  Now don’t get me wrong–I think a whole lot more money needs to be spent on services to pregnant women, new mothers and their babies.  But doing so in an attempt to distance themselves from the abortion issue is just another sell-out of women’s bodies for political gain.

“From a political perspective, Democratic strategists warn that emphasizing birth control gives voters a bad impression — “that Democrats are just about free love, not morality,” said Rachel Laser, an analyst for the progressive think tank Third Way.”

Refresher course on the meaning of morality for Ms. Laser and the Dems:  The human right of every woman to be fully supported in making her own decisions regarding her life and body.  There is no compromise on this issue.

  1. There are so many flaws in this article (its journalism as well as the Democratic strategy it purports to report) that it would take all day to analyze them. But you nailed the core issue perfectly, Lucinda. Send it around far and wide.

  2. Hmmm, I had no idea Tim Ryan from Ohio opposed abortion. He’s from the district next to my parents and he was Trafficant’s understudy. I thought he was a pro-choice politician?
