I caught this bit on ATC tonight: some discussion about abortion and the secondary policies hovering around the issue. There was some discussion on ME, too; check farther down the page. I’m still seeing some punditry on conservative sites about President Obama being the most pro-abortion ever. But it was an interesting admission from Republican Rich Galen that FOCA was more fundraising fodder than factual threat.
Galen seemed to think Senator Brownback’s prominence in the March for Life was as much or more about his run for Kansas governor in 2010. Galen also served up big doses of pragmatism in his interview.
Have the extreme positions on abortion negated each other? When people decide they’re not going to vote pro-life or pro-choice no matter what, have they sent the signal that no mainstream candidate need listen to them?
