Stupak’s fall reminds me of something out of a Greek tragedy. It’s a shame–I’m reasonably convinced he thought he was doing the best he could, but his collapse at the last minute has the potential to damage the country and the pro-life cause for decades.
Greek tragedy? A less pagan and more accurate parallel is here. This is Rep. Stupak’s sandal and dust moment at the edge of town. Who among us, faced with abuse rendered to people we love, would not consider making personal sacrifices?
Another feather in the cap for political pro-lifers and their drive for uniform autocratic purity in the movement. Nice going, people, and by the way, how many babies did this strategy save?
