One Good Question . . . The Rest is B.S.



Really good distortions and lies are usually wrapped in a truth or partial truth.

Here is the truth part. Kmiec states that Republicans have narrowly said:

". . . The only way to be pro-life is to be focused on the institution of the Supreme Court of the United States."

I have always found the argument that we need to elect Republican Presidents to appoint conservative judges to the Supreme Court to over turn Roe, to be the most obtuse strategy possible for ending abortion.

I'm not agreeing with Kmiec's arguments for Obama, which have been blasted very well here most recently.

However, I don't understand why a legislative strategy like the Sanctity of Human Life Act has not been more widely supported by pro-life leaders. Why isn't this legislation a topic of debate. Why does it always boil down to Supreme Court nominations?

A friend once said, that the pro-life movement is kind of like being the ugly girl at the dance: you don't care too much who is asking you to dance, you are just glad some one has come along and you are dancing, so glad in fact, that you allow a few illicit gropes from the fella on the floor.

Doesn't it kind of feel like we are being had?
