* GOP gives in to absolutism on abortion

Posted by Lew Weinstein on September 7, 2008

Jacob Weisberg has an intelligent article about abortion in Slate

http://www.slate.com/id/2199495/

a few excerpts …

  • the availability of legal abortion supports the kind of family structure that conservatives once felt so strongly about: two parents raising children in a stable relationship, without government assistance.
  • teenagers who carry their pregnancies to term drastically diminish their chances of living out the conservative, or the American, dream.
  • A significant element within the GOP—libertarians, economic conservatives, Barbara Bush—favors leaving Roe v. Wade alone. A majority of the country agrees.
