And they said it couldn't be done.
This sentence appeared in this morning's New York Times Op Ed page:
But real respect would require an understanding that what supporters of abortion rights genuinely see as a hard-earned freedom, opponents genuinely see as a self-inflicted wound and — though I can feel some of you tensing as you read this — a human rights issue comparable to slavery.
in an editorial by Melinda Henneberger entitled:
Why Pro-Choice Is a Bad Choice for Democrats
Henneberger pretty obviously doesn't subscribe to a fully Catholic position on abortion but she has the guts to make clear how wide-spread, deep, and serious is the resistance to abortion-on-demand in this country, a resistance that the Democratic elite has refused to acknowledge. Thirty five years of sacrificial labor by the pro-life movement has changed the parameters of the debate in this country and even the New York Times has to acknowledge it.
It's time the Democratic leadership did too.
