Pro-Choice DivideMay 15, 2008
Hidden deep in today's Washington Post article about John Edward's much coveted endorsement of Barak Obama is a paragraph that shows yet another division in the Democrat party. This time over which presidential candidate has the best pro-abortion credentials. Apparently, NARAL Pro-Choice and Emily's List, the two competitors over pro-choice dollars, are at odds over Obama and Hillary. NARAL choosing Barak with Emily's List choosing Hillary. The division broke down into media and blog-battles yesterday and today.
Hard to pick which of these candidates is most pro-choice, since they both support abortion on demand through birth, regardless of reason. If Hillary isn't pro-choice enough for some in the Democrat party, it really makes you wonder what she would have to do to earn their support? And if Barak is even more pro-choice than Hillary . . . ?
