Default Democrats and abortion

I think Amy Sullivan’s take on abortion makes a lot of sense. Pro-life voters are starting to realize that while the Republicans have been running against abortion for 28 years, they have no serious intention to actually make it illegal. The most they’ve produced for the pro-lifers is purely symbolic political theater (like the ban on partial birth abortion, which didn’t save a single unborn life).

At the same time, by cutting the federal subsidies for contraception and child care for low income women, they have increased the number of unwanted pregnancies and decreased the likelihood that a low income woman will see having a child as something that she can survive.

I think the Democratic nominee can pick up a lot of moderate pro-lifers by saying “yes, I’m going to keep abortion legal- but I’m also going to reduce it to the absolute minimum by making sure every American has access to contraception and that every working single mom can afford the childcare that she needs.”
