Default Re: Democrats and abortion

I respectfuly disagree. As a Catholic I know that a lot of my fellow Catholics are what I'd call "moderate prolifers"- they really hate abortion and regard it as the killing of a human being, but also see the problems with making it completely illegal. I'd expect them to be very open to a candidacy that advocated taking active steps to reduce the abortion rate. (Abortion rates are generally lower in western Europe than the US- which shows that this model can be effective.)

After all, Bill Clinton did very well among Catholics - and won the 1992 election-using the slogan "safe, legal, and rare". I'm simply proposing attaching specific policy proposals to that motto.

Given that ethnic Catholics who are generally anti-abortion but otherwise liberal are a large group in the swing states of Pennsylvania and Ohio, I think this is a winning formula.

You'll never get the yahoos who want to punish people for having sex and subordinate women, but they are off limits to Democrats anyway.
