Re: Democrats and abortion
But your sister kind of makes my point! Surely she'd be open to voting for a Democrat committed to reducing the abortion rate without compromising choice? ... which is what I'm basically suggesting.
By the way, there are a lot of Republicans who feel the same as your sister- who vote Republican ONLY because they (correctly) think that there is no way the Republicans will ever actually ban abortion, especially for middle class women. As more and more pro-lifers realize that they are being played for suckers, more will be open to a non-coercive approach to reducing abortion.
