Debra J. Saunders: “A 2011 Gallup poll found that a minority of Democrats – 38 percent – believe that abortion should be legal under any and all circumstances. That puts the majority of Democrats on the wrong side of what the administration likes to call “the war on women.”
Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats for Life, doesn’t get why her party continues to marginalize her point of view. “This is what the Democratic Party historically has fought for – the vulnerable, the needy and the unborn,” she told me.
Politically, it doesn’t make sense. The party needs antiabortion Democrats to leverage a majority of the House.”
