Afriend of mine once told me about a troubling conversation with a coworker. The coworker agreed with the Republican Party about taxes, government spending, all the usual fiscal conservative issues. Nevertheless he said he could never vote for the GOP because he claimed Republicans were “obsessed” with abortion. He said he didn’t understand why this one issue was so important to the GOP and as long as it was the pro-life party, he couldn’t support them.
Even though this man was opposed to almost every position of the Democratic Party, abortion kept him squarely on the Left. He never got the irony that despite agreeing with the GOP about nearly everything he wouldn’t vote Republican because of their supposed obsession with abortion.
