Here's another one of those questions that I really have no good answer to:
Why is abortion the key issue for the Democrat Party? Why are they so obsessed with it?
Ever since John Roberts' nomination to the Supreme Court, the Dems have been in a tizzy because he's Conservative, Catholic and his wife is a member of the anti-abortion group "Feminists for Life" (apparently it's OK to go after Republican nominees' wives now).
I can't really imagine a worse policy to build your entire platform on than vacuuming babies out of the womb or injecting formaldehyde into their brains if they're too big to fit into the vacuum nozzle.
Did they sit down one day and say, "Hey, I have an idea. Let's base our party's entire ideology on abortion."
They would let everything that they "believe in" (not that they really believe in anything more than power at any cost) crash and burn for the sake of saving Roe v. Wade. Why?
The closest I can come to an answer is that it's part of their "progressive" agenda that wants no progress anywhere, unless it involves a sexual issue. But even that isn't really an answer.
Some of the Democrats tacitly admit that it's wrong when they say that they would like abortions to be rare, but most of these groups see all abortions as a good thing. NARAL is absolutely obsessed with increasing the number of abortions and making it as easy as possible for everyone, including little girls.
Why? What could make a person think that way? Is it some deep-seated self-hatred, or have they really just never thought about why they're obsessed? Either way, it seems to me that these people have some very deep psychological problems.
Anyone care to enlighten me?
