Jill Stanek has written an interesting column regarding how Obama is wooing undiscerning pro-life voters into his ranks. Here’s a snippet:
But Barack Obama and his surrogates have been making the pitch that despite his unflinching support for abortion on demand – which includes overturning every local, state and federal law against abortion as well as providing government funding for abortion both in the U.S. and internationally – his plan to throw more taxpayer money at failed comprehensive sex ed and contraceptive programs will result in fewer abortions.
And apparently, some very stupid pro-lifers and pro-lifers in name only are falling for it. Yet in no other realm would such an argument hold water.
How is it that people fall for this silver-tongued used-car-salesman?
