Most repulsive moment: Watching virtually the entire stage defend partial birth abortion. This is an act so cruel and brutal that few news accounts even describe it. It’s too disgusting. The vast majority of Americans, even those who are generally pro-choice, oppose it. Yet one by one, the Democratic candidates explained how upset they were by the recent Supreme Court ruling banning it.
Chris Dodd said he was “disappointed terribly.” Barack Obama tried to argue that partial birth abortions shouldn’t be prohibited because they account “for less than one percent of abortions that take place.” As if because they’re relatively rare, partial birth abortions somehow aren’t wrong. Obama can’t believe this. None of them can.
Maybe I’m giving them more credit than they deserve, but the Democrats struck me as uncomfortable when the subject came up. They’re in hock to the pro-abortion lobby, so they’ve got to support “a woman’s right to choose” even when it’s obviously killing. But they feel dirty when they do it. At least I hope they do.
