New Stanek WND column, “Can pro-lifers ever support Democrats again?”


I'm proud to be a Republican, but I'm pro-life first.

After making a couple observations about 2 years ago, I decided to work harder at being a nonpartisan pro-lifer.

First, it seemed to me Republicans were taking our support for granted and had wasted political capital, particularly when they owned all 3 branches of government from 2000-2006 (save for the 17-month Jeffords Senate flip blip).

Second, I thought Rahm Emanuel gave us an opening in 2006 when forced to recruit pro-lifers to run in conservative districts so House Democrats might win back the majority. Could we germinate life in the Party of Death?

Thereafter I bolstered Democrat pro-lifers whenever I could in my writing. It was hard, but I tried to catch 'em being good.

Then health care happened, and the importance of Democrat pro-lifers became more apparent than ever before. We were on the brink of advancing abortion to an extent not seen since the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. The Supremes made it legal; socialized health care would make it much more available through regulations and much more affordable through public funding.

Republicans in the minority were basically helpless to stop it, but could the small Democratic pro-life band of brothers and sisters?

It was at this point I wrote two blog posts I now regret - "Remain calm about Nelson" and "Remain calm about Stupak." A proverb I knew but cast aside in hope: Never "remain calm" about any politician....
