In time, it’s going to be impossible to deny that abortion is violence against children. Future generations, as they look back, are not necessarily going to go easy on ours. Our bland acceptance of abortion is not going to look like an understandable goof. In fact, the kind of hatred that people now level at Nazis and slave-owners may well fall upon our era. Future generations can accurately say, “It’s not like they didn’t know.” They can say, “After all, they had sonograms.” They may consider this bloodshed to be a form of genocide. They might judge our generation to be monsters.
In a bizarre role reversal with the GOP from 2010, the Democrats are rapidly becoming the party of the purity test. It’s not just abortion. You have to agree with every line item on the liberal social justice warrior agenda and do so chapter and verse or risk being driven out of the party on a rail. Abortion is going to be a particularly tough battleground for them if they insist on abortion on demand loyalty from all their candidates. While a majority of Americans don’t want to see pregnant women or their doctors locked up in jail for planning an abortion, a solid majority of them are also in favor of at least some restrictions on the procedure, particularly once the baby reaches the point of viability. (Which happens earlier and earlier as medical technology advances.)
