"It's a crucial moment for the abortion rights movement. Don't blow it." urges William Saletan, coaching pro-abortion marchers to pull in their horns and sing some libertarian tunes (which appeal to swing voters) -- at least until the Supreme Court has been safely re-packed and the Final Solution can go forward at full throttle once more.
