Alarmed by the fact that, e.g., a good portion of the Hispanic vote is pro-life, movers and shakers in the Democratic Party are "rethinking its image on abortion," according to an instructive article in the Boston Globe. The bottom line: absolutely no compromise on 100% death-on-demand through and including the last instant of pregnancy. (But the Party should make efforts to explain to the morally ambivalent, preferably in words of one syllable, that their betters will condescend to accept their votes on election day.)

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Those Hispanic voters aren't too keen on "GAY marriage" or girly men in general either. And, the ones I work with, aren't keen on any of those Federal taxes either: they just don't see enough unstrung benefits in the redistributed cash to justify what is taken out of their weekly checks: checks by the way that many of them cash on noon of day of receipt, even with a 2 to 5% deduction, just to get their hands on cash which they still trust.

    I wouldn't worry about the Democrats suddenly droppping their pro-abortion stance and taking votes away from the Republicans. Two literary images come to mind: Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby, and Gollum and his "Precious." They can't let go--even when they want to. It's been a slow process but today to be a Democrat is to be pro-abortion and to be pro-abortion is to be a Democrat. No part of their platform is adhered to more loyally. Everything, civil rights, etc. is negotiable except abortion
