Leading us the wrong way

National Review senior editor Ramesh Ponnuru talks about recent "bad news" for pro-lifers, claiming that polls show an downsurge in the number of Americans who define themselves as pro-life. The number has dropped from 47 percent to 38 percent. He thinks this serious decline in pro-life numbers is due to the recent changes in the Supreme Court. But then he writes, "The leading pro-life figures, President Bush and congressional Republicans, have mostly tried to change the subject rahter than to make the case that the country can live without Roe."

And there you have it! The pro-life movement has been sold a bill of goods by the Republican party, and now the actual foxes are taking off their sheep-like garments to reveal their true colors. Perhaps some will be surprised; not me!
