Patriot Retort: After Alabama declared itself a Sanctuary State for the Unborn, a few conservative writers sent up flares saying Alabama had overstepped (like this column from David Harsanyi at the Federalist).
The law goes too far, so the argument goes. And the pushback from the Left will hurt the pro-life movement.
But I don’t see it that way.
Now if we were dealing with sane people, I would agree with Harsanyi’s assessment.
But the Democrats are not sane people. These are the folks who set their hair on fire over every little thing.
It’s why President Trump can so easily bait them into acting like idiots by simply tweeting.
And I know these Democrats. They always overreact. And they always push too hard and too far.
Yes, the Alabama pro-life legislation is probably the strictest to come down the pike since Roe v Wade. I agree with that assessment.
But the way I see it, the Alabama law is a baited hook – dangling there waiting for the overreacting Democrats to pounce.
And like the insane idiots that they are, the Democrats took the bait.
Only 13% of Americans believe abortion should be unrestricted. The vast majority of Americans think there should be at least some limits on abortion – for example, banning third-trimester abortions.
If these Democrats were smart, they would have tempered their responses to the Alabama law – keeping in mind that the vast majority of Americans do expect some limits.
But they didn’t.
Instead, Democrats took the bait.
Like the overacting hysterics they are, the Democrats running for President are now calling for a Federal law that overturns state laws and protects abortion on demand with no restrictions. more here
