Jay Nordlinger makes my point

Would someone please tell me why the White House is so squeamish about partial-birth abortion? I mean, shouldn’t those on the wrong side of the issue be the squeamish ones? Why should the Bushies be afraid of it?

Virtually the entire country opposes partial-birth. They know it’s a barbaric practice. It makes Democrats uncomfortable. It’s nearly impossible to defend. Even Moynihan called it “infanticide.”

I mean, it’s a no-brainer. We, the Republicans, oppose partial-birth, and we’re supposed to be the extremists? So Ted Koppel and the others won’t like it — big deal. The country will.

Fear not partial-birth legislation. Let Lott rip on it. You won’t be sorry. And, if you’ve got power and can’t outlaw partial-birth abortion, what’s power good for?
