Democratic Party Abortion Ferment

      The Democrats are debating whether they can edge away from their 100% support for abortion on demand, and the debate is summarized here.

      It's all very interesting, but there's one thing that doesn't come up -- what curbs on abortion would the Democratic Party be willing to accept?  There's a sort of nervous whisper that the Dems might be able to support parental notification for teens, or bans on late-term abortions.  But will they really be able to do that?

      If so, they have the possibility of breaking out of the rut they're stuck in, and taking away an important part of the Republican base.  But I really don't think their own base will permit it.

      Whether I'm right or wrong, though, it will be fun to see this play out.

THE SAUDS MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
