Let me tell you what will happen if the pro life voters all move to a third party.
The GOP will be forced to move further to the center to pick up your lost votes and you and the pro life movement will be consigned to political obscurity for decades. The left will never move closer to you position and the right will now be dominated by center left and right voters who will not believe you’re issue to be critical.
If this is what you consider to be a successful long term strategy, you deserve to be in the political wasteland.

That’s one possible outcome.
But that wasn’t what happened when the low-tax conservatives abandoned Mr. Bush I in 1992.
The other outcome is that when Mr. Giuliani fails to score 40% of the vote in the general election, folks in the Republican Party who would like to run for the presidency will understand that being a pro-abort makes it impossible to actually win the election.
Just as Mr. Bush I’s defeat in 1992 after violating his “no new taxes” pledge confirmed every serious candidate thereafter as a fervent tax-cutter, Mr. Giuliani’s defeat in 2008 (God, please do not let this moral monster be the nominee) would likely confirm Republican presidential candidates long into the future as fervent pro-lifers.
The alternative to voting third party for social conservatives is to become the blacks of the Republican Party. They can count on our votes without ever taking our agenda seriously.
I won't vote for a baby murderer.
I doubt it, the prolife movement is large enough that they have to come to us. Yes we can not win with out the reps but they can nto win with out us either.
