A second problem with the GOP is that the gated-community, limousine liberals who control it are about as interested in abortion as a fish is in a bicycle. These people are motivated by money, and there is simply no money in saving babies.

He's on the right track, but he's much too easy on the Republican Party, especially those limo-liberals. These people are not stupid, they can easily make cold calculations about what the social costs would be if every woman in America who considers abortion were talked out of it. It would mean an explosion in the negative social indicators that they abhor - the country clubbers fear it because it will mean more taxes to fuel more welfare, and the "pro-family" utopians fear it because it will mean millions more "unconventional" families that will hasten the cultural retreat from the 50's ideal. Most rank and file pro-lifers would gladly accept the increased social burden that discouraging abortion would bring, but methinks that many of their leaders (abortion-is-okay-in-China Robertson, for example) secretly wouldn't.
