Famous Pro-Life Priest in a press conference in Vienna: the principle goal of the movement remains in any case, is to make abortion legally unallowable.
Vienna (kath.net/KAP) An insight in the engagement of the US-American "Pro-Life" - movement was given by activist and President of "Priests for Life" - initiative, Frank Pavone this Thursday in Vienna. The principle goal of the movement remains in any case, to make abortion legally unallowable, said Pavone during an encounter with a journalist. The movement also has in any case to raise consciousness in the population: "We want to make abortion unthinkable." He could himself "not imagine a situation, in which abortion [were] a solution to a problem", says the priest. That does not indicate that there will be a denial of the obligation to care for every woman, who has undergone an abortion and been traumatized.

Pavone has no idea what he is talking about.
“It is also that the there are “countless overlaps”, even as the “Tea Party” at the most recent “Mid-term” - vote put the focus on the social questions, says Pavone. Principally, the “Pro-Life” movement is therefore “at home with the Republicans”.”
There very well are Pro-lifers in the Tea Party but the over arching theme is Taxed Enough Already. The mid terms were purely about the country going bankrupt and the slimy bastards who have driven us there over the years. High unemployment was also a major factor. The only candidate that dove into the social issues pool was Paladino. That turned out poorly.
The tired old politicians are back to the wedge issues...abortion, benefits cuts, immigration...whatever issue happens to divide the country neatly in two. I don’t think it is a coincidence that each election comes complete with a wedge issue that happens to poll 50/50.
We are on to the game.
As a pro-life voter, I agree; the TEA Party did as well as it did by sticking to the lower taxes/smaller government message on which it was formed. There may be minimal overlap (gov’t. funding of abortion, for example), but I don’t see abortion as being a plank of the TEA Party movement. Sarah Palin seemed to speak much more about gov’t. accountability on fiscal matters than on life issues in terms of 2010 candidates.
