The New York Times columnist David Brooks writes in a memo to Democratic Party leaders that their support for abortion on demand up until birth is hurting their party.
Pointing out the failure of the Senate to muster 60 votes to protect unborn babies from abortion past the fifth month of pregnancy, Brooks notes, I kept wondering: How much is our position on late-term abortions hurting us?
Taking his readers back through time before Roe v. Wade, when the Supreme Court created a right to abortion though, as Alan Dershowitz has noted, none ever existed in the Constitution Brooks observes that some right to life groups, including the National Catholic Welfare Conference, once also embraced progressive causes, such as a right to collective bargaining.
Roe v. Wade, however, polarized the abortion debate, Brooks writes, as the pro-life movement gained momentum.
Without pro-life voters, Ronald Reagan never would have been elected, he explains. Without single-issue voters who wanted pro-life judges, there would never have been a President Donald Trump.

The Clintons tried this with the false “legal, safe, and rare” minor back-pedal that the left ditched quickly in a quiet backlash whereby the left’s real stance is “abortion on demand” and infanticide for botched late term abortions.
“We have to be manipulative chameleons.”
Their current alliance of the aggrieved isn’t quite big enough.
So Brooks only cares about getting votes, rather than their support for murdering babies. He’s no better than the rest of the Democrats.
Didn’t Schumer and another Congress member HIGH FIVE the blocking of the 20 week ban?
All they have to do is call themselves pro-choice, in favor of states rights: That the abortion issue should be taken away from the Feds and returned to the states as it was before 1973.
Do this, and remove the tax dollars from abortion and it will kill the Dems
So abortion up to 9 months wrong, not because its cruel, evil and inhuman, but because its hurting them politically. These people have no heart or compassion.
The Democrat Thug Party — the party of kill.
Wait. I thought Brooks is the conservative columnist at the NYT? Here he refers the the democrats position as our position. How can that be the case?
Typical dimmanazi attitude- Absolutely no concern for the life of the murdered, chopped-up and sold unborn, no concern for the soul of the murdering mommie, nothing else matters except "how many votes will this cost my side?" Says it all.
About 30 years ago Schumer was my congressman. There was a movement to have the feds pay for abortions. Mh wife and I wrote him, ptotedting being forced to pay for an act ee gound morally reprehensible and religiously a violation of our rights. He sent us a letter promising never to vote for a law that violated religious rights. Things change.
I do believe that Roe v. Wade will end up in the history books right next to the Dred Scott decision, a horrible pockmark where the court declared some people as being somehow less than human and thus entitled to no rights that was never accepted, and led to endless civil discord until overturned.
When did Brooks become a Democrat? I thought he was (just barely) a Republican.
This is the solution to most of the divisions in our country. STOP injecting the Federal government into things over which it has no rightful business. The Founders put the 10th Amendment there for a reason.
Yeah I think so too.
Yeah I just read about that. They’re despicable.
Well damn him to hell. Now the unborn are political pawns for their power.
The NY Times must have a lousy Dental Plan or David Brooks spends his spare time bonding with Beavers. (The ones who build Dams)
Something this evil was not commanded nor did it ever enter God’s mind.
