If this thread is any indication, the pro life movement has an awful lot of catch-up work to do if it is to become truly relevant again.
The mocking of pro-life Democrats on display here is an indication that the pro life movement as it exists in America today is merely an adjunct of the Republican Party.
Very few aspersions like this are cast at the more than a few pro abortion Republicans.
It's very convenient I think for many conservatives to pretend that there is not pro-life sentiment among many democrats. I think it helps them justify refusing to compromise on hard-line right-wing positions to make progress toward saving the unborn.
You're right though about the double-standard for pro-life Republicans. Posters here quote Charles Krauthammer all the time when he's criticizing liberals as though he's "one of us." Krauthammer is pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, and irreligious. Why isn't he anathema?
