Abortion Politics

Posted By on Wed, Apr 23, 2008 at 3:20 PM

Christian conservatives are trying again to recast their abortion fight in Tennessee. First, it was an attempt to change the state constitution to allow what they called commonsense restrictions on abortion rights, such as waiting periods and informed consent. But when Senate Democrats produced a bill to do just that, Republicans killed it. Now, as this YouTube video shows, abortion foes have decided it's all about stopping partial birth abortions, which of course are already banned by federal law. What it's really all about is politics. Republicans would love to stick an abortion referendum on the 2010 ballot to boost turnout for the next governor's election.
