    republican babies born everyday in the South.  And, a lot of female republican babies as well.

    Truth is that most people (Dems and Republicans) are a lot more empathetic when something impacts them directly.  

    You can have a gay son and still think homosexuality is abnormal or "wrong".  That doesn't mean you want to disown your son.  Your daughter can have an abortion, and you can still think it's wrong (which is why I don't believe most republicans really want abortion to be illegal).  Sometimes life forces us to have to accept or live with things we hate (war, for instance, or on a lesser scale, taxes), because they are, on balance, the best thing for us.
