  •  I don't think ALEC cares. At least not now. (2+ / 0-)

    A little google search shows that they were once deep into the anti-abortion and anti-Equal Rights Amendment groups, now not so much - they got taken over by the corporatists.

    some of the organization's corporate sponsors had grown uncomfortable with its activism on social issues. They quoted a corporate government affairs officer (who asked not to be identified) as saying: "We like ALEC's conservatism and pro-business attitude. But abortion, school prayer, and the like are just not issues for us. We nod and accept the rest of it but we aren't supportive of it. You have to grin and bear it."  
    My impression is that right now they are in it for the $$$$$. Privatize all forms of government for their own personal enrichment, and take away from the citizens the tools to keep corporations in check. Put us all in perpetual thralldom to our corporate overlords.

    To them, abortion is a sideshow, a distraction from the real agenda.
