    Thomas Frank hit it when he said that the RWRs found the perfect tool to advance thier ideology in the rabid anti-abortion crowd.  Those people need to be reminded over & over & over that there are millions of already-born babies and children that need their help.  They need to justify to the rest of us how they can ignore the plight of the already born.  
    There are plenty of us religious folks out here that are angry that the RWRs have hijacked the term 'religious'.  The day after the election our Interfaith group met and re-named an upcoming workshop "Larger Family Values".  Anyone who shows up thinking they're in for gay-bashing and keeping women barefoot & pregnant is in for plenty of discussion on real moral values - compassion, inclusion, peace.  By all means, write to newspapers - anytime so-called 'moral issues' come up & re-frame.
    Unfortunately, the tide will turn for the worst of reasons:  people love their own children.  When more & more of those children come home in caskets the predominately low & middle income mothers will do what we did in the 60s and start standing up to the Crusaders.
