...that legislation restricting abortion is too controversial and lacks public support--thus, we cannot make any incremental moves until we change the hearts of the people.
Consider this: The U.S. Senate is poised to pass a sweeping immigration bill that grants amnesty to millions of Mexicans who flagrantly break U.S. laws. The public outcry against the bill is gargantuan and yet key GOP senators are either determined to partner with Teddy Kennedy and push the bill through anyway or else they remain non-committal by voting for cloture. I'm talking about Senators like Lott, Bond, Burr, Coleman, Gregg, Cochran, Ensign, and Hatch, to name just a few.

I'm going to remember this moment, Senators, next time we need your help passing a pro-life bill.
