No Return


What kind of “pro-life Democrat” is Bill Ritter, the Democratic candidate for governor in Colorado, anyway? He says he is opposed to abortion and wants to reduce the abortion rate, but won’t try to enact restrictions on abortion in state law. Based on Amy Sullivan’s New Republic article, he may not want Roe overturned (although it may be that he just doesn’t want to fight a losing battle to get the Democrats to end their support for Roe). This position sounds exactly like those of Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. The only difference I can see is that Ritter doesn’t say he “supports abortion rights” or is “pro-choice.” Which doesn’t seem like much.
