What Akin Should Have Said

by Ramesh Ponnuru

I contribute to a New York Times “Room for Debate” feature today.

NRO’s editorial today, on the press’s double standards about abortion “extremism,” is also worth reading. One point worth adding: The Democratic platform includes support for abortion “regardless of ability to pay”: a coded but clear endorsement of taxpayer funding, which is not a position most Americans take. Anyone expect that extremism to get coverage?
