A Fighting Retreat on Abortion

My take on the Notre Dame speech is at the Washington Post site. “President Obama’s speech at Notre Dame yesterday is another sign that pro-lifers are slowly winning the political battles over abortion. It was not the speech of a man who is confident that his position is right and popular. It was the speech of someone who is trying to minimize a problem–which is what the association with abortion assuredly is for the Democratic party. . . .”
