Giuliani's Choice (CAL THOMAS, May 15, 2007, Tribune Media Services, Inc.)

Imagine a Democrat telling his or her party what Mr. Giuliani said in his Houston speech: "If we don't find a way of uniting around broad principles that will appeal to a large segment of this country … we are going to lose this election." Would the Democratic Party drop its zealous support of abortion on demand, or its religious zeal over global warming, or its commitment to higher taxes and bigger government? No way. Only Republicans are supposed to compromise their principles and ignore — as liberals do — 40 million-plus dead babies.

If Mr. Giuliani believes this, how does he explain Ronald Reagan's two terms and the presidency of once pro-choice, but then pro-life, George H.W. Bush? The consistently pro-life position of the current President Bush did not keep him from winning two terms.

There is only one reason to "hate" abortion and that is that it ends a human life after it has begun, but before it has a chance to reach its potential. People who hated segregation did not sit back and, because of opposing views, do nothing to stop it.

Well, they actually did, but it was to their eternal discredit.
