The day that both parties do this, we will know that we have won.
Until that day when both the Ds and the Rs stand for the sanctity of human life, things will just keep flipping back and forth and the only winners will be the back room power brokers and special interests. We cannot prevail with half the political power in this country united against us.
Abraham Lincoln said it best. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free.
Our job, if we are Dems, is to work to convert our party, and that work is a mountain. We need the prayers and support of all pro life people, everywhere if we are to succeed.
Until then, hat tip to my pro life brothers and sisters on the Republican side of the aisle. As we say here in Oklahoma, you done good.

WASHINGTON — The chairman of the Republican National Committee has delayed the start of the party’s annual winter meeting in order not to conflict with the 2014 March for Life in Washington.Chairman Reince Priebus told The Washington Times that there was “a real interest among a significant portion of our members to attend and support the Rally for Life.”
“This is a core principle of our party. It was natural for me to support our members and our principles,” he said.
Priebus, a Greek Orthodox lawyer from Wisconsin, decided to delay the start of the party meeting so that he and other committee members could attend the Jan. 22 event on the National Mall in downtown D.C. Party members told The Washington Times that such a delay is unprecedented.
Priebus said the Republican National Committee will charter a bus to and from the March for Life for those members who want to attend.
