“We, of course, want to make abortion illegal,” said S.E. Cupp, a conservative commentator and co-host on CNN’s Crossfire. “We can’t be afraid to talk about that, but I think politically right now it’s probably more beneficial for our candidates to say, ‘Look, I’m not going to Washington to overturn decades-old legislation. I’m going to fight to keep abortion safe and rare.’ That’s how we get pro-life candidates elected and in positions of power to actually do something about abortion, to roll it back.”

In 1995, when he was part of the Pro Life Education Association, Lockman wrote in a letter, "If a woman has [the right to an abortion], why shouldn't a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist's pursuit of sexual freedom doesn't [in most cases] result in anyone’s death."

I'm catching up on Krugman's NYT blog and my mind got stuck on this. It's easy and lazy to invent personal faults as scapegoats for political policy and ideology that you don't like and don't understand. Building a model that analyzes and predicts that behavior is a little more involved than that.
