"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Abortion Rights in Latin America - New York Times

Abortion Rights in Latin America - New York Times: "Abortion is legal on demand in the region only in Cuba, and a few other countries permit it for extreme circumstances, mostly when the mother's life is at risk, the fetus will not live or the pregnancy is the result of rape."

And what is the mortality rate there for women receiving abortions?

I don't thinks this speaks to "decriminalizing" abortion, one it's legal here (US), even though it isn't in the Constitution and two, maybe the "gag rule" should be lifted to allow education.

Abortion is only a first option if that is what is pushed and it always appears that abortion and abortion only is what is pushed by "pro-choicers."

Personally I find it a pretty weak case as an example.
