Wisconsin Right to Life issued a press release stating that the numbers of abortions in Wisconsin declined in 2005. Regardless of what the extreme right thinks, the vast majority of progressives celebrate such a decline.
My only question is when will Wisconsin Right to Life endorse Jim Doyle? After all, it was on his watch that abortions have gone down. Rather than thank Doyle they somehow pat themselves on the back for this statistic.
Statistics seem to show quite a strange pattern that defies all right wing talking points. On the national level, we saw a major drop in abortions all through the years that Clinton was president. Then, ironically, when George W. Bush moved into the White House the trend reversed itself nationally. That's right. Mr. "Culture of Life" reversed the trend and we saw a steady increase in the number of abortions.
Did Wisconsin Right to Life or any of it's national counterparts endorse Clinton?Nope, they would consider that an abomination. Will they endorse Doyle? Silly question. So what's the deal? Enthusiastically endorse the guy that has the worst record while fiercly opposing the ones that help to improve the situation? It makes one wonder if rhetoric and naked ideology mean more to them than actual results.
