Second, I thought Rahm Emanuel gave us an opening in 2006 when forced to recruit pro-lifers to run in conservative districts so House Democrats might win back the majority. Could we germinate life in the Party of Death?

Thereafter I bolstered Democrat pro-lifers whenever I could in my writing. It was hard, but I tried to catch 'em being good.

We were on the brink of advancing abortion to an extent not seen since the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. The Supremes made it legal; socialized health care would make it much more available through regulations and much more affordable through public funding.

Republicans in the minority were basically helpless to stop it, but could the small Democratic pro-life band of brothers and sisters?
