Abortion, the Glue that Holds this Country Together!

I just had a delightful lunch with dear friends, one liberal, one conservative. My left-leaning friend recycled a bit of Lawrence O'Donnell's fevered secession theorizing. He furthered added the wrinkle that if Roe v. Wade is overturned in the Supreme Court, the logic of O'Donnell's "blue states subsidize red states" talk becomes overwhelming, and secession becomes a done deal. Forget the common heritage of political freedom, ordered liberty, free speech, etc. According to this train-wreck of thought, any Union that doesn't guarantee the right of doctors and pregnant women to suction the brains out of a 8-month fetus will be de-legitimized and seen as not worth defending.

I'm waiting for NARAL to grab the title of my post for a bumper sticker. Catchy, no?
