Did I Miss Something?

Kathleen Parker wrings her hands over Bart Stupak’s terrible, horrible betrayal of the pro-life movement (and I’m pretty sure she’s not the only one):

Poor Bart Stupak. The man tried to be a hero for the unborn, and then, when all the power of the moment was in his frail human hands, he dropped the baby. He genuflected when he should have dug in his heels and gave it up for a meaningless executive order.

Now, in the wake of his decision to vote for a health-care bill that expands public funding for abortion, he is vilified and will forever be remembered as the guy who Stupaked health-care reform and the pro-life movement.

(…)

Alas, Stupak couldn’t hold.

Ultimately, he was weak and overwhelmed by raw political power. History is no stranger to such moments, but this one needs to be understood for what it was. A deception.

You would think from all this moaning and lamenting that the healthcare reform bill means free abortions for everybody, not the eventual end of insurance coverage for them.

It’s a strange world we live in.  The anti-choice people won big and act like they lost; the public-option people lost big and act like they won.

    What’s so strange about that? It seems like every time one side wins, the other has to claim victory, and the side that wins has to warn everyone that the fight is by no means over, so keep those contributions coming.
