The old joke goes, "Once black, never back." Well my spin is "Once abort, you're in the cohort" Once you've crossed the line into an abortion, or know friends who have had abortions, or have been the sperm donor to a female who was obliged to have an abortion, you're pretty much hooked into the lib thinking system, because the only alternative is to believe you just killed your own child.
And the longer liberalism persists, the bigger this problem grows because one of the fundamental arguments of conservatives becomes more and more unbearable to contemplate -- that you are part of a movement that has killed 50 (soon to be 55, then 60) million babies for NO REAL REASON!
And that is why liberals have to shred the past and all previous norms of decency and even reason itself. Because as long any of these things stand, liberals stand accused of perpetrating one of the ghastliest crimes in all of history.
