"Government has no place in the wombs of women, period. As a woman, the only parties I will ever vote for are those that recognize I'm a fully functioning human being with an autonomous right to choose what I do with my own body. Anything else would be stupid and self-defeating. (And it has nothing, really, to do with abortion, which I've never had and don't plan on having either.)"
That is — by a very wide margin — the top-voted comment at a NYT op-ed "To Win Again, Democrats Must Stop Being the Abortion Party." The op-ed, by Thomas Groome, a theology and religion education professor, is not as unsubtle as the headline makes it sound. Here's the last line: "If Democrats want to regain the Catholic vote, they must treat abortion as a moral issue, work for its continued reduction and articulate a more nuanced message than, 'We support Roe v. Wade.'"
The headline is the NYT's responsibility, and it actually is very weird. Groome never uses the expression "the Abortion Party," and his main topic is the Catholic vote, not pro-life voters in general. He uses the word "Catholic" 21 times. Why isn't "Catholic" in the headline?!
