Stop that meme...

Giuliani is coming out explicitly in favor of abortion rights. So let there be no doubt -- a vote for Giuliani is a vote for a candidate who facors unrestricted abortion.

Hopefully, this will be enough to derail his campaign. In anticipation of that, a meme is developing that it's not Giuliani's position on abortion that is costing him, but the clumsy way in which he has handled the issue.

This meme must be stopped. The Republican Party is interested in this, because they want to portray themselves as the "Big Tent" that includes people like Schwarzanegger, and that pro-choice views should not stop someone from winning the GOP nomination.

The problem with Giuliani's position isn't that he's been incosistent, evasive, and squirrely about it. The problem is it's wrong. Simple as that.

That the GOP can't bring itself to say this clearly, and hide behind these technical excuses doesn't give me much confidence in their ability to advocate for the unborn.
