Most pro-lifers, leaders and followers, are politically naïve. Our obvious lack of success is the only proof of what we need.

Our 45 million Hispanic Americans exercise almost decisive influence over the shape of immigration law. Our 40 million African Americans define the parameters of our national conversation about race and helped elect one of their own as president. Our 40 million senior Americans have made social security the third rail of American politics — no one dares touch it. Fewer than six million Jewish Americans (with a huge assist, to be sure, from millions of Evangelical Christians) have made unwavering support of Israel almost a precondition of capturing and holding public office in the United States.

Yet, the 75 to 100 million Americans who consider themselves pro-life were almost irrelevant in last year’s presidential contest. Nor can they point to a strong caucus in the Congress. The national media will label anyone as extremist anyone who opposes abortion in cases of rape or incest.
