It is interesting to see the difficulty the Democratic Party is having from the pro-life constituency within its ranks. I would have thought the Democrats would have been more solid as a pro-choice party. It is interesting to see the struggle they have with a big tent.
The Republicans have been struggling with this for years and has struggled with disparate constituencies with strong litmus tests. I believe that if the Republicans tried to undo Roe v Wade that they would find an even bigger and more vocal pro-choice constituency within their ranks.
The Democrats have had strong dissents within its ranks, but they are more likely than the Republicans to set aside their differences when the vote is at hand.
We will see if that holds true today with the House Health Care vote.
