Many pro-lifers are excited and happy with Scott Brown’s Senate victory in Massachusetts. Some are declaring comprehensive health care reform dead, others think a chastened Democrat Party will compromise and put forth a more reasonable reform bill. In reality, no one knows what is going to happen. My fear is that the Democrats will move with incremental steps on health care that still have some anti-life measures in it or that will open the door to future anti-life measures and that because the changes aren’t sweeping or don’t clearly incorporate abortion funding, there will be less resistance. Ironically, the Republican victory in Massachusetts could make a national, socialized, anti-life health care system possible by forcing the Democrats to bring it in by stealth and in piecemeal.
