Pro-choice Groups May Drop 'Choice' in Abortion Debate
The Democratic think tank Third Way - run by the same strategists who moved the party to the center on the gun issue - is crafting new message and policy ideas to help Democrats appeal to Red State voters on abortion, Newsweek reports in the current issue.
Lakoff advised focusing on reducing unwanted pregnancies and suggested that the groups talk about "personal freedom," a phrase intended to evoke unpopular government intrusion into matters like the Schiavo case.
Other suggestions that came from this meeting:
Murder will now be called "Involuntary Heaven attendance."
Prostitution will be called "I'm a single mother supporting my children."
Drug use will be called "Reducing the amount of narcotics on the market."
And theft will be called "Supporting those less fortunate."
This is Democrat strategy, when their position is unpopular with voter they don't change it, they just change the way they market it. Killing babies as birth control is not something that you can make palatable with some slick packaging, we still know it's wrong.
