Naive I'm not; although I sometimes wish I were. I knew before 2015 that Trump didn't give a darn about the GOP and was only using it for his own ends. Now the party's split in two, and lot of us haven't voted for the top of the ticket in years.
But the pro-lifers aren't MAGA. These folks believe in their heart of hearts that abortion is murder, and they're 100% correct that abortion ends a separate life that, if allowed to grow, would become a living, laughing baby.
I am personally pro-life, and politically pro-choice. No, I don't think that's a contradiction. Abortion is a moral horror, but the way to minimize it is the hard work of persuasion, of appeal to conscience, of providing tangible support to women stuck between a rock and a hard place, pregnant with no partner or a partner insisting she "take care of" the problem.
All of that takes commitment, and hard work, and resources. It's the easy way out to punt and insist that government solve things by banning abortion, and by depriving as a matter of law a woman's choice whether and when to reproduce.
The right of self-determination may not be set forth in the Constitution, but it's as God-given and essential a right as any. Telling women who've had the right of reproductive self-determination for their entire adult lives that the right will henceforth be denied, for themselves and their daughters, is quite the political motivator, as we've been seeing for the last two election cycles.
Those of us who are pro-life need to recognize that the cause is just, but can't be pinned on government. We must do the difficult work ourselves, through churches and volunteer efforts, and one on one if necessary, and always with empathy, to persuade folks of the humanity of the unborn child, and to CHOOSE to do the right thing.
