Mother Teresa once said "the fruit of abortion is nuclear war." One could just dismiss this as saintly hyperbole from a woman more expert at caring for the woefully impoverished than at analyzing global politics.
Yet if one were to claim that the fruit of abortion is the Iraq War, one could make a considerable argument in its favor. Had the Democrats not gone so radically pro-abortion, they might have retained enough political, moral, and spiritual strength to avert the invasion of Iraq.
One might mention this the next time some peacenik starts squawking about seamless garments and the shallowness of one-issue politics.
