A Consistent Pro-Choice Ethic

It occurred to me a couple days ago that Michigan's passage of right to work laws is a teachable moment for folks on the Left. It's giving them a great opportunity to cultivate a consistent Pro-Choice ethic.

We often hear about how so many conservatives are hypocrites for being "Pro-Life" when it comes to abortion, but favoring policies like the death penalty that clearly appear not to be Pro-Life. They need, we are told, to cultivate a consistent Pro-Life ethic. What we hear of less is how Liberals tend to be Pro-Choice only when it comes to sex and abortion. When it comes to other areas of life -- school choice, workplace choice, etc. -- they are downright, even vociferously, anti-Choice. The Michigan GOP has given Democrats a great chance to become truly Pro-Choice. This is a gift for them, really.

Embrace Choice, Dems!
