95-10 Initiative

I’ve been doing some thinking about Democrats for Life’s 95-10 Initiative. The short explanation (for those who don’t know) is that it seeks to reduce the number of abortions by 95% in 10 years.

  • Why doesn’t it seem to be getting much press? Is it because it doesn’t fit neatly into red vs. blue, right vs. left, conservative vs. liberal boilerplates?
  • Why doesn’t it seem popular among pro-life Republicans? If it’s just petty party politics, I might retch.
  • Why aren’t more pro-lifers (regardless of party) excited about it? A ban would be nice, but isn’t a drastic reduction better than status quo?
  • Why don’t more pro-choicers support it? What ever happened to "safe, legal and rare"?
