Although the mainstream media will want to report the Democrat’s single-minded focus on abortion as a great electoral success, and as evidence that America is pro-abortion, the reality is much more complex.
The combination of gigantic fundraising disparities in favor of abortion, overwhelming media bias against pro-lifers, and weak to non-existent pro-life leadership from political and religious figures makes any larger reading of the election results unreliable at best.
The reality is that America is deeply divided on cultural issues. The cultural left has taken power over most institutions and if politics is downstream from culture, the future for social conservatives is not a bright one. However, all is not lost, as social conservatives continue to hold the line preventing the left’s atheistic values from becoming the undisputed status quo, at lest for now.
