True Confessions (from the Washington Post)

(The highest praise that can be won, is for an avowed adversary to publicly concede that you might be on to something. Witness this gem from -- DLA)

Washington Post columnist Robert McCartney was one of the few mainstream media reports to show any appreciation for the March for Life. Here is an excerpt from his story: “I went to the March for Life rally Friday on the Mall expecting to write about its irrelevance. Isn't it quaint, I thought, that these abortion protesters show up each year on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, even though the decision still stands after 37 years. What's more, with a Democrat in the White House likely to appoint justices who support abortion rights, surely the Supreme Court isn't going to overturn Roe in the foreseeable future. How wrong I was. The antiabortion movement feels it's gaining strength, even if it's not yet ready to predict ultimate triumph, and Roe supporters (including me) are justifiably nervous. In this case, I was especially struck by the large number of young people among the tens of thousands at the march. It suggests that the battle over abortion will endure for a long time to come.

Hiw refreshing to have the Washington Post print such a positive account of the March.
