In order to become president, [Obama] had to get the Democratic nomination. And in order to do that, he had to appease the party's feminists by supporting abortion all the way. And in order to do that, he had to ignore the actual demographics of abortion.
People on both sides talk abstractly, as if abortion were only a matter of the individual woman's isolated "choice." Yet this avoids some striking social disparities. Women who get abortions in this country are disproportionately black and Hispanic. The abortionists are overwhelmingly white and male.
