Left Clings to Abortion in Desperate Anti-Romney Strategy

Is the left getting truly desperate as the election enters its last days?

One issue being raised with increasing frequency--abortion--would indicate this is the case. A Vice President, Hollywood stars, and now a left-wing lawyer are all trying to scare people on the issue they care most about. Now the left always brings up abortion, and any objective analysis would show they are more obsessed with the issue than even the most committed pro-lifer on the right. To some on the left, abortion on demand is almost sacramental.

Joe Biden was asked about abortion and his faith during the vice presidential debate and tried to claim he was both pro-life and deeply committed to abortion on demand.

"With regard to abortion, I accept my Church’s position on abortion as a de fide doctrine. Life begins at conception. I accept that position in my personal life. But I refuse to impose it on equally devout Christians, and Muslims and Jews," Biden said during the debate. 

Had he ended his answer there, it would have been a respectable answer for a man who says he defines himself by his Catholic faith, but instead he went on.

"The next president will get one or two Supreme Court nominations. That’s how close Roe v. Wade is. Just ask yourself, with Robert Bork being the chief adviser to the court for Mr. Romney, who do you think he’s likely to appoint? Do you think he’s likely to appoint someone like Scalia or someone else on the court, far right, that would outlaw abortion? I suspect that would happen," Biden said.

How does a man that says he accepts life begins at conception then turn around and fear monger over what a court might do? It is fear mongering at its best, and Americans can expect plenty more of it in the next few weeks.

Last week came the video from some of Hollywood's most charming beauties warning women across America against Mitt Romney on "women's issues." Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria, and Kerry Washington joined forces with MoveOn.org to warn women that Romney will ruin their lives.

Now we have Gloria Allred and her "October surprise," an apparent claim against Mitt Romney that he counseled a woman against having an abortion. The horror of it all, Romney, acting as a bishop in his church, advising a fellow church member to consider adoption instead of abortion. What a monster Romney must be!

Of course, as Breitbart readers know, this is not a new story.

That the left is willing to raise the issue of abortion is no surprise; they have tried to use it as a trump card for decades now. What is surprising, and what shows their desperation, is that they are willing to stoop this low at this point in the campaign

The only questions that remain--will the American people deem Romney unelectable for preferring adoption to abortion? And will Obama's cheerleaders in the media run with this or see it as another sign of a campaign on the wrong track?
