In Michele St. Martin’s opinion piece on Republicans and the abortion issue, she writes: “If you are pro-choice and identify with the Republican Party, I urge you to become involved. Your voice, your vote, and your activism are needed.”
A commenter on the story is skeptical. “My 10-year experience with the MNGOP has left me with the view that it’s extremely difficult for a pro-choice (or pro-gay-civil-union) member of the Republican party to advance to any stage of leadership in this state, let alone delegate to the RNC. Indeed it can be difficult at times even to keep hold on one’s very credibility once word of such a ‘liberal’ stance gets out.”
