hrmm.. interesting // linkage

I hadn't considered this before, though it's clear enough that I'm suprised at my lack of contemplation on the topic. Sure, the numbers used are purely speculative, but that's a given when playing "what if" games.

what if all the aborted babies were alive and voting today?
Summary: Democrats tend to have more abortions than Republicans, children tend to take on the political views of their parents/familly, hence the Pro-choice platform traditionally associated with the democratic party has hurt the future political success of the democratic party.
Warning: seems to take on a "oh look at the silly liberals, shooting themselves in the foot" tone.

All statistics and partisan ideology aside, it's an interesting topic to consider. What if all those potential voters were alive today, would anything be different?
