Michael Wear: "The Abortion Debate Is No Longer About Policy"

Abortion politics in 2019 is a morality play about what happens when one side has all the political power, yet feels culturally embattled. In this atmosphere, victories are not satisfying if they leave the other side with a foothold, a vestige of respectability. Cataclysmic discord lies ahead.
And, he argues: each side thinks it's culturally embattled.
It's hard for me to see how the left feels that way today; in the past, it was true, so feeling thusly was understandable. But it certainly seems to me that the left is, now, way in the driver's seat, culturally speaking.
