OpinionJournal - The Case Against Compromise

Peter Berkowitz reviews Ramesh Ponnuru's new book, A Party of Death--and in the process speaks more volumes about himself than about Mr. Ponnuru or his book--or about those of us who agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Ponnuru.

Mr. Berkowitz sums up by saying that lines between pro-abortion and pro-life cannot be drawn very brightly, and that one cannot defend the pro-life position. He even suggests that these lines can shift over time. Sorry, but it doesn't work that way. You either condone murder, or you don't. And if you don't, then you must prosecute it to the fullest extent of the law. Otherwise, you're throwing in with Peter Singer, who said that a mother ought to be allowed one month to decide whether to kill her baby or keep him or her. Or with Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), who famously said that a child isn't a child until the mother decides to bring said child home.
