You are blogging again! Is there a particular politician you are refering to here? Because I promise you that these "handwringing" politicians all have constituents who are pro-forced-pregnancy and yet neither elderly nor male. I don't think it would be wise for any political figure to completely ignore the VERY strong emotions on both sides of this particular issue.

Taking the approach of sympathizing with the anti-choicer's emotions, and then leveraging those emotions to advocate making abortions rare by promoting birth control seems smart. Not only will you both blunt one of the favored wedge issues of the right, but also will build consensus around smart pro-birth-control policies.
