Over the years, the facts put together in this little article have sometimes crossed my mind-- what a strange history abortion politics has had. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2014/03/hobby_lobby_and_contraception_how_conservative_evangelicals_went_from_not.html There are so many odd things that have changed -- first, that today, the actual science doesn't matter, it is their belief about the science that matters. Second, that corporations now have personhood-like rights. Third, abortion, back in the day, was the an issue for the Catholic Church, but, although different Protestants had their own ideas or feelings, it just wasn't the issue of the day, but today, it is a great wrong. Fourth, and to me this is the most disturbing, really-- back then, it was the Catholic Church that was consciously, by design you might say, authoritarian, but, many Protestant churches were decidedly not. Today, Baptists, who actually helped create the separation of church and state doctrine, are playing a leading role in the Fundamentalist/Authoritarian political movement. The strange swapping of various roles and ideas in the last 50 years has everything to do with politics, and, the sequence of events as I remember it is pretty much the same as in this article. I guess if you were born after 1984 or so it has always been this way as far as you know.
