Why Did Ryan Seem to Compromise on Abortion?

by Steve Ray on October 15, 2012

A friend from the Philippines wrote and asked why Paul Ryan was compromising his Catholic faith and the issue of abortion during the debate. I wrote him the short paragraph. I hope that helps explain it.

“Yeti, there are a huge number of “middle ground people” called Independents. In order for the Republicans to woo them over to the conservative side, the Republicans need to present things in a more moderate way. It is the game of politics.

“Letting Obama win will expand abortion. Being moderate in their approach will help Romney win over the moderates. In the end they will then be in a position to work against abortion in America.”

Other’s comments are welcome.
