Abortion, Casey & confusion...

Within one of the other posts on here this morning the ol' Robert Casey and the 1992 Democratic Convention issue came up. Robert Casey was -- of course -- a well known Pro-lifer. He was not allowed to speak at the 1992 convention. Casey and others claimed that the reason he was not allowed to speak was because he was pro-life. Clinton campaign officials said then and maintain that the only reason Casey was not allowed to speak was because he refused to endorse Clinton for President (Casey refused because Clinton was Pro-Choice). But, Casey and his supporters have always pointed out that Jerry Brown had famously refused to endorse or support Clinton but was allowed to speak at the convention (and he's pro-choice). So that issue seems to never die.
But it seems as if both parties are embroiled in abortion still and confusion for BOTH parties seems to be the result. Perhaps as both parties appear mired in confusion on this issue this issue really offers neither party any advantage. Read the very interesting article linked below:
