Goldberg on Abortion and the Party of Death

In a recent column for the Los Angeles Times, Jonah Goldberg discusses abortion, Ramesh Ponnuru's book (The Party of Death) and the book detractors.
"But once religious views are declared illegitimate — a stance that would have surprised Martin Luther King Jr. — any unwelcome position can be branded "religious" and therefore out of bounds. Ponnuru scrupulously sticks to nonreligious arguments. But that hasn't stopped critics from charging that his motives are unacceptably religious, while others have complained that he is too coldly rational. It seems Ponnuru's real sin isn't how he says things but that he says them at all."
