Carol Fowler & Democrats' Obsession With Abortion

For the hardcore left of the Democratic party--the wing of the party that controls party ideology & messaging--a woman is only a woman & and a feminist if she is pro-abortion.

As I wrote last week in my convention coverage, this is why the leftists are attacking Palin so vociferously--she threatens their narrow definition of feminism & female identity.

This attitude is reflected in recent comments by the South Carolina Democratic party chair:
Carol Fowler sharply attacked Sarah Palin today, saying John McCain had chosen a running mate " whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”
The latest battle in the culture war has been joined.
