Another interesting think in the story about Lincoln. Lincoln was a Whig, he was also anti-slavery, and hoped it would just go away. When it got worse and he started speaking out about it, he found the Whigs did not want to commit. The Democrats wanted to leave slavery as it was. The Republican Party was started because people were looking for a party that would take a stand against Slavery. Ironic enough that now the Republican Party takes a stand against Abortion because it is murder and the Democrats believe that it is OK. Then they try to convince women that they are for women and the Republicans are not. However, the resulting murders of babies, causes all kinds of problems for women after the abortion. Ironic no?
