...especially if they work together to propose legislation that will stand court tests, figure out what kind of jurists would be most likely to overturn Roe V. Wade (my guess is "jurist with tight view of 4th Amendment not including general privacy"), and work to collect data on what pro life activists are doing to make the plight of pregnant women easier.  

Or it could be nasty if a plurality of views expressed are to try for "Hail Mary" legislation that won't past court muster while ignoring the need to demonstrate that pro-life people really do care for unwed mothers in a way pro-choice people do not.  Time will tell.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

I've often wondered why the pro life groups don't work together more. But I know part of the answer is a clash of perspectives on how to achieve progress. Frequently idealists insist on everything they want now or nothing at all. "Incrementalists" maybe aim too low, but actually do achieve forward motion. Glad to see a bit of cooperation in Iowa.

Aaron, this sounds like you agree with the pragmatic approach to politics.  Welcome to the club!

"Why don't pro-life groups work together more?"

I've been told more than once that a true fundamentalist shouldn't participate in pro-life activities because it involved being unequally yoked together with unbelievers followed by the Jehoshaphat/Ahab alliance sermon.
