Response to DFW (Reply #32)

35. Exactly, DFW!

I have relatives in Scranton. A large Irish Catholic family. My (late) aunt and uncle were university professors and party activists. My aunt was a delegate at numerous Democratic Conventions. I remember staying there as a kid; one neighbor was the governor, and his son -- now a Senator -- played with my cousins.

The older people were all anti-abortion. I can't say about their position 50 years ago, but they were not anti-choice when we talked politics when I was a young adult. They were strongly in favor of sex education in schools, and in making birth control available to all.
