Sigh...Okay, can we put to rest the lie that men and women have different attitudes about abortion? It may seem intuitively true, but empirically it just isn't. (See Morris Fiorina's "Culture War?" - I'd link to it if I knew how to in comment threads). While there are certainly religious and geographic divides on this issue, it is simply not true that women are likely to be any more pro-choice than men. Now, some pro-choice women may be more PASSIONATE about the subject than pro-choice men (something I expect to be true), but in the aggregate, men and women are not different in statistically significant ways.

So no, I don't think being a "man" compromised him on this issue.

I completely agree.
