We continue our survey of election reactions with a commentary from Douglas Johnson, legislative director of the National Right to Life Committee.
I hasten to point out that the views he expresses are not shared by me, but when I solicit these submissions I promise to print them without editing.
Still, I will allow myself the comment that the right-to-life movement is in trouble when its spokespeople demonstrate such acute harshness to people with whom they agree on 98 percent of the issues. It costs nothing to be mangnanimous in victory.
That said, I admire Mr. Johnson's commitment to the defense of the unborn enormously and believe it is a credit to his organization, as it is to the Catholic Church, that no matter how long the odds, he and we have not abandoned the effort to call our nation's attention to the evil of abortion in our midst.
I may quibble with his analysis and his methods, but I do not quibble with his cause.
