Re: “Scott Fights Abortion Attack, But Is He Playing Into Democrats' Hands?

That gubernatorial candidate, Phil Scott, is being eviscerated by Planned Parenthood for his impure position on abortion is hardly a shocker. As a former Vermonter of 55 years, it's apparent that not much has changed. Group-think lives. Your article accurately notes that VT is way out of the mainstream, and I can attest to that with a whole new perspective, now living elsewhere. This article brings back some memories. In 1989, after the Supreme Court Webster decision, the Burlington Free Press published a scathing opinion about the nation's impending return to the back alley. But in a brief shining moment of balance and fairness, the paper allowed a dissenting "pro-life" opinion to be written as well. The next day, there was a violent takeover of the newspaper offices, complete with angry drums, screams for the editor (head on a platter, presumably), and mob vandalism around town. This in response to blatant freedom of speech and balance! I also remember the legendary day when Patrick Leahy had to take a long walk in the woods in order to find the courage to oppose the barbaric partial-birth abortion procedure. Struggle and angst. What nonsense! He was probably scared to death. Mr. Scott is a good man. Planned Parenthood and the thought-police in Vermont will take anyone down for sport, and they can do it because they have huge coffers. Get back on the issues, and listen to what Phil Scott wants to do for the Vermont economy. Muster the courage to step outside of the nonsense that is driven by these tired, angry forces, and listen carefully to his ideas on the real issues that hold a state together. With Phil Scott in charge, maybe some of us life-long Vermonters could afford to return!
