Yuval Levin’s Pro-Pledge Case
by

Since I’ve written critically of the Pledge, for the sake of evenhandedness I’ll highlight Yuval Levin’s strong defense, which starts with a very reasonable observation about the Pledge’s pro-life plank: 

The first thing that strikes me (especially in comparing this Pledge to the Contract With America) is how much progress pro-lifers have made both in the arena of public opinion and the intra-Republican debate on the abortion question. The Contract avoided the subject like the plague. This document speaks plainly of a commitment to human life several times, lists abortion funding as a key reason for repealing Obamacare, and promises a government-wide Hyde Amendment. We haven’t been able to move the courts, and so there is much work to be done in combating this most grave injustice of our time (and not much that can be done by Congress, alas) but progress is progress, and this is definitely progress.
