Thank the Pro-Life Movement for the Defeat of ObamaCare

"Indeed, more than anything else, the conflict over abortion funding is responsible for the delay, and quite possibly the eventual defeat, of Obamacare."

Michael J. New has a timely and encouraging article at NRO about the strong comeback the pro-life movement made in 2009. New discusses the increased public support of pro-life positions and minor pro-life gains even within the Democrat Party but concentrates most of his commentary on the surprising effectiveness of pro-lifers in opposing the various Democrat schemes to sneak abortion (and abortion funding) into health care reform. Interesting reading.
