Michael New of the The National Review reports that "life" fared pretty well in the 2012 election. A taste:
...ballot measures dealing with
sanctity-of-life issues fared well on election day. First Montana voters
approved LR 120 by a nearly 2 to 1 margin. LR 120 would require
parental notification for a physician to perform an abortion on a minor
16 or younger. Past efforts to enact parental involvement laws in
Montana have been stymied by the courts. However, hopefully this
referendum will survive the inevitable court challenges.
In Massachusetts, Question 2 which would legalize physician-assisted
suicide was trailing 51 to 49 with 93 percent of the votes counted.
Physician-assisted suicide was approved by voters in Oregon, but has
thankfully spread to few other states since then. It was approved by
Washington State voters in 2008, and the Montana supreme court
effectively decriminalized physician-assisted suicide in 2009. However,
efforts to enact physician-assisted suicide at the ballot box failed in
Michigan in 1998 and in Maine in 2000. Massachusetts pro-lifers received
some help from some unexpected sources. The Boston Globe
editorialized against Question 2 as did Ted Kennedy’s widow. The fact
that an ideologically diverse coalition came together in Massachusetts
should give pro-lifers hope.
