  •  But they won't suffer (0+ / 0-)

    Anti-gay, anti-Hispanic, and the long ago discredited anti-black, make a person seem like a hater.  Average people don't like haters, which is why Dems are doing well in national and state-wide elections in recent years (presidency and Senate).  

    But, to average people, you can be against abortion for deeply moral reasons.  Being against abortion doesn't make you a hater.  In fact, I know many people who are strongly against abortion, but they wouldn't vote for it to be illegal. And, some of them actually feel guilty about that position.

    So, while you are "mean" and a "hater" if you are against gays, or other minority groups, you can be principled and moral (if misguided) if you are anti-abortion.

    So, the Corporations have no fear of being on the wrong side of public opinion regarding abortion.
