Before Obergefell, gay-marriage activists labeled those against their cause as hateful, bigoted, and obstructing not just their way of life but their ability to express their identity in a legally protected manner. In a way, Obergefell’s decision confirmed these complaints.
Yet in light of the wholly abhorrent, increasingly ghoulish series of videos Center for Medical Progress is slowly releasing from its undercover work on Planned Parenthood, the cultural debate on the standard controversial issues, especially among conservatives, has reached an historic low.

They’ve become a modern abolition movement that echoes that of William Wilberforce’s campaign to end slavery.
