Hey Max, I'm actually a member of the Labor Party and even part of a little internal economic thinktank we've got going in the NY chapter. So even though I think their position on abortion sucks, I'm not trashing anything.

And from what I hear, the LP took its wimpy position on abortion mainly to placate the head of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee, who is personally very religious.
