    If abortion were illegal it would increase the size the of the unpropertied, teeming horde. An excess of poor people would most likely provide more votes to the forces seeking to undo private property rights and redistribute the wealth.

    I think that, if one were really looking at socialist theory through socialist eyes, abortion would be a great way for the government to control the demographics of the population. Even the founder of Planned Parenthood said as much.

    But if one wants to redistribute the wealth by convincing voters to vote to redistribute the wealth it would benefit them to have lots of poor voters. There would be more poor voters if abortion were illegal.

    You think the left cares about population control? Why don't they care about illegal mexicans flooding across the border? the left only cares about controlling the population of the bourgeoise (rich people).

    Hard working people with a modicum of succes must be kept in the minority so they can be exploited, like hamsters on the wheel.

    Communists have never cared about votes nor voters. They take what they want by force or deception.

    But converting a democracy to socialism/ near communism requires voters who vote that way.

    No it doesnt. It needs lawyers and disregard to the proper position of the courts.

    I think serious communists would take both approaches in case one fails. It's obvious the left doesn't really care about population control, and that they want more poor person voters. This is why they won't close the border. Most people accept that dems won't close the borders because they want poor voters and the republicans won't close them because they want cheap labor, right?

    I think a certain portion of the judicial branch is pretty close to this, definitely in certain issues. Why else isn't partial-birth abortion illegal now? The majority of the people support a ban on this, the Congress has passed the law several times, and now the courts are tossing it out. They have trumped the legislative process in this case, a small coup.
