Do Conservatives Now Have To Start Rolling the "R"?

I don't usually steal stories from Best of the Web, assuming that you all would have already read them their. This story on a new Nicaraguan ban on all abortions, even when the actual health of the mother is threatened, is too delicious to ignore:
Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega, who was a supporter of abortion rights as a young revolutionary, has said he has become a devout Roman Catholic and now opposes abortion.

Ortega's socialist government of the 1980s had a contentious relationship with the Catholic church, but Ortega recently has established warm ties with leading church figures in Nicaragua.
So now Kerry and Harkin are figuratively, as well as literally, to the left of Ortega.
