The last pro-life Democrat on a national ticket has died. R. Sargent Shriver, 1972 running mate of the best Democratic nominee since Al Smith, was an admirer of Catholic Worker founder and saint-to-be Dorothy Day and an active member in 1940-41 of College Men for Defense First, which merged with the America First Committee, the largest antiwar organization in American history. A seamless garment Democrat: oh, for more of these.
