"In Tim Pawlenty’s recent autobiography Courage to Stand, the word 'abortion' only appears once in nearly 300 pages sketching his life story and record as governor of Minnesota. Pawlenty blandly characterizes abortion as a 'lightning-rod issue associated with social policy,' and goes on only to say 'I’m pro-life.' This is the sort of book politicians write to introduce themselves to a national audience — but here and in most other speeches and interviews, Pawlenty seems reluctant to talk about his views on abortion."
