So what exactly happens in that 4 week span to make a fetus a baby? What significant biological change has occured in that 4 week span?
I agree with everything you say. Nevertheless it is also true that conservatives are a minority within the Republican party.
Money is the standard excuse. Dig deeper. If conservatives had a sufficient number of votes to get a conservative nominated, money would not be a deciding factor would it? The conclusion is that conservatives are a minority in the GOP. This does not mean they should be insulted, though.

You answer your own question. "Just because people have or should have a right to specify their own medical treatment (when, where, how), doesn't mean they will all pick the "right" treatment." Why would a mother not want the best possible care for the birth of her child? Answer: Because she's more concerned for herself and her experience than her child. Should the government require a birth be done in a hospital? No. Does that change the fact that they should be done in a hospital? No.
And support who? A third party? That will only elect more Democrats. As you said: Political reality is hard. Accept it - it is in your face.

Right, you reduce the number of votes for the Republican. At the same time, you reduce the number of votes the Democrat needs to win. Both of these effects are inseparable.

But the problem is you can't separate your opposition to the Republican from the benefit that it has for the Democrat. More simply, you cannot hurt the Republican without helping the Democrat.

Exactly. If you don't support the Republicans you are supporting the Democrats.

Cruz is definitely not a tactician. This will dog him if/when he tries to run for President.
