For women’s vote, Eleanor Clift says: Clinton asked are you for me or the issues I stand for? Overturning Roe will now come up. How will she perform - like Dan Quayle and not up to it or dazzle us and make us think she can step in?
I've never understood why abortion is the one and only issue for some women; especially those past child bearing age.
First, we went through Reagan, Bush I and Bush II administrations. They were all allegedly pro life and despite 20 of the last 28 years of these pro life candidates, Roe v Wade still stands. It's not going anywhere.
Second, even if Roe V. Wade is overturned, a woman will still be able to chop up the baby in her womb at anytime because states will never be able to place significant abortion restrictions into law.
See, right now it's easy to be pro life because the you can always blame abortion on the Supreme Court. If, by some act of God, it's overturned, many of those "pro life" elected officials are going to be hiding in corners.
Third, if you are a woman that holds this issue so dearly and you are absolutely certain that you do not want a baby. I have an idea, don't get pregnant in the first place. If you can take the time and energy to worry about your elected officials taking away your "right", you have more than enough energy to avoid a pregnancy in the first place.
Maybe a woman past child bearing age can clue me in on why they'd vote for a pro abortion male over a pro life woman.
