    Roe v Wade isn't going anywhere.

    Let's be honest here: How many Presidents have their been against abortion? How many court justices have gone in and out of SCOTUS against it? How many times have pro-life advocates been in a majority or near majority in Congress?

    And yet, while people talk this big game being pro-life it ends up just falling right into the depths of obscurity as soon as they are elected or another issue comes along.

    People are going about it all wrong- lazily just trying to change the law and shoehorn some sort of enforcement when they ought to be focusing on other, more effective ways of dissuading women to want to abort in the first place. They all come to regret it at some point and it solves nothing, so it's not like there aren't other ways to reduce abortion.

    It is my belief that we have not done everything that we could do. What needs to be done and we should do it. The issue is making a commitment such as to run for President. Someone needs to do it. We have been close. As for pro-life it is good but what about the punishment when abortion occurs or when there is adultery, etc... the things that are violations of the law when a person also wants to get an abortion. Otherwise it is the abortion alone that is the crime.
