Stop Making It About Abortion, Abortion Will Never Be Illegal Folks.

I am going to probably get some hate mail over this post but what’s new. I am so sick of these Supreme Court Nominations coming down to nothing more than what does he think about Roe vs Wade, as if it is the most important issue facing this country.

The media and Democrats loves to target the abortion issue during these hearings because they know that it is one of the few issues that the majority of Americans agree with them on.

Just so you know I am a pro life kind of guy in my personal life. I would never promote anyone to have an abortion but I am not obsessed with it. It is not a political goal for me to overturn Roe vs. Wade. Why is that? Because what have you accomplished by over turning Roe vs. Wade? Nothing, all you accomplish is placing the issue back with the states and state legislatures and since most people support a woman’s right to choose most states will make it legal within there state. Oh, sure, there will be a few states that will outlaw abortion. All that accomplishes is to make it difficult for poor women to travel to another state to get the procedure done. This will result in more children being born to woman who don't want them, and can't raise them properly. For the rest, it will simply be a matter of traveling to the neighboring state where the procedure remains legal.

I know this is comes as shocking and bad news for those of you who are obsessed with being pro life, but once again, repeat after me: Abortion will never be illegal throughout the United States, even if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

Give it up, folks. There are issues we face in this country that are far, far more important than abortion. Let's concentrate on things such as the rule-of-law, private property rights, and the right to bear arms. Kelo vs. New London is far more important to Americans than Roe v. Wade.
