You know....abortion was THE issue for "one issue voters" for decades.
That's a nice reply, but what I am saying that a lot of GOP voters were voting on ONE issue. If you take away that issue - will they continue to vote GOP. My exes aunt was one of them - hated Republican policies, but voted GOP in presidential elections for the SC choices. Now that it looks like it's Mission Accomplished - will they continue to vote for GOP? Especially when their other social views were more on the liberal side. It will be interesting to see if overturning Roe V Wade ends up hurting the GOP in the long run. It's kind of like Obamacare....if they would have overturned Obamacare, they wouldn't have had much to run on for the past 13 years.For Democrats it was THE issue because they are used to fear mongering.... and they also knew Roe was decided on shaky ground to begin with and ripe for being overturned.
From what I've seen, the only people that abortion fear mongering whipped up is white liberals... It's not a very popular topic with Hispanics who are mostly Catholic, nor in the Black churches which lean mostly Baptist. Spare me all the rape/incest and saving the mother's life arguments -- I've seen claims where those are supposedly only about 1% or less of the total procedures.
All you have to do is look at who's the loudest at the protests. You might find a few non-white women who are maybe in their 20's, but the majority of those screaming and losing their heads are white liberals of every age, clearly channeling their inner Margaret Sanger...
If Congress really wanted to "do something" in the wake of a RvW Overturn, they could push to allow abortifacients to be classified as over the counter.
Given "morning after" treatments are only effective before 10 weeks of gestation, it takes away any need to travel to a clinic and the need for an invasive procedure which might scare some women into delaying until it's now a full D&C.... That's something I'd think most liberals would support and enough moderates could sign onto in good conscience.
A bigger sight to behold will be watching Biden run in "24. Let's go Brandon!!!! Woo hoo............IF, The M O R O N runs in 24', it will be a sight to behold, to watch and see ALL the Trumpette's follow their PIED PIPER OVER the CLIFF !

You as a liberal seem to think there were/are "a lot" of one-issue voters in the GOP.
My experience as a conservative has been the opposite. The bulk of GOP voters are aligned on things like controlling the border, eliminating government interference, lowering taxes, lowering wasteful spending, and protecting personal and religious freedoms.
What I'll concede is that maybe those "one-issue" topics are what initially brings people into the GOP. It's the rest of the platform that makes them stay there...
Today the population is an estimated 334,651,303.
Population of the United States: current, historical, and projected population, growth rate, immigration, median age, total fertility rate (TFR), population density, urbanization, urban population, country's share of world population, and global rank. Data tables, maps, charts, and live...www.worldometers.info
We have had an estimated 63,000,000 abortions since 1973.
That is representative of 18.8255654% percent of our total population as it stands today.
It took thousands of years (estimated) for the United States population to reach 334,651,303 and only 49 years to abort an equivalent of almost 19 percent of our current total. That's WITH immigration (people that were not born on US soil). Eliminate those from the equation and the aborted percentage is even higher.
Does aborting an equivalent of 19 percent of our total population really sound reasonable to you Bears?
How about you KCFlyer?
Go ahead. Defend the indefensible.
Wrong o wise one. Where have I ever said ban ALL guns? But to the right guns are sacred and the lawmakers best not make any law that might prevent already living men, women and children from being gunned down. But you want to ban all abortions. Or...leave it up to the government to determine the exceptions...and they will never cover them all. And abortion is kind of a religious issue....and if that's the case, they why not let GOD decide if the woman was right or not. IF God really is judgemental and places conditions on his love, then yes...these women will rot and burn in hell. But if you get to heaven and find that God's love really WAS unconditional...will you be pissed off at God?KFC wants to keep abortion around to the 99% using it as a substitute for contraception because of the 1% justifiable cases....
And yet he'll outlaw the 100% of the legal guns when less than 1% are ever used for a crime...
Never mind that there are countless laws on the books already banning the use of guns in the context of crime...
Democrats want zero restrictions on abortion.... that's what the legislation that just failed in the Senate states. No more "safe but rare" common sense. They want abortion all the way up to the point of birth.
Republicans already support reasonable controls like background checks and age limits, limits on where guns can be carried and bans on automatic weapons. But those aren't enough for Liberals.
The leaked opinion leaves the door wide open for "safe but rare" abortion laws determined by legislation.
This is exactly where it belonged - let each state determine thru its elected reps what's reasonable and what's not, just as they do on just about every other aspect of daily life, commerce and morality...
The Catholic Church has come out multiple times and stated that self-defense is consistent with its protection of life positions. Taking the life of someone who is threatening your life or others is a morally correct decision in the Church's opinion. Catechism 2264-2265.
