    Abortion is a losing issue on a national level for Reps. It's trying to impose moral values on a majority that doesn't want it. It's seeking a political remedy for what is considered a religious issue. 50% of Catholics voted for Obama. Reps seem to be all over the board on the issue while trying to avoid the subject. I think we need a clear, this is what we stand for, message. There are over 1 million abortions in the US every year. We are not outlawing abortion we are moving forward with government sponsored abortion. There is no magic wand to stop abortion, why not use tactics that have a chance of success.

    When public opinion is turning more and more against unrestricted abortion, that hardly seems the case.

    That's because a large portion of that was Latinos and unmarried women, who broke for obama in large numbers.

    They already tried the "wide stance". Is there one that covers "legitimate rape"?

    Only a total fucking idiot and retarded moron believes there is "unrestricted abortion". Glad that's not you. So what was it you actually meant? Before you made a misprint?

    No. It's their bread-and-butter get out the vote issue. Talk it up ad nasseum during the campaign ... and then crickets chirpping until next election cycle.

    "Legitimate Rape" would be you - with your legs up in the air.
    As usual...

    Exactly what I have pointed out many times. Hispanics/Latinos are natural born Republicans. They are hard working, deeply religious, and family oriented.

    The GOP is missing the boat, bigtime.

    The GOP doesn't want Latinos. I've had posters on this site say they'd rather the party die off than "compromise their beliefs" to include Latinos.

    Is that your way of saying YOU believe in unrestricted abortion?
