The abortion bogeyman The president cannot change abortion laws. See, there was this thing called Roe Vs Wade back in 1973 where the Supreme Court of the USA made a decision about abortion. No president can overturn that SCOTUS decision. Only the SCOTUS can overturn that decision. The president can nominate Supreme court justices, but it still takes a majority of the Senate to confirm said nomination. This whole banning abortion claim on the side of the liberals is a false point of discussion used to instill fear in their electorate. And the media eats it up, plays on it, tries to make it a valid topic a valid reason to dismiss a candidate. It isnt a valid argument. Its a bogeyman argument. Basing ones decision whether or not to vote on a candidate concerning said candidates view on abortion is retarded. The media needs to stop pretending that is some sort of yardstick for measuring a candidate. The foolish liberals need to stop making a personal decision about abortion a sticking point for them. The foolish conservatives need to stop thinking that a president can change that SCOTUS decision.
