Abortion is not an issue in America. Like it or not, the Supreme Court made abortion a woman's right. The only way to reverse Roe vs. Wade is a constitutional amendment. You will never get a Supreme Court to reverse it. The last time Congress considered changing the Constitution was 1983 when the Senate rejected the Hatch-Eagleton Amendment 49-50.
The 2012 Republican platform called vaguely for a constitutional ban on abortion -- except for rape and incest, but such an amendment does not exist.
Banning abortion is like the weather. Every Republican in Washington talks about it but there is little they can do about it. Placing a time limit on abortion stopped a few abortions, but that was the craft of ghouls like Kermit Barron Gosnell. Congress dodged the Hyde Amendment to fund abortions through grants to Planned Parenthood. If the Republican Party cared about abortion, it would have shut down the government to avoid paying for another abortion. Even Ted Cruz -- who voted against it -- did not try seriously to stop it. He gave a faux filibuster to goose his presidential ambitions.
Trump is a latecomer to the game, which should be a plus like the sinner who converts. It is not.
From the Weekly Standard:
If you are pro-life, you cannot vote for Donald Trump. The point is simple and unavoidable: If the man is not a covert supporter of legalized abortion, he has at least thought about the issue so rarely and so incompletely that he cannot articulate a coherent sentence about it. Forget walking the walk. Donald Trump cannot even talk the talk. A vote for Trump in any of the remaining Republican primaries is a vote to continue the regime of Roe v. Wade that has warped American politics, injured American jurisprudence, and fed the American culture of death for over forty years. A vote for Trump is a vote for abortion.A vote for abortion? Sorry but abortion is not the law of the land but embedded in the Constitution thanks to Roe. You can revoke a law. You cannot revoke Roe, no matter how wrongly decided it was. Fixing the court will not work. That is the lazy man's way. It is passive aggressive. You need to be aggressive. You need a constitutional amendment.
And that is never going to happen because that would require a majority in Congress and in 38 states.
