  • :) yep. Just because the president is for or against it doesn't mean it will happen! The congress and senate have to agree too

  • Yes so why is this seem to be the deciding factor for some people to choose one candidate over the other. For some it seems to be the only issue of importance.

  • because they are uninformed & uneducated on how things actually work.

  • It comes right down to morals and the right to life and the passion inside when you know you are killing a life and when someone comes and says they are in favor of that instead of against it seals the deal. We get fined when we kicked the crap out our dog, or cat or some other form of animal abuse but we can abort a baby lickity split.

  • a dem has only been in office for 8 of the last 30 years.
    republicans have done nothing about abortion and they're not going to do anything if mccain wins, either!

  • thats why i think it's so stupid that people can base their vote entierly on that.

    Answer by BabyGsMaMa13 at 11:28 PM on Nov. 3, 2008

  • do people voting based on the abortion issue realize mccain has voted against any abortion regulation since he has been in office, supports abortion, and up until a few years ago was a democrat?

    why not vote while considering an issue that will be addressed during this term!

  • if you're so worried about issues that are non-issues to others, then as i've said zillions of times, the buck starts at the bottom..not just the presidency. elect the officials from the bottom-up who share your concerns..don't wait to vote in the presidentials..start in the locals, with judgeships, congressmen/women, senators...they all get somewhere from some lower position. vote everytime there is an election in your local/county/state. get to know the people that are being sent to washington dc...some may not get there, if they aren't voted in on a lower level.
