It is the ONLY issue that matters to my 26 year old daughter. Very sad to say. I asked her why the murder of unborn innocents is her only decision point -- all she could do is sputter and walk away. A great many women under 30, especially single women, think the same way.

Twenty years ago, I was the same way. I was a one-issue voter and reproductive rights were “the” issue for me. Now, in hindsight, I realize it was because that was the only issue I could make heads or tails of! Then 9-11 happened, and I began really educating myself in all the other issues I had neglected as being too hard to understand. In a couple of years I changed my registration from Democratic to Republican.
As for your daughter, she may be the same way. She may only feel that she understands a single issue and so that’s the most important one to her. If you can gently educate her on some of the other issues (pick one! lOL!) then she may start to look past her own uterus.
