“But eventually we need a president and a congress that will act on abortion like we once acted on slavery.”
You mean Civil War?
I’m as pro-life as they come, but really, you should think about that statement before repeating it.
Right. Furthermore, unlike slavery, abortion is mandated in every state by the federal government. Overturning Roe does act on abortion, very substantially.
On the other hand, candidates who are weak on an issue risk nothing by championing a Constitutional amendment. Since presidents have no official role in the amendment process, and since Congress and the states are a stumbling block, and since the process takes many years, voila! Instant credibility on the issue with no follow-up results required!
Hopefully this time we won’t need a civil war. But we will need to impose the right to life on every state in the union.
