Abortion is not even an issue in this campaign,which is telling. Stopping abortion will never happen by government action. It will only happen when women and men are raised to understand the consequences and given the moral compass to understand how evil abortion is. If you are waiting for a candidate for the Presidency to add the repeal of Roe v. Wade to their plank you will never vote again. Stop government funding of abortions, stop government free pre and post natal care and you can get a little control over the issue. If the government stops funding Planned Parenthood than the cost of an abortion will go up dramatically. Stop feeding the providers money and the costs will rise for abortions, Mitt will not do this, but a conservative Congress can and can force Mitt to sign the bill.

Absolutely, positively, one hundred percent correct, Chief.
With a majority of Americans willing to accept abortion under the usual circumstances (rape, incest, birth defects etc) it will never be ended just by electing a president.
It has to be ended by changing hearts on the retail level, one by one. Once that's done then the laws will change.
Many of the hardcore pro-lifers on FR live in fantasyland about electing someone who will do away with abortions with the stroke of a pen. They hate and reject the reality that you have described.
