The truth is that from Reagan through Bush 2 there were 20 years of Republican control of the Presidency and 8 years of Democratic control. I don't believe it's in the Republican party's best interest to have abortion overturned. They can keep trumpeting it as a reason to overturn it as a way to get elected. If they somehow got it overturned, Democrats would probably have landslide victory's until it was overturned again.
Just the way I see it from a purely political sense.
you made a good response. It is sad that abortion will continue to be viewed the way it is. Politics and religin can go together. It matters to me what God says about it and if more understood that and could see it that way....Roe v. Wade could be reversed. But, the trend doesn't show that happening.
English Standard Version (ESV)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
