Republicans’ Easy Way to Defuse Social Issues

It seems a big question: if legal in certain states and not in others, what becomes of the federal dollars involved ? For example, abortion becomes legal in California, but not so in Oklahoma, does California get all the money for their newly created and extended version of Planned Parenthood ? Is California treated special ? Seems a difficult road...

This is part two of a column on the state of Republicanism and how they should move forward.

In 1973, the Supreme Court issued one of their worst rulings ever in Roe v. Wade. Largely made from “whole cloth,” the ruling has started a 40-year fight over abortion that unnecessarily has divided this country. If Republican principles were in place on this issue, then there would be a heated discussion; but the core of the fight would be defused and the issue would be handled at the state level where it properly belongs and where other issues should be handled.
