Why wouldnt a Republican Senate candidate have a talking point answer to this Question? It is the liberals most asked gotcha question, he should have had a coherent response no matter what he believes. Reagan had the best comeback for pro abortion types when he said that all of the pro choice peeps have already been born. The republicans need to get out of the government abortion debate. Even if abortion was made illegal tomorrow, there would still be plenty of "off of the books" abortions performed. Marijuana is illegal, but it is easier to buy than alcohol. Abortion is just a gotcha topic to divert attention from the economy.
