I'm an independent (No Party, technically), and watched both debates. I didn't see much ado about abortion on the Democrats' side. I saw a lot of discussion about Medicare and the economy. The Republicans mostly talked about the debt ceiling and their personal stories. Well, except for Clint Eastwood, who shared some personal anger toward a chair he named Obama. If you think abortion is shameful, don't have one. If you want one, have one. It seems the real issue is, "Who pays?" Let's start there, and keep the idea of banning or expanding the practice out of the discussion. My grandparents survived the Great Depression and WWII and they're spinning in their graves over what both parties have become. Eisenhower, now HE was a Republican!
