Letter: Overturning Roe v. Wade


Despite all of the hand-wringing regarding Brett Kavanaugh’s ascension to the Supreme Court, I do not believe for a minute the court will overturn Roe v. Wade. Why?

The issue of abortion has been a gold mine for the Republicans all these years, and will continue to be so. Countless Americans vote for the GOP on this issue alone. The party has received huge monetary donations because of it as well, and will continue to do so.

So tell me, why would the Republicans throw away a vote-getting, election-winning issue like this?

You don’t believe me? Think back to the first years of the George W. Bush presidency — conservatives controlled all branches of government during his first years in office. They did not outlaw abortion. They did not even try.

Can anyone spell “hypocrisy”?
