TO THE EDITORS:

America loves its politics.

We strive to stand up for our beliefs and rights, but lately people on both sides are concerning themselves with issues that the right and left never intend to do anything about.

The main one is abortion.

The right uses abortion to mobilize its base with strong-held beliefs. This issue will always be, because the right will never overturn Roe v. Wade. This is not because they cannot, but will not.

There have been many times when, in our state and federal government, we have had all three branches of government with a conservative majority, and they never moved on the subject.

Why would they overturn it. As long as abortions exist, they will have a strong ability to mobilize around the subject and get the votes they need.

The left also uses abortion to rally their base, as well, in the same fashion the right does.

This is one citizen who fears that we vote with are hearts and not our heads. Everybody needs to look carefully at whom they are voting for and what they have done and plan to do.
