ABORTION:Since abortion, euphemistically referred to as "the right to choose" ---(since when is murder a "choice" in any civilized country?)-- is popular --(remember, that's MURDER that's popular),-- the pragmatists are likely to feel this is suicide for the party.
The party states that "the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed." It opposes using public revenues to promote or perform abortion or to fund organizations that perform or advocate abortions. It says the party will not fund or subsidize health care that includes abortion coverage.
By that reasoning a nation would always be promoting sin and unrighteousness until it is utterly destroyed. Which does seem to have been happening in America over the last half century.
Abortion is certainly a major reason this nation is in disfavor with God, so that a Republican win could begin to turn the tide and bring His blessings back to us. The beginning of the needed repentance.
