I judge you based on how you feel about Roe v. Wade.
I don’t judge you based on how you feel about abortion. You disagree with it, you would never have one, it’s against your personal morality, I don’t care. I just ask that you show me and all women the same respect.
I’ve heard people complain that this is a poor test for a political candidate. I disagree. Opinions on Roe v. Wade let me know what you think the role of government should be. Either you think government should be the morality police and large and intrusive enough to regulate people’s personal lives, or you don’t.It also lets me know what you think about science. Either you understand biology or your understanding of the world hasn’t changed since the Bronze Age.
Even if someone thinks abortion is wrong personally, they can still be pro-choice if they have enough foresight to not want large and intrusive government and the understanding of how our bodies work. I suppose its just a happy coincidence that people who agree with Roe v. Wade have other political opinions that I tend to agree with.
