The Republicans were for Abortion before they were against it.

Roe vs Wade was a 7 to 2 decision.
How many of the 7 were appointed by the republicans?
Answer five. Five of the seven were appointed by republican Presidents.
Two were appointed by democratic Presidents.
The two who voted against it were appointed by one democrat and one republican president.
Read about it here,

I just thought this was interesting since Abortion is always thrown in our face come election time.

1. Yes. And the Republics were looking for a wedge issue

to capture the catholic and fundy vote when they seized on abortion. Prior to that they didn't care one way or another.
