I Think the Reproductive Freedom Issue will come up in one of the next few debates

It wasn't brought up this time because it was strictly about the ecomomy and health insurance, not social issues. It might come up during the town hall. The Prez addressed a crowd in Fairfax, Virginia today about the birth control and abortion issue and he was on fire. I think we're going to be happy with what we're going to see with Joe and President Obama in the upcoming debates.

1. Yes, it's about time - hope you are right

Comments were made about the last debate that Obama and Romney were sounding too much alike (of course, we all know Romney was lying), but these social issues must come up because they will certainly delineate differences between the two parties. Considering how much the Republicans have alienated the women, Latinos, LGBT's, and half of society with the 47% crack, how can these issues be ignored? I know, it's the economy, economy, economy. Well, it's other issues, too. I wouldn't vote for a Republican if they threatened me with a baseball bat; and for me, much of that animosity is directed at these ignoramuses with their backward views.

2. He'll mention women but I'll be surprised if he touches abortion/contraception.

Only the right wants to re-litigate this stuff and they generally just try to push it through when people aren't paying attention.

3. Alienated Women

If the subject comes up, I would think the reproductive issues (abortion/contraception) are going to have to tag along. Otherwise, what is there to say? The religious right have commandeered the Republican party. I am old enough to remember when that wasn't the case. Religion doesn't belong in politics. Anyone is free to think and behave as their conscience dictates, but stay the heck out of making the rules for everyone. Even Barry Goldwater, conservative as he was, did not like what was happening to his party. We can all see what is happening in red states, and it really angers me.
