35. Abortion is a wedge issue Republicans will never get rid of.
Sorry about ending a sentence with a preposition.

Republicans will continue to write bills that forget to protect the life of the woman just so they can say they tried and the activist judges ruled against them.
If they wanted to, they could. They have the majority in both houses and the White House. Why don't they? Abortion is too important a wedge issue to them for them to eliminate it.
Congress is doing nothing right now but making laws to help Republicans hold onto power. They aren't representing their constituents, they are representing themselves and their buddies to keep the gravy train running.
