Um, no, the debate of late has been on the FUNDING of abortion. As I (and most reasonable people who are unswayed by rhetoric see it), the GOP platform and understanding on abortion is:
1) Not to be funded by taxpayer dollars.
2) Abortion currently is and should be a state issue only.
3) In order to end abortion altogether, a Constitutional Amendment will be required stating that because human life begins at conception, then so do rights. The likelihood of this occurring is close to zero.
4) And like their counterparts, they realize the biggest reason to take any stance at all on the issue is that it is the ultimate emotional wedge issue. Despite little to no change in abortion law anticipated, it does still swing votes.
