Don't let moot issue decide your vote

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, October 26, 2004

I know voters who have mixed feelings about President Bush's performance and potential, but they agree with his opinion on abortion. For some people, it's a deciding factor. But consider not making abortion an issue in this election. No president in the past 30 years has overturned Roe v. Wade. It's not the president's job to reverse Supreme Court decisions.

While it's important to consider the values of a candidate, the president's opinion on abortion won't change the law. Reagan didn't change it, Bush Sr. didn't change it and George W. hasn't changed it. Vote for a president because of what he really can do in office. Consider the big picture. Don't let the president's opinion on a single issue, an issue he can't control, be the deciding factor.
