Personally, I don't have a problem with abortion, I'm pro-choice. However, I'd much rather the power to choose be in the power of states then in the power of the federal government. At least, with the states, even if 49 states choose to make abortions illegal and one state is pro-choice, then you can always travel to that one pro-choice state. On the other hand, once the federal government makes abortion illegal, then damn, you're screwed. I feel more comfortable having my eggs spread in 50 baskets, then put in one basket.
