Insufficient to describe abortion as ‘political issue’

Read Time:4 Minute, 48 Second

It always seems insufficient to describe abortion as a “political issue.”

Dan Sewell, political columnist

We’re not talking about replacing the Brent Spence Bridge, the best way to fund public schools, or how involved militarily we should be in Ukraine.

Abortion transcends differences in political philosophies. There is a wide gulf of difference between two sets of strongly held beliefs.

Do you believe abortion is the immoral killing of an innocent unborn child, or that having an abortion is a deeply personal, private decision for a woman to make about her own body and future?

Yet here we are again.

The U.S. Supreme Court decision in June overturning the Roe v. Wade ruling that upheld abortion access for the last five decades quickly pushed abortion back into the forefront of politics with midterm elections nearing in November. Besides U.S. Senate and governor, there are other statewide offices, congressional, statehouse seats and judgeships on the line in Ohio.
