During the last 3 Republican administrations (Reagan, GHW Bush and GW Bush) they have continuously mouthed platitudes against abortion. Just what have thery actually done while holding the office of president for 5 terms (20 years)? To my knowledge the only real change was the passage of the law against late term abortion. This is a horrific practice but it only represents about 0.02% of the total abortions. Then GW Bush, termed the most right-to-life president in history made an executive order forbidding doctors and other health care professionals to be punished for refusing to perform abortions. George Bush was elected in 2000. He enacted this executive order 8 years later in 2008 right at the end of his second term. It didn't even take effect until after he left office. Why did he wait so long to do this? Why didn't he do more? I think the reason is that the Republicans don't want to end abortion. That would remove their hold over evangelical Christian voters. They want to act as if they want to change the abortion laws but not really do anything. THis is the height of hypocrisy.
