    No one wants Roe V Wade changed. If republicans had wanted it challenged, it would have been overturned long ago. So, politically, no one REALLY opposes it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It certainly would put the issue aside, but I do not expect broad sweeping "You go Girl!" rulings from the SCOTUS. I do not believe that it is toxic for the GOP except amongst those who wouldn't vote for the GOP to begin with.

    It's a telling thing for the GOP to support SOME rights for SOME folks, but not for others.

    I don't expect them to go that far in these cases either.

    As for toxicity, I think being opposed to equal rights for gays is quickly becoming a complete political loser. It is trending like other civil rights issues and the GOP must evolve or suffer for it.

    It's not about that, it's about the future generations of people the republican party needs in order to remain relevant.

    Again, it's a telling thing, to just about anyone, when republicans supports rights for SOME, but not for all.

    In many areas I do take the conservative position, but not here.

    This isn't true NP. You only choose to consider Roe v Wade, because there are plenty of other examples that show that issues do come up again and again particularly when it is one side showing their right is being denied and another with nothing more than "well the majority wants it this way". Pace v AL -> Loving v VA, Plessy v Ferguson -> Brown v Board of Education, Bowers v Hardwick -> Lawrence v TX. All represent cases that overturned previous Court decisions.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
