Do you consider abortion to be an important political issue?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 18, 2007
“I think it’s an important issue, but at the end of the day I think it’s a personal decision and not one that legislation should decide.”
“Yes. I take it into account when I choose who I’m going to vote for. Generally I vote for pro-choice candidates because I lean toward the right to choose.”
“No. I don’t see why it should have anything to do with politics. I believe it’s an important decision for an individual, but not for politicians or the welfare of the country.”
“I think it’s hard for politicians to get into that issue because it’s so divisive. It’s such a personal thing that they’ll never be able to please everyone. There are so many more important issues to focus on.”
