Well just say nothing is a brilliant idea - if you want to get creamed by the liberals.<quoted text>
It is destructive to chase away voters over a meaningless platform that is completely in the hands of the courts and cannot be affected at the legislative or executive levels.
Saying that one is "pro-life" is taking an extreme position that guarantees a loss.
Can't you get it through your head that people do not like to be told what to do with their own lives, even if they are morally opposed to abortion? That includes lots of Republican women who do not share your extreme religious views.
Just say nothing.
They pose questions about abortion directly and purposefully in every single presidential debate.
So what do you suppose would happen if every republican candidate just stood their mute?
They'd get creamed, that's what.
Taking a stand is not that farfetched and doesn't require the need to elaborte. It's always the elaborating part that gets them into trouble.
