No surprises really. The Republicans support overturning Roe vs. Wade and support the recent SCOTUS decision making late term abortions more dangerous for women while the Democrats support Roe vs. Wade and criticized the SCOTUS decision.
And since I’m leaning towards Senator Obama, here’s what he had to say on Roe vs. Wade:
“I think that most Americans recognize that this is a profoundly difficult issue for the women and families who make these decisions. They don’t make them casually. And I trust women to make these decisions, in conjunction with their doctors and their families and their clergy, and I think that’s where most Americans are.”

And on the SCOTUS Decision:
“I strongly disagree with today’s Supreme Court ruling, which dramatically departs from previous precedents safeguarding the health of pregnant women. As Justice Ginsburg emphasized in her dissenting opinion, this ruling signals an alarming willingness on the part of the conservative majority to disregard its prior rulings respecting a woman’s medical concerns and the very personal decisions between a doctor and patient.”
