I hear frequently two things from the right wing: 1. Abortion is murder. 2. The state, not the federal government should decide if abortion is legal. Are the above ideas compatible? Is it possible for people in one state to believe that abortion is murder and legislate against it, and have no problem with a neighbor state allowing abortions? Take a city like Kansas City. Imagine the state of Kansas takes a position that abortion is murder, and the state of Missouri takes a position that abortion is not murder and a woman should have a right to choose. Practically what happens? A woman from Kansas who wants an abortion drives to Kansas City Mo. from Kansas City KS. and gets her abortion. She drives a few miles back to her home in Kansas City KS. Is she still guilty of murder in Kansas? Is she allowed back into Kansas without fear of criminal prosecution? Do we see abortion clinics spring up on the other side of the street from Kansas City KS. so that people have easy access to an abortion? Is it like Nevada who used to have quickie divorces? Is it like people who go over the border to Canada to buy cheaper prescription drugs? You really think the "Abortion is Murder States" are going to be content with a neighbor state that allows abortions? We once had slave states and non slave states, where we had an underground railroad to get the slave states to freedom. Will we then have an underground railroad for women who want abortions? Prohibition doesn't work, history has shown that. The right wing in no way can rationalize the belief that abortion is murder and neighbor states engage in "murder" quietly and without tremendous conflict on many levels. The right wings wants to outlaw abortions in every state, just like they want to outlaw gay marriage in every state. The mission is not really about state rights at all, it is about controlling what all women can do with their bodies, what all people can do in the context of relationships, etc. The right wings doesn't believe in a two party system, they want a one party system and a religious state based on their religion. Fundamentally no different than the Muslim states in the Middle East. Real freedom and liberty are not the goal at all, rather compliance with their belief system is the goal.
