... Republicans, as a party, want less government. However, try and step back and instead of using snark, think of it from their point of view. When it comes -- specifically to abortion -- if you believe that the fetus is a person, then they aren't asking for -more- government. They're asking government to do its current job and prevent murder. You can disagree with their opinion or reasoning, but if you understand it, you realize that it isn't a more/less government issue here.
