“Sen.-elect Scott Brown, R-Mass., told Barbara Walters he supports Roe v. Wade and believes that states should decide the issue of gay marriage, not the federal government, during an interview that aired today on ABC’s This Week.” ~ On Politics
Contrary to popular belief, overturning Roe v. Wade would not outlaw abortion but only return the issue to the states. Why does Brown think that states should decide the issue of gay marriage but not abortion? Are Brown’s positions at all consistent? I’m sure it’s just a matter of political expediency, but it illustrates how lopsided popular appeals to states’ rights are.
