Does the Right Wing WANT Roe v Wade Overturned - or Changed?

The Roe Effect (and how it benefits the Republican Party)

Think of it: If I were a Republican:
  1. I would not want Roe v Wade overturned and left to the states. This would mean states would be subject to the populace, most of whom want SOME access to abortion. They'd have to admit to their "God" base that they don't want to put together a total ban.
  2. Nor would I want Roe v Wade reinterpreted to mean the courts could BAN abortion (it is a possibility -- after all, the precedent is that the courts decided the issue, not that abortion was now a right). That would turn the Democrats -- presently the conservative party on this (as in "we must conserve the right to abortion") into the radical party with the overweaning support.

No, if I were the GOP, I would do nothing to let the "God" group out of my sight. After all, it wouldn't be the first time Businessmen rode on the coattails of another group to political power, and it wouldn't be the first time the second group was taken for granted.

And's not like moderates are wanted anymore. When a proposal to remove redistricting from the hands of people already in power in the districts gets voted down by the people, it becomes obvious what people want: Extreme Change, and a prayer that they don't get made illegal by the changes not matter what they are.
