What's your make-it-or-break-it election issue?
(Page 3 of 3)
For millions of voters like me, including thousands of undecided women and men on Long Island who were represented at the Hofstra debate, this single issue is personal and powerful. Many of us remember the days when we had to seek illegal abortions in god-awful places at the hands of untrained hacks. The right to choose is a health issue, an economic issue, a human rights issue.

Voters can’t afford to be sanguine about abortion rights. Imagine a world in which you or your girlfriend or your wife or your daughter could not choose when and how or if to have children. You know how people use the phrase “you don’t want to go there”?

Believe me: You don’t want to go there.
