A candidate's stance on abortion is largely unimportant because there is basically no chance that Roe V. Wade will be changed.

It is important, because the federal government can impose some limitations on abortion while remaining in the bounds of judicial precedent. In addition, the president selects the Solicitor General who argues before the Supreme Court and the president has the chance to nominate pro-life justices who will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.

They go to case for abortion is now actually Casey v Planned Parenthood. You should look up how the Supreme Court has majorly back tracked on its stance for abortion.

It isn't about keeping abortion legal, it's a bout making it available for everyone who needs it.

It matters because the candidate will influence how abortion related issues advance and whether Supreme Court justices are likely to finally repeal RvW.

Disagree. It can be changed and I would prefer a candidate that closely aligned with my positions and values anyway.

Some states have tried more restrictive laws (ND tried to ban abortion after six weeks into pregnancy). A new conservative movement could one day succeed to have the supreme court acknowledge human life, and human rights, to begin at conception.
