If that's the case, you haven't read the comments. I'll skip over the obviously crazy people ranting about "Obama the Uncle Tom" and "black genocide" (which is an incredibly stupid, ignorant, and offensive thing to say, but that's a topic for another time) and focus on one of the saner readers, who nonetheless observes: "It was stunning how little attention was given to this issue (abortion) during the 2008 election."
Really? A systemic economic collapse, two major wars, crises of healthcare, education, and global warming, and it's surprising that abortion didn't get more attention?
None of this is to say that it's not an important issue, but come on.
