It's funny that the party who hates government overreach wants Roe v Wade reversed.

a lot of folks feel the Roe v Wade finding was overreach in itself

I personally feel the woman should have the right to chose but not after 15 weeks

The reversal of Roe v Wade would not in itself ban abortions but would allow each state to decide or itself

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

It'd be smarter if they let each county decide for itself, so some people aren't completely screwed.

If men got pregnant and gave birth, abortions would be legal and free everywhere.

it is a quite strange, but the Republican party got co-opted by Jesus Freak Bible Thumpers starting in the '80s- which is probably why their stance is what it is on abortion.

Reminds me of today how the Democrat party has been co-opted by Russophobes, CeNsOr mE hArDeR dAdDy nut jobs, and the pink haired women, nail polish wearing men and LGBTQRETRA++ millennial/Gen Z freakazoids starting in around oh...2016.

According to one party, men do get pregnant. Their lemmings even have a emoji for it.  

and abortions are legal and free I’m most of this country.

Meh.  There are definitely more Republicans than Democrats in the crowd I am familiar with. Mostly middle-class upper middle class families with 2 to 4 college degrees in the household, taxpaying law-abiding and community giving people.   They virtually all do not want to see row versus wade overturned. Maybe the extreme right does I guess.

Not co-opted as much as strategically added to the base. Politically it was genius. After Watergate, the dams could put anyone up, even Jimmy Carter, and he'd get elected.  As far as governance ideology, it is very odd that the party of limited government added to their base, an entire category of voters, who vote based on added government barriers

The key is suburban white women. I know a lot of them who were lifelong Republicans, who voted against Trump. I don't think DeSantis is going to win them back. None of them like Biden. They mostly view him as a non-threat, not Trump option. I think what has gained DeSantis so much political favor in Florida won't carry over for them as much as the RNC hopes

Great.
But only one of them is trying to legislate 100+ million people what they can't do with their bodies.

2/3rds of the population are against the government banning abortion. That means quite a lot of republicans don't want Roe v Wade overturned. 

The Jesus freaks are 100% in the Republican camp- and well the extremes of both parties always have an out-sized influence even if they aren't a majority of their party, precisely because: they are extremists. They are the loudest voices and try to bully the party into doing what they want and they try to exercise their power more than the silent majority.
