It's not about a political party hurting itself.  If I live in Arizona and want an abortion, wouldn't I prefer to go to a nearby county to get it done rather than a whole other state?
If I live in the middle of Nebraska, wouldn't I rather drive to Omaha to get it rather than all the way to Denver?
.
It's about more people getting their way. 
Your county-by-county presidential voting map is a more accurate portrayal of reality than a state-by-state map, no?  Same idea.
I understand but my point is the pro choice folks would never want this cause it would shrink the area they would have if voted on by the whole state

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

I have a novel concept.

If you're not married, don't want a kid, but want to have sex?

Use PROTECTION.

Lmao for real. Or develop a strong pull out game. 

On a serious note, they should be handing out IUD’s to every woman of age who wants them and doing the procedure free of charge. They work freaking WONDERS.

Next, let's just tell murderers to not do that.  And speeders to slow down.

Yeah, except the pro-choice folks are smart enough to know that there's far more people in the blue counties and thus, would help far more people........:57:

can't come fast enough as far as I'm concerned.

I'd LOVE to see the US war machine that spends about $1 trillion a year on "defense" (when you take into account everything) get a hatchet taken to it and cut dramatically back by at least 75%. US would still be far and away leader in the entire world on defense spending if that were to happen and they shrunk it down to a "measly" $250 billion a year.

There is literally no reason to spend as much as we do on "defense" other than out and out corruption and imperialism. None. This country is $31 TRILLION in debt, runs deficits until the end of god damn time, lost it's entire manufacturing capability (which is what made it great), has crumbling infrastructure, doesn't even have baby food for half the f***king babies in this country like we're a 3rd world shithole- and more than 30 million American still don't have health care- yet they want to invent money and pull it out of their asses $40 billion here- $100 billion here- at a time- for war. F***K. THAT. SH*T.
Yes, our country is broken.  No, it's not the best in the world.  But one party doesn't let you say these things.  And to be fair, the other party helped make it true.

Whichever country is the "best in the world" would depend on one's personal preferences.  

I'd love to review our security commitments and resize the military after that.  It's not going to happen of course,  meanwhile our financial ability to manage the drain on our monies is going to be more dangerous than any foreign adversary.

But if you have it decided at the state level the blue states get the whole state for pro choice

Theres no way a state like California for example would want to see any counties where its pro life only

it would drive them crazy

You're speaking on the behalf of all Californians now?

The people who would be upset would have about 95% of the population in pro-choice CA counties and understand that in other states, those in pro-choice counties that otherwise wouldn't be far FAR outpopulate the red CA counties' numbers. 

I'm worried that you think everyone thinks like you. But some of us see in 3 dimensions.

The reason for a state to do that would be allowing the people to legislate it in their areas.  ANYONE who props up "let the states decide for themselves" has to acknowledge that letting each county decide for themselves is the same idea, just better. 
.
If not, then you're just being politically blind.
.
It means more people are pleased with the outcome.  Isn't that what it's all about?  Take Texas - the state goes no abortions, angering majorities in the blue counties.  But if each county decides, there are no angry majorities.  Doing it state-by-state is like painting with a roller, but leaving it up to each county, you're painting with a brush.
.
This is an honest-to-goodness middle-line, moderate idea I'm putting out there.  I really don't see any problem with it.

Except counties cannot supercede state laws and become their own mini-states.  There are undoubtedly many red counties within blue states that wish they could carve out their own laws on a number of issues where their views diverge from the state at-large, from education to taxes to marriage to environmental regulations to abortion to gun control to whatever.

As a sort of Californian, fine with it. 

(going county by county sort of goes against the value in having a law at all on the subject, and thus makes the exercise somewhat pointless)

So the value of the law state-by-state is.....solely to make those seeking an abortion to drive further?

Sigh.
Yes, we know.
I'm saying that for this issue, states agree to relent to counties.  

Jesus, guys.
