Do the candidates really care about abortion and a woman’s undue burden?

The reality is that 42 million women around the world have abortions each year regardless of any politician's religious beliefs or "moderated" position on abortion. Women put off bills, borrow money from friends, travel miles, sit through enforced waiting periods, and they have abortions.
