Abortion Makes a Comeback in This Year's Midterm Elections In 2012, Democrats beat anti-abortion Republicans by invoking what they called a "war against women." But, instead of backing away from the issue, the GOP has re-framed it , still advocating the right to life while denying the right to a tax-payer subsidy. During yesterday's 41st anniversary protest against Roe versus Wade , the Republican National Committee ran shuttles back and forth between its annual meeting and the Washington Mall. Republican state legislatures have recently passed more than 200 anti-abortion laws, and many supporters of the right to choose also approve some restrictions. Polls show it's one social issue that really divides Americans right down the middle. Will it help determine who controls the US Senate and Congress?

Is it time to try altering the atmosphere by what's called "geoengineering?" We hear about unintended consequences, international relations… and ethics.
