The Issue: Ohio’s vote Tuesday to enshrine strong rights to abortion in the state’s constitution. I hope that Republican candidates nationwide have learned a lesson from Tuesday’s elections: Stay far away from the abortion issue (“Ohio enshrines abortion,” Nov. 8). The Democrats have this bear-trap fully armed and are ready to lure conservatives into it. Anytime the word “abortion” is mentioned, Democrats will heat and bend and shape the Republican position as being a total ban on abortion, including in cases of rape, incest and life of the mother. My advice to Republican candidates: When the abortion question is brought up, run away. Otherwise, change the subject, obfuscate, take a bathroom break or even pull the fire alarm. Standing too close to an abortion ban is like standing too close to former President Donald Trump in much of this country: political suicide. Tony Smith
Lenox, Mass. It is obvious that both women and independents can sway elections. There are more women who are pro-choice than those who are pro-life. Republicans must get off their high horse and reach a compromise with Democrats. If not, Democrats will continue to win every upcoming election, despite their egregious actions that are slowly, but surely, destroying our nation. Carl Rosenberg

Republicans are incorrectly reading the abortion issue. It’s actually a “my neighbor” issue: Voters are personally indifferent to the abortion issue, but will care enough about it to advocate for their neighbors’ access to abortion. To the average voter, the issue has moved beyond the realm of personal responsibility. Steven Gidumal

Let’s agree to keep politicians out of our bedroom, our schools and our private lives. Leave private decisions up to women and doctors. Why are Republicans so willing to take away right and freedoms? Republicans want to force women to have babies, claiming they really care, yet after birth they do-nothing to prevent maternal and infant mortality. This fact proves Republicans want to control women, not care for children. Richard A. French

The Issue: The rise in the number of migrants coming over the southern border under President Biden. It is almost as if they want to purposely destroy the United States (“A multiplying migrant tally,” Nov. 8). By the end of this Biden term, the administration will have allowed several million illegal immigrants to pour over our border. Many who are entering are potentially terrorists, drug and human traffickers or gang members. Furthermore, lethal drugs flowing across our border, especially fentanyl, kill upward of 100,000 (primarily young) people per year. Yet the administration is doing little to nothing about it.

Almost 6 million migrants have come across our open southern border that Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas says is “secure.” Anyone who can read or write or watch the news can see that this is beyond a lie. Therefore, I think that every congressman and government official who supports an open border must take in and house a number of migrants. After all, the mayors and residents of many US cities are having to deal with this issue. So, it is time that the government officials supporting an open border must put their money where their mouths are and provide shelter, food and health care and set an example Harry Winkler
