No, if they care deeply about a cause they should vote for it, if they don't it will lose support.

Why would they abstain?

Aren't these the only issues that the politicans DO vote on?

Umm no they vote on most issues, regardless of their family's interests

I don't see why they should abstain from voting because it's an issue people close to them care about...

I'm saying aren't they usually more interested in voting on issues they care about? Should they only vote on issues they don't care much about either way?

Mercury causes autism? Why don't we have a 90% rate of autism if mercury is in all the vaccines?
