Okay, you found five people acting to make a point. They don’t represent any sizable amount of opinion.
Or I could treat this like Mega-nauts would do and say this is obviously a False Flag operation put together by abortion opponents.
In the end though, across millions of people, you can always find a few extremists, but they don’t speak for the vast majority on either side of the issue.
Can we come back to the question posed in the thread. How should Republicans respond to this issue politically given that the vast majority of voters who will turn out to vote for abortion rites would never consider worshipping abortion.
Twenty posts in and not one person has offered a view the underlying politics of the issue. Let’s see how far we can get before someone provides a substantive answer?
Actually, I lean in the direction Nikki Haley is going.
This nation is not ready for a ban. Too many people clamor for abortion rights. Trying to change the shift (and yes, there is a clear shift toward abortion) through legislation forces those riding the shift to dig in all the more fervently.
I’m staunchly pro-life, anti-abortion, abortion abolitionist, whatever you want to call it. But if I were running for office I would not be pushing legislation. I would be using my platform to promote the message.
People look to the Kansas vote last August as a watershed moment. I believe it was. KS legislature tried to bite off more than the voters could chew. And the same is happening in other states.
Hearts have to change first. Conservative politicians and talking heads need to use their microphone moments to make the argument for life with the biological facts to make the human rights case. Not to hammer legislation that people cannot understand if they reject the human rights violation that abortion is.
