What Republicans get wrong about abortion

“The Democrats’ focus on abortion this campaign cycle is not because they hold a deep-seated belief in reproductive freedom. Rather, as many pundits have pointed out, it is largely because abortion is an issue on which Republicans have impaled themselves. Polls consistently show that most Americans support access to abortion. In fact, as few as one in 10 supports the full ban that some Republican states have introduced. In various state elections last November, governors that supported abortion rights kept their seats. In Ohio (a Republican state), voters added the right to abortion to the state constitution last year. … why does abortion have this resonance? And why does neither party properly understand it? Ultimately, voters see abortion as a private matter.” (02/08/24)
