While voters are hesitant to endorse unlimited abortion, many Democrats have made it a key part of their platform going into the midterms.
Democrats are outraged that, according to a leaked version of the Dobbs v. Jackson opinion, the United States Supreme Court is poised to strike down Roe v. Wade — but their hypocritical insistence that abortion is the “law of the land” is fueled by the party’s determination to codify abortion without any restrictions.
Polling suggests that a majority of Americans are opposed to killing babies in the womb up until birth. A 2021 survey from The Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that 80 percent of Americans believe abortion should be illegal in the third trimester of pregnancy. A more recent Fox News poll conducted shortly before the Dobbs opinion leak found that 54 percent of registered voters support laws restricting abortion after 15 weeks.
Despite the fact that American voters are hesitant to endorse unlimited abortion, many elected Democrats have made it a key part of their party’s platform going into the 2022 midterms.
When asked “if he supports any legal limits on abortion,” Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock refused to answer directly and instead said, “I support a woman’s right to choose.”
Pennsylvania’s Democrat Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, who is running for a chance at a U.S. Senate seat, was even more straightforward about what he believes about unlimited abortions.
“Are there any limits on abortion that you would find appropriate?” a reporter asked.
“I don’t believe so, no,” Fetterman replied after pledging to nuke the filibuster to codify Roe v. Wade.
