A recent candidate survey for the New York Times should cause all pro-life voters to seriously reconsider supporting the leading Democratic candidates. Why?
Because they all want to “codify Roe” and ensure that Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton is never overturned. Both court decisions have stripped voters of the right to vote on the issue of abortion for almost 50 years now. Despite their name, the Democratic candidates actually oppose democracy when it comes to the issue of abortion, wanting to prevent voters and legislators at the state level from having real debates about the issue of abortion and related issues.
The view is outside of the mainstream, but much of the media is giving candidates a pass. A poll by our Institute for Pro-Life Advancement found, for example, that 65% of Millennials wanted to be able to vote on the issue of abortion. Further, polling by the College Pulse found that at least 80% of college students want at least some limits on abortions.
The assumption of the Democrats would be that they are populists and they understand what most Americans support. Nada.
Every leading Democratic candidate wants to override the rights of Georgians, Alabamans, and even New Yorkers, to set their own abortion laws. Ironically, the ACLU, which is always sounding the alarm about voter suppression, also supports the disenfranchisement of voters, using their vast legal resources to stop voters in states like Alabama and Georgia, from having a voice on the issue of abortion.
