For many women facing an unexpected or difficult pregnancy, having an ultrasound is a moment that changes their lives forever. Hearing their unborn baby’s beating heart and seeing their child moving and even making faces on the screen is enough to remind them that their child is a wonderful and precious human being deserving of protection.
For generations, Republicans have understood that protecting human life was the key to victory. They can’t forget it now.
Only 10% of voters support the Democrats’ extreme position, while 72% back restrictions at 15 weeks.
Running away from the issue is a proven way to lose. The GOP has gotten better at talking about abortion, but consultants continue to resist putting it up front. In the new Dobbs era, when what was theoretical is now reality, it’s even clearer the old approach doesn’t work. Pro-life candidates who want a shot at winning need to go on offense and expose their opponents as having extreme views.
Despite its continuous, widespread dissemination for more than a decade, this ‘conventional wisdom’ is demonstrably false.
As pro-life leaders, we embrace pregnant mothers looking for a path forward. We want to see unborn children protected in the law, and we want to offer loving service to women in need. Together we have decades of pro-life work to prove that.
