The Left’s Push for Late-Term Abortion Is Backfiring
Over the last few months, the Democrats have decided to spontaneously go all-in for late-term abortion.
No longer ashamed of the baby-killing nature of “women’s healthcare,” they’ve been pushing for and passing bills that would allow unborn children to be aborted up until minutes before birth.
Most notoriously, New York passed the New York State’s Reproductive Health Act in January that loosened restrictions on third-trimester abortions, allowing, in some cases, abortions up until the baby’s due date.
You also may recall, although it was quickly eclipsed by the whole blackface scandal, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam advocated for terminating the life of a newborn baby just before a vote on a similar late-term abortion law in his state, which thankfully did not pass.
Meanwhile, Vermont and Illinois are already pursuing similar laws.
This is pretty horrifying. The legal murder of the unborn has already been going on for far too long under the guise of “women’s health” that only terminates a “clump of cells,” but now the culture of death has become so brazen that Democrats are openly advocating for terminating the lives of fully-formed, viable babies up to and even after birth.
Well, it turns out that they may be overplaying their hand.
In the face of this mad rush for more murder, it turns out a lot of Americans are likely so shocked by the bold display of pro-death bills, they have seen the true face of abortion and are swinging in the opposite direction.
A new Marist poll reveals that for the first time in a decade, just as many Americans are pro-life as they are pro-abortion. From Axios:
The poll found Americans are now as likely to identify as pro-life (47%) as they are pro-choice (47%). Last month, a similar Marist survey found that Americans were more likely to identify as pro-choice than pro-life 55% to 38%, a 17-point gap.
The survey also found that 80% of Americans support abortion being limited to the first three months of pregnancy, an increase of 5 percentage points since last month’s Marist poll.
In what is very bad news for Democrats is that the change seems to be occurring on their own side:
Democrats, specifically those under the age of 45, seem to be leading the shift: This month’s poll found 34% of Democrats identify as pro-life vs. 61% pro-choice. Last month, those numbers were 20% and 75% respectively.
Among Americans under 45, 47% identify as pro-life vs. 48% pro-choice. In January, those numbers were 28% and 65% respectively.
Let’s hope this shift keeps moving in the favor of the unborn, who can’t answer polls for themselves but who one imagines are 100% pro-life.
