With Abortion ‘Rights’ referendums PASSING in states across the country by wide margins?
Republican lawmakers have turned their back’s against those pushing for a National Ban against the procedure…..
It is a loser for their party , who thought the High Court throwing the policy to the states would benefit them….
And Democrats plan to keep reminding people to come out and vote AGAINST those who want to take that ‘Right’ away from them….
Republican political groups and anti-abortion advocates are no longer focusing on federal abortion bans on the campaign trail, and leading GOP candidates are hedging on the issue as voters increasingly shy away from strict abortion laws.

Speaking last year at the Faith and Freedom Coalition summit, he said there “remains a vital role for the federal government in protecting unborn life.” The campaign also ran a paid Meta ad campaign in October 2023.
But he also during the same time period told “Meet the Press” that he didn’t “frankly care” if abortion was left to the states in lieu of a federal ban…
Trump has also said exceptions to bans are important for winning elections.
“We’re living in a time when there has to be a little bit of a concession one way or the other,” Trump said earlier this month during a Fox News town hall in Iowa.
“You have to win elections,” he added. “Otherwise, you’re going to be back where you were, and you can’t let that ever happen again. You’ve got to win elections.” ….
