National Pro-Life organization criticizes unclear GOP stance on abortion in midterms
by Karen Faulkner, Worthy News Correspondent
(Worthy News) – A major national pro-life advocacy organization has publicly criticized the Republican party, attesting it may have lost seats in this week’s midterm elections for not making its position on abortion clear enough, the Christian Post (CP) reports.
During a press conference and in a memo released Wednesday, Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser said GOP pro-life candidates have to present themselves in emphatic opposition to Democratic pro-choice candidates who do not support any limits on abortion.
“GOP candidates win in competitive races if they define their opponents as abortion extremists who support abortion on demand with NO limits, and contrast that with a clearly defined pro-life position centered around consensus such as pain-capable or heartbeat limits,” Dannenfelser said.
However, Dannenfelser said, while certain GOP candidates had set out their pro-life stance in emphatic terms, others appeared more ambivalent: “While we have examples of pro-life GOP candidates who were prepared and went on offense, there are also examples of candidates who were not prepared and took the ostrich strategy: burying their heads in the sand and running from the issue, allowing their opponents to define them.”
Concerning the upcoming 2024 presidential cycle, Dannenfelser said GOP candidates must not allow Democratic opponents to set the pace and the narrative: “The 2024 election has to be about the GOP going on offense, exposing President Biden and the Democrats as the true extremists who don’t support ANY limits on abortion and contrasting it with a strong GOP pro-life agenda centered on national minimum protections for the unborn child and mothers either at the point in which they feel pain or when their heartbeat can be detected.”
