Democrats Can Win On Abortion
I wrote before about how abortion is a wedge that works against the Republican Party. The Hill has an article on how NARAL helped Democrats win Congress.
Last year the group polled in a handful of districts where it played in Arizona and Pennsylvania. This year, it polled in 22 “mainstream American” districts — 19 of them Republican-held — and Quinlan said the results led him to believe NARAL “can swing that election” in those districts.
Quinlan noted that “nearly two-thirds of all pro-choice women in these districts identify as either moderate or conservative, while pro-choice independent and Republican women overwhelming identify as either moderate or conservative.”
Quinlan said the findings illustrate that 59 percent of independent-voting women favor legal abortion in all or some cases. He also found that 34 percent of all Republican women in those districts think abortion should be legal in all or some cases.
Democrats can beat the Christian Right and protect a woman's right to choose. In fact, it is in their best political interest. They need to stop listening to political advisors that put Democrats in a ditch.
Terri Schiavo and South Dakota were major defeats for the Christain Right. The Republican Party moved women to the left on abortion and end of life issues. Democrats have an opportunity to bury people like Bob Jones and Jimmy Swaggart. The former is a racist and the latter is addicted to hookers. These are people the GOP pander to to GOTV. It has nothing todo with Christian values. Swaggart and Jones are hatemongers whom love to throw stones. The GOP don't care as long as these pseudo-Christians help the party stay in power.
Facebook has NARAL as a cause. You can contributed or fundraise for NARAL.
