As soon as news leaked out that the Best Court could overturn Roe v. Wade , Democrats starting working in making abortion a midterm issue — a message that is “ already falling flat” with voters, The Hill reported Wednesday.
“ Here we are with leadership basically [reduced] to begging for people to vote, ” Aaron Chappell, political director from the grassroots group Our Trend told the publication. “ No clear plan, no promises of what individuals votes will translate in order to. ”
Since the issue of abortion laws offers been returned to mention legislatures , Democrats have begun chattering about attempting to “ codify Roe ” or even revive the Women’s Health Protection Act , which would prohibit local, state, and federal officials from stopping abortions at any stage of pregnancy. Pro-abortion groups are actually dumping money into Democrats’ campaigns and paying for political attack advertisements against pro-life Republicans.
Democrats are also “ hoping to create enough urgency to point the turnout numbers in their favor” by fear-mongering about a potential national abortion ban if Republicans win back the House and Senate in November. But according to The Hill , several Democrat strategists “ query whether that’s the right approach. ”
