Title: How Republicans in Key Senate Races Are Flip-Flopping on Abortion

Republican candidates in all eight of the country’s most competitive Senate races have changed their approach on the issue of abortion, softening their rhetoric, shifting their positions and, in at least one case, embracing policies championed by Democrats. From Michigan to Maryland, Republicans are trying to repackage their views to defang an issue that has hurt their party at the ballot box since the Supreme Court overturned federal abortion rights. While the pivot is endemic across races in swing states, the most striking shifts have come from candidates who unsuccessfully ran for the Senate just two years ago in their home states, with abortion views that sounded very different. When Bernie Moreno, a Republican businessman, ran for a Senate seat in Ohio in 2022, he described his views as “absolute pro-life, no exceptions.” “Life begins at conception” and “abortion is the murder of an innocent baby,” he said on social media. He has since softened his position. In March, he said he supported a 15- week national abortion ban. But his spokeswoman also says it’s an issue that “should be primarily decided at the state level” and that he backs “reasonable exceptions.” In 2022, David McCormick, a Republican businessman running for Senate in Pennsylvania, touted his staunch commitment to opposing abortion. Asked at a Republican primary debate that April if he would support exceptions to abortion bans if Roe v. Wade was overturned, he said he believed in exceptions in the “very rare instances” when a woman’s life was at risk. Now, as he makes his second bid for the Senate, he has urged Americans to “find common ground.” Language saying “life begins at conception” has disappeared from his website, which now notes that abortion is legal in the state until 24 weeks — the federal standard under Roe. And a campaign spokesman told CNN in April that Mr. McCormick “inadvertently left out” exceptions for rape and incest from his debate answer two years earlier.

Way back when when the Supreme court overturned Roe vs Wade. You and I had a discussion. I said it would help Republicans and you said it would be a liability. I guess you were right and I was wrong.

These Republicans are pussies though and will say anything to get elected.

Stick with the truth and maybe they can win in the long term.

Abortion is obviously an abomination, but it ain't going away no matter how much Pro-Lifers wish it were so. And it has been a long, hard road getting Roe v. Wade overturned in favor of letting States decide abortion policy. I think this push to nationalize a limit undermines our high ground and energizes the pro-abort folks.

If some GOPers feel the need to massage their stance on this issue to win in November, I am going to cut them some slack...MUD

It’s an issue like Prohibition was - a moral absolute for those focused on it, either the absolute wrong of killing a baby, or the absolute wrong of depriving women of reproductive control. People who are conimitted to their views, do not change, ever. And so it becomes a pragmatic question to those who don’t really care. The number of Christians declines every year, while the number of women remains constant. Many women are going to vote for abortion as a constant. So Republicans who are politicians outside of the Deep South have to ask themselves if they want to die on this hill. In Baptist states, it doesn’t matter. But in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Arizona, - the swing states that are not Baptist - it does. Is stopping abortion important enough to re-elect Joe Biden and keep Democrats in control of Congress. Yes, the Supreme Court decision means that Texas and Louisiana get to make it illegal… for awhile. Sustained Democrat rule means an eventual change to the Supreme Courtand a return to Roe.

Roe v. Wade is permanently dead...even if Dem Marxists stacked the SCOTUS with rabid baby- killers, I don't see how the Justices "discover" a woman's unfettered "right" to murder her baby up to the moment of birth (as desired by most DemocRAT legislation). It was correct for the SCOTUS to relegate abortion access to the States...gotta quit surrendering power to DeeCee on everything.

Logical. If politics were that people would admit defeat and move on. If.

"...people would admit defeat and move on."

Follow the money...too much profit to be made by Big Abortion (aka Planned Parenthood). Same thing with this new Trans fad...Big Trans can't wait to get ALL people on the KommieKalifornia plan, wherein all unnecessary plastic surgery is paid for by Big Guv'ment, and not by those who are choosing to mutilate their bodies in search for their "true selves"...MUD

either the absolute wrong of killing a baby,

It is absolutely wrong. Anyone who says otherwise is an evil piece of shit or brain damaged.

Anyone who performs an abortion should be tortured then killed then thrown into the trash can.

While I'm not arguing with you, republican legislation requires some compromise until we are more successful in changing the hearts and minds of more folks. If WeThePeople succeed, incremental change can save millions of unborn lives. If we demand too strict a Ban.on All Abortion, it may cost us control of Congress and the White House.

Imho, pragmatism ain't a nasty word if it will help Trump and the MAGA crowd control DeeCee for the next four years...MUD
