Democratic operatives plan to weaponize the abortion issue to attack Republicans in the 2020 elections. Their strategy is to portray the GOP as thugs who want to force women that are raped to carry their rapists’ babies.
It’s part of a larger game plan to appeal to women voters by positioning abortion as a women’s rights issue.
Democratic strategist: We’re not going to play defense anymore
And instead of playing defense when Republicans paint Democrats as heartless baby killers who think it’s okay to murder a child as it’s being born, they’re planning an offensive strategy.
“We are buckled in. We are ready to go, but we’re not going to be playing defense,” Jennifer Holdsworth, a Democratic political strategist told The Hill.
Abortion enthusiasts are targeting state and local elections
Holdsworth says Democrats are teaming up with the following pro-abortion groups to attack Republicans as too extreme in their anti-abortion stance:
- Planned Parenthood.
- NARAL Pro-Choice America.
- Center for Reproductive Rights.
- State organizations in Ohio, Missouri, Georgia and Alabama, where new anti-abortion laws were just passed.
And Democrats are fortifying their offensive tactics by targeting state and local elections, and not just focusing on the presidential election.
“We tripled the size of our state and local staff last year,” said Christina Reynolds, communications vice president of Emily’s List, which works to elect pro-abortion Democratic women to public office. “We need to make sure those elections are just as important as the federal ones.”
Abortion is a divisive topic that is not a “winning” political issue for either side. There’s no winning in the abortion debate; there are only degrees of losing.
The left recruits the LGBT community in their pro-abortion war
To underscore that there are no limits that the left will go to to ensure on-demand abortions, they’re even pandering to the LGBT community by calling abortion a “fundamental human right” — not just for biological women, but for transgender men.
Laura McQuade, the CEO of Planned Parenthood of New York City, made the argument at a recent rally.
“Missouri, Alabama, Georgia — they got some of the most dangerous and egregious legislation that we have ever seen passed in this country in our lifetimes. And it isn’t a coincidence.
This is a coordinated attack in order to drive care underground, but also to force a national showdown in our Supreme Court about access to our constitutional and human rights.
And it’s not just an attack on women. It’s an attack on anyone who can or might get pregnant, including transgender men and gender non-conforming people.”
