In the midst of Tuesday night’s debacle for Republicans in Ohio and Virginia, Fox News’ Sean Hannity lamented, “Democrats are trying to scare women into thinking Republicans don’t want abortion legal under any circumstances.” Gosh, I wonder why women would think that?
Meanwhile, Republican officials in Ohio were vowing to overthrow the voters’ choice to enshrine abortion rights in the state’s constitution. “The legislature has multiple paths that we will explore to continue to protect innocent life,” Ohio House Speaker Jason Stephens declared. “This is not the end of the conversation.” Republican Senate President Matt Huffman agreed, saying, “This isn’t the end. It is really just the beginning of a revolving door of ballot campaigns to repeal or replace Issue 1.”
The forced-birth movement’s refusal to accept reality is being taken to absurd lengths in Michigan, where voters approved a constitutional amendment enshrining abortion rights in 2022. The group Right to Life of Michigan is suing in federal court to overturn that amendment, with the clear aim of getting abortion back in front of the U.S. Supreme Court to finish the job it started with its ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
