Conservative Senate candidates are explaining their abortion positions as Democrats endeavor to paint the GOP as having “extremist” pro-life positions, trusting the issue will inspire their base to make an appearance in the polls this November.
Tiffany Smilean, the GOP candidate in Washington state, delivered an ad Thursday where she blamed the incumbent for erroneously going after her stance on early termination by guaranteeing she wants a nationwide abortion ban.
Liberals have hooked on abortion and killing your child as a key midterms issue following the Supreme Court’s choice in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which corrected almost 50 years of the constitutional right to kill your own child. The majority opinion, written by Justice Samuel Alito and joined by four different judges named by Republican presidents, confirmed that the Constitution and courts, up until the 1973 Roe v Wade choice, didn’t protect abortions as a major human right.
In Arizona, another Republican nominee, Blake Masters likewise delivered a video on social media Thursday where he expresses that he backs abortions so much that he’d even find partial-birth abortion acceptable, and blamed Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly for lying about his fetus removal stance.
“Mark Kelly votes for the most extreme abortion laws in the world,” Masters said in his Thursday video, calling attention to the that the Women Health Protection Act is “more extreme than western Europe, it’s way more extreme than what Arizonans want.”

The only nations with early termination stances like Kelly’s, Masters said, are China and North Korea.
Masters likewise expressed that Kelly supports killing your own child up until the moment of birth, based upon his vote in favor of the Women’s Health Protection Act which eventually failed. The bill would make it impossible for states to prohibit fetus removal during the first or second trimester of pregnancy, and would ban any impediment to “abortion after fetal viability when, in the good-faith medical judgment of the treating health care provider, a continuation of the pregnancy would pose a risk to the pregnant patient’s life or health.”
A few news sources have blamed Masters for backtracking. According to media sources Masters likewise changed some language on his site, eliminating an explanation that he was “100 percent pro-life,” yet Masters’ explained that his stance on fetus removal has not changed and that he revises his site from time to time.
Last week, Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet delivered an ad Thursday endeavoring to paint his Republican adversary Joe O’Dea as somebody who needs to outright ban all abortions. Be that as it may, O’Dea is undeniably more favorable to decisions than the majority of his party.
Pro-life activists Lila Rose, founder, and leader of Live Action forewarned Republican candidates against changing stances for political gain in a statement saying:
“Children deserve robust advocacy, not compromises that cost their very lives. Our pre-born children are living and distinct members of the human family. They are little Americans, and they deserve equal protection under the law guaranteed to them by our Constitution. That means ending the unjust and violent killing of abortion.”
I would hope individuals aren’t changing their stances and giving us empty sentiments just for political gain, but then again isn’t that what most of the top leaders like Biden or Pelosi do?
