I'm not going to make this blog "all abortion rights all the time" but I'm tempted. This is a terrific Democratic ad from Wisconsin publicizing the extreme position taken by the Republican candidate from governor.
I sure wouldn't give this guy the time of day. Republican are like pursuing dogs that caught the car -- and the car is threatening to run over them. Michels is also a major donor to homophobia.
Abortion rights also alienate voters from Republicans here in Nevada where I'm working the campaign:
The survey, conducted from July 20 to Aug. 1 by Mi Familia Vota and UnidosUS, found that 81 percent of those surveyed opposed taking the choice of abortion away from others. The same poll found that only 25 percent believed religious leaders should tell their members which candidates and policies to vote for, and the rest opposed that practice.
Our canvassers find they can move people at the doors from saying "abortion is sin" to saying that -- yes sometimes abortion is necessary and the woman should make her own decision. Dobbs is forcing people to think through the hard choices life forces on us.
