What Can Republicans Do to Win After Roe v. Wade?

Updated: Dec 1, 2023

TOPIC: ForAmerica's David Bozell and The Washington Times' Tim Constantine Discuss the Political and Social Implications of Overturning Roe v. Wade


WATCH:


MONEY LINE:

"If you're willing to kill babies at their most innocent stage, you're willing to do a lot of things."

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • After 49 years of conservative efforts, Roe v. Wade was overturned, raising questions about the future direction of the conservative movement and the Republican Party in the post-Roe environment.

  • Even after spending millions in state referendums like Ohio and Virginia, the pro-life movement has failed to win most pro-life votes since Roe's overturning.

  • The overturning of Roe v. Wade has had mixed political repercussions. While it was a landmark victory for conservatives and life, it has also led to losses in state referendums and down-ballot initiatives as Republicans have yet to reorganize their efforts on a united front.

  • The conservative movement faces the challenge of developing a cohesive and effective message around the issue of life and abortion. The lack of a unifying issue like Roe v. Wade has led to fragmentation within the movement, highlighting the need for a clear and compelling narrative.

  • The U.S. does not have a culture of life, the importance of fostering a culture of life in the United States is important both socially and politically.

  • The conservative movement needs to focus on scientifically informed policies, such as legislation based on when a fetus can feel pain. A 15-week abortion ban is bad messaging, and isn't a principled stance.

  • Incremental pro-life victories are great, but the conservative movement needs to build a movement like the gay-rights movement did in the late 90s in order to achieve meaningful wins for the right to life.

  • The issue of abortion is our modern-day slavery. Future generations will look back and wonder how Americans in 2023 were allowing the murder of innocent babies.

  • Abortion is expected to be a central issue in the 2024 presidential race. The Republican Party must develop effective messaging and strategies to address this issue, as it will likely be a major point of contention in the election.
