The Abortion Narrative Is Wrong

After yet another disappointing result for pro-life candidates and ballot initiatives in the 2023 "off-year" elections, the media narrative on abortion is just as wrong today as it has always been. Now there is a rush by many in the professional political class to find "common ground" on abortion.

All of us at JDFI want fewer abortions and for this termination of life to ultimately end. But looking for common ground on abortion with the pro-abortion Left is a worthless and useless exercise.

Just consider what happened in the Virginia legislative elections this month. After Democrats took total control of Virginia in 2019, they quickly repealed many commonsense pro-life laws.

This year, Governor Glenn Youngkin and Republican candidates ran on the idea of preventing abortions after 15 weeks, a time in the second trimester when doctors believe the baby can feel pain.

A 15-week limit is typical of most abortion restriction in liberal Europe. It's a widely popular proposal here too, according to many polls. But it was too much for Virginia's pro-abortion Democrats, who spent millions of dollars on deceptive ads attacking this attempt to reach common ground as "extreme."

The reality is that the Left's pro-abortion position is extreme. They want no restrictions on abortion whatsoever. And you don't have to take my word for it. In a recent MSNBC interview, House Democrat leader, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) declared, "Well, abortion care should be a choice between a woman and her doctor. Period. Full stop…That's what freedom in America is all about."

Notice that Jeffries isn't calling for "common ground. Notice that Jeffries doesn't name even one single abortion he would prohibit.

In the wake of recent election losses, pro-life Americans must revisit our messaging and our strategy. But we must never compromise our principles. To suggest that the sanctity of life is a losing issue is simply wrong.

We won the generational battle to overturn Roe v. Wade, thanks to three solid, hard-fought pro-life Supreme Court nominees. When the Dobbs decision was handed down, we celebrated. But we also warned that the battle for the sanctity of life was far from over.

We must not get complacent. We must not agonize. We must organize in our churches, in our communities and even in our own families. We must stand firm on our principles that all human life is precious, and that we are all endowed by our Creator with the unalienable right to life.

What Would the Presidents Say?

February is the month when two of our greatest presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, were born. Both of these great men loved America and loved God. I suppose they would be called "Christian Nationalists" today—and it would not be meant as a compliment. Here are just two quotes of what they thought about God and America.

Our Out-Of-Touch Elites

Our country's founding idea was really revolutionary in that it declared that our liberty comes from God, not government. Throughout our history, the story of America has been one of liberty being expanded to include more and more people in the promises of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
