Strict new abortion laws could cause 2020 backlash against republicans

Even Pat Roberts is lashing out at some of these regulations.

In the deep south, republican governors are taking the fight against abortion to the state level, sparking a firestorm of controversy.

And, of course it’s controversial; the subject of abortion can’t not be.  The conception of life, birth, and death are undoubtedly the three most poignant and powerful experiences a human being can have, with the dueling dichotomy of love v. hate rounding out the top 5 list.

Americans have a whole lot of very strong opinions about abortion because of this.  The act itself is caught in this cacophony of emotion, and that cannot be expressed enough.

But, as we all know, this is a nation of freedom whose government has moved far beyond the limits of their original scope.  Even republican presidential candidate Ron Paul understood this, expressing that personal or religious grievances against the practice should not be part of the federal agenda.

Now, with several states passing laws that would limit or ban abortions, or punish those who participate in the practice, the emotional fight over abortion is turning ugly.

States that have passed abortion restrictions:

  • Ohio passed a fetal heartbeat law.

  • Kentucky passed a fetal heartbeat law.

  • Mississippi passed a fetal heartbeat law.

  • Georgia passed a fetal heartbeat law.

  • Utah voted to limit abortions to the middle of the second trimester.

  • Arkansas voted to limit abortions to the middle of the second trimester.

And while the evangelical wing of the republican party is celebrating, it is clear through polling that Americans as a whole would have rather left it alone.

Nearly 60% of U.S. adults say abortion should be legal in all or most cases, according to a 2018 survey from the Pew Research Center.

While Gallup shows Americans are evenly split on how they personally identify — 48% of Americans consider themselves pro-life and 48% are pro-choice — as of 2018, 79% of Americans believe abortion should be legal in at least some circumstances.

This could spell trouble for the President in 2020, however.

The fact that these state-level laws were being passed by republican governors and legislators could be a determining factor for many undecided voters, especially as the outrage grows.

Husbands and wives will be having lengthy, emotional conversations about this for months to come, forcing some to take retaliation against all republicans for the belief and acts of some republicans.

Even Pat Roberts disparaged the Alabama bill, saying that it was “extreme”.

Some may be celebrating these victories today, but there’s no telling what November 2020 has in store for them.
