Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) predicted on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday that if Republicans don’t find a “middle ground” on abortion, they will “lose big” in the 2024 election.
Many topics were covered, including:
To quote MARTHA RADDATZ: Do you agree with the Supreme Court’s decision?
MACE agrees with the Supreme Court’s decision from last Friday. Both the Texas case and the judge assigned to it were chosen with great care. If you examine the Texas ruling closely enough, you’ll notice that it relied, at least in part, on a statute that was struck down by the Supreme Court in 1983. The thinking that went into his choice shouldn’t be dismissed. To put it simply, I disagree.
RADDATZ: And it still isn’t over. There are several additional cases currently before the courts. I can’t wait to hear your forecasts. How you see your future unfolding.
MACE: I believe a middle ground is necessary. As a Republican and a constitutional conservative who places a high value on human life, I witnessed what transpired in the wake of Roe v. Wade. My district is as purple as this outfit, and I’ve noticed a dramatic difference in the way people feel about it. The Republican Party needs to find the middle ground on this subject since most Americans are not on either extreme. And in Florida, late last night, a provision protecting fetal heartbeats was signed into law. I live in South Carolina, where some state lawmakers are trying to pass a bill that would allow the death sentence for abortion providers while giving greater rights to sexual abusers than to their victims.
It’s not off to a good start for the year 24. There will be dire repercussions if we keep pushing ourselves to this limit. The vast majority of readers expect that this post will lead them to reasonable early limitations, not at, say, nine months, but somewhere in the middle. They hope to find a loophole in the law prohibiting rape and incest in order to do these acts. They are in favor of making it easy for women to obtain birth control. We may agree on the value of life and these other principles.
