Across the Desk - S9:E12 (Abortion - The Winning Issue for Democrats) [View all]

This week on Across the Desk, Kit Fairchild talks about how abortion has been the Republican white whale. As now that they have caught him, they seem to be going down with the ship. We have seen in the past week a Legislator's seat in deep red Alabama go to the Democrat by a margin on 25 points and all because she ran on the IVF & abortion issue. As well as the Arizona Supreme Court ruling that set abortion back to the Civil War era in that state and now Republicans can't seem to run away from abortion, as well as judges they appointed, as the polling shows a resounding favor for legal abortion and maternity care, including birth control. Combine that with the fact that Republicans have poor messaging on the subject if not out right mixed messaging as they don't seem to have a unified message, much less a plan, to address the abortion debate.
