Republican leaders are not known for standing on principle.
In fact, more often than not, it is Republican elected officials who cause the most damage to conservatives and Pro-Lifers.
That’s why a former Trump spokesperson and leading conservative voice calls on the GOP to push Pro-Life policy.
As Republican politicians begin selling out their Pro-Life base, some in the GOP are warning them against that action.
Among those is former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who recently said Republicans must advance the Pro-Life cause “head-on.”
Calling out the Democrats’ extreme pro-abortion ideology
The popular conservative spokesperson urged the GOP to push the issue and force Democrats to admit just how extreme their pro-abortion positions are.
The simple fact is that Democrats now support taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand for any or no reason, up to and including birth.
This radical position is so far out there the American people reject it overwhelmingly.
But McEnany went further, laying out a three-point plan she believes can help GOP candidates stay true to their base and Pro-Life principles while winning elections.
McEnany said the first point is to “talk about supporting mothers.”
For example, she pointed out that Pro-Life pregnancy resource centers and other Pro-Life organizations actively work to provide for vulnerable mothers, not just while they’re pregnant but into their early childhood years too.
These centers provide mothers vital items like diapers, baby formula, blankets, and food.
They also provide much-needed emotional, medical, and even financial support.
Pro-abortion activists try to claim that Pro-Lifers are only “Pro-Life until birth,” but McEnany’s advice puts pro-abortion radicals on the defensive.
Compassion, caring, and consistency
McEnany’s second point was for Pro-Life politicians to emphasize compassion in their talking points.
She pointed to the recent success of Pro-Life legislation in Kansas when a doctor’s testimony on caring for babies who survived abortions swayed even some Democrat legislators to override Governor Laura Kelly’s (D-KS) veto of the born-alive bill.
McEnany’s third and final point was to expose “the extremism of Democrats.”
She said, “I’d love to see a presidential candidate look at Joe Biden and say, ‘President Biden, when does [an unborn] baby feel pain?’ I don’t think he could answer that question. Why isn’t every Democrat in America being asked that question?”
McEnany’s call to the GOP comes ahead of some abortion-related ballot initiatives in several states that will be voted on in the coming months.
In Arizona, pro-abortion groups like NARAL Pro-Choice America and Planned Parenthood are focusing on enshrining abortion into the state’s constitution.
Radical pro-abortion groups in Florida, Iowa, Missouri, and Nebraska are trying to put a constitutional “right” to abortion on the ballot as well.
And, of course, there is already one such proposal on the ballot in Ohio this November.
According to left-wing rag Axios, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee urges Democrats to double down on pro-abortion rhetoric.
A memo circulated amongst Democrats argues that abortion is “still a major motivating factor even after the  midterms.”
The memo further states, “It is crucial that Democrats remind voters early and often that… MAGA Republicans are focusing their power on advocating for dangerous and unpopular abortion bans.”
Pro-Life groups like Students for Life America and Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America are calling on conservatives not to shy away from advocating Pro-Life principles.
Fortunately, some Republicans seem to be taking that advice, and McEnany’s, to heart.
For example, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee said of Ohio, “If [Ohio Democratic senator] Sherrod Brown wants to run on his support for child gender reassignment surgery and painful abortions up to the moment of birth, we’ll welcome that.”
