GOP Senate hopeful Kari Lake getting attacked from both sides after her flip-flop on abortion

Republicans still haven’t learned their lesson on the important issue of life.

And with Congress and the White House up for grabs this November, the GOP’s continued sell-out on the issue has pro-life activists planning to stay home.

That’s why GOP Senate hopeful Kari Lake is getting attacked from both sides after her flip-flop on abortion.

Arizona Republican Senate hopeful Kari Lake tried to placate pro-abortion activists by coming out against Arizona’s strong pro-life law.

Destroying her base to appease the pro-abortion lobby

Lake’s move had the expected results.

She got blasted by both pro-abortion and pro-life activists during a visit to the University of Arizona after her flip-flop.

Lake made her pro-abortion comments after Arizona’s state Supreme Court decision which upheld the state’s strong pro-life law passed in 1864, which went into effect after the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade.

Lake completely flip-flopped on the law.

In 2022 she called it a “great law” but now says she opposes it, and she called on fellow Republicans to repeal it.

Lake, who has described herself as “Trump in heels” faced major criticism at her University of Arizona campaign stop.

During the event, which was organized by the University of Arizona’s College Republicans, Lake immediately faced questions from the crowd confronting her on abortion.

“The Republican Party has taken such a staunch stance on no abortion,” a student said before referencing the state Supreme Court’s Tuesday ruling. “Why such drastic change in the way you talk about it?” asked the student.

This prompted applause from many in the crowd, some of whom were wearing college Democrat T-shirts.

The student’s question was very similar to the tactics Lake’s probable Democrat challenger, Congressman Ruben Gallego (D-AZ 3) has been using against Lake on a daily basis since her flip-flop, referring to her comments from 2022 supporting the law.

Pro-lifers furious at Lake’s flip-flop

Gallego took to his X account and shared an audio recording of Lake praising the law. “We are going to have a great law that’s already on the books. I believe it’s ARS 13-3603,” said Lake in a 2022 interview.

But ever since the Arizona High Court’s ruling, Lake has decided to refute her past comments. 

She posted her own abortion policy video attacking the law and has even made calls to state lawmakers to push for the repeal of the abortion ban in the Arizona state Legislature.

Lake’s flip-flop has not won her any support from the pro-abortion crowd, but it is losing her support among pro-lifers.

“We thought when you said you supported the 1864 ban, you meant it,” said a man in the crowd at the University of Arizona student union. 

“When the Supreme Court came out and delivered that miracle to this country and freed us from evil, you changed your mind,” added the man, who also called the Arizona state Supreme Court’s decision a gift from heaven.

“I want to know what you say to people who trusted you and believed in you and believe that you are as much in love with babies in this world as them, and that Arizona has undergone a miracle. Why are you against America, that miracle?” asked the man.

Lake tried unsuccessfully to explain her new pro-abortion position.

“First of all, I am pro-life and I love — I want to save as many babies as possible. But you do realize that that law is not going to survive November?” asked Lake. “There’s a ballot, on the November ballot, that is written by Planned Parenthood that will eventually lead to abortion up to nine months,” Lake said.

So, in Kari Lake’s view killing more babies is justified because Planned Parenthood is trying to kill more babies with their referendum.

This is a recipe for political disaster for Lake.
