Running for Texas Governor, Abortion is a Losing Issue for Wendy Davis

Wendy Davis’s recent entrance into the race for Texas governor has garnered national media attention. A few weeks ago, Democratic political consultant Jason Stanford authored a Politico op-ed claiming that Davis’s position on abortion will actually help her during her upcoming campaign. His primary argument involves polling data that purportedly shows significant percentages of moderates, suburbanites, and soft Republicans in Texas think abortion should be a “legal and personal choice.”

Stanford also thinks that Davis’s abortion stance may help her win the votes of suburban Texas women. His argument is unpersuasive.

Political scientists know the results of abortion polls are very sensitive to the wording of the survey questions. The poll Stanford cites — which was clearly worded to bias respondents toward a “pro-choice” position — still showed that less than 35 percent of those in certain key demographic groups in Texas support legal abortion. Furthermore, Senator Davis’s chosen conduit into the national spotlight was her outspoken support for brutal late-term abortions — beyond the fifth and sixth month of gestation. This is something that is strongly opposed by most Americans, especially in a red state like Texas.

Indeed, there is plenty of survey data indicating that abortion after 20 weeks of gestation is unpopular. Three separate national polls conducted this summer by National Journal, Rasmussen, and NBC/Wall Street Journal all indicated that a clear plurality of Americans support banning abortion after 20 weeks of gestation. Furthermore, key demographic groups support 20-week abortion bans. The two polls which broke down the results by age found a plurality of young adults supported such a ban. Even more important, in each of these three polls, women were actually more likely than men to support banning abortion after 20 weeks gestation.

Furthermore, Davis appears to be distancing herself from the abortion issue. During a Twitter townhall this summer, Senator Davis refused to answer any questions about her own abortion stance. She answered twelve questions on a range of topics including infrastructure, payday lending, and college-tuition benefits. However, abortion was never once discussed. Additionally, Davis’s first campaign ad was released earlier this month. It makes no mention of her position on abortion.

Wendy Davis’s 13-hour filibuster of a 20-week abortion ban this past June certainly raised her national profile. It may well help her raise money from supporters of legal abortion outside Texas. However, there is little evidence that Senator Davis’s extreme position on abortion has endeared her to Texas voters.

Survey: Most Americans say abortion is moral issue

When it comes to issues involving human embryos, most Americans think that having an abortion is a moral issue, according to a new survey analysis by the Pew Research Center. By contrast, the public does not view stem cell research or in vitro fertilization as much of a moral issue as they do abortion.

Abortion, survey

Asked whether abortion, embryonic stem cell research, non-embryonic stem cell research and using in vitro fertilization is morally acceptable, morally wrong or not a moral issue, Americans were split on most of the issues. However, the majority of U.S. adults (49%) say they personally consider abortion to be morally wrong. Only about a quarter (23%) say they do not consider having an abortion to be a moral issue, and even fewer (15%) view abortion as morally acceptable.

Asked about the morality of medical research that uses embryonic stem cells, more than a third of U.S. adults (36%) say they do not consider such research to be a moral issue. Roughly four-in-ten (42%) say the same about stem cell research that does not involve human embryos.

The new survey findings show that the percentage of U.S. adults who consider abortion to be morally wrong (49%) far exceeds the percentage that expresses this view about in vitro fertilization (12%), non-embryonic stem cell research (16%) or embryonic stem cell research (22%).

Only 15% of the public thinks that having an abortion is morally acceptable. By comparison, about a third of U.S. adults say they personally view IVF or either form of stem cell research as a morally acceptable practice.

These are among the key findings of a recent nationwide survey by the Pew Research Center’s Religion & Public Life Project. The survey was conducted March 21-April 8, 2013, on cellphones and landlines, among a nationally representative sample of 4,006 adults. The margin of error for the survey is plus or minus 2.1 percentage points.

Among other key findings:

Opinions on the morality of abortion differ widely among religious groups. Fully three-quarters of white evangelical Protestants consider having an abortion morally wrong, as do about two-thirds of Hispanic Catholics (64%). A majority of black Protestants (58%) and about half of white Catholics (53%) say the same. Fewer white mainline Protestants (38%) and religiously unaffiliated adults (25%) hold this view. Relatively small percentages of people in all religious groups consider it morally acceptable to have an abortion. However, among the unaffiliated, roughly equal shares say having an abortion is morally acceptable (28%) and morally wrong (25%).

There are sizable differences in opinions about the moral acceptability of abortion by partisanship, political ideology and education, but few differences when it comes to gender and age. For example, about two-thirds of Republicans and independents who lean toward the Republican Party consider having an abortion morally wrong (64%), compared with 38% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents.

Differences of opinion on embryonic stem cell research among religious groups are relatively modest in comparison with attitudes toward abortion. Among the major religious groups, white evangelical Protestants are most likely to say embryonic stem cell research is morally wrong. But there are differences of opinion when it comes to partisanship and ideology. About three-quarters of Democrats and independents who lean toward the Democratic Party consider embryonic stem cell research to be either morally acceptable or not a moral issue. Republicans and Republican-leaning independents are more inclined to consider such research morally wrong.

Those who say that having an abortion is morally acceptable also are more likely to say that embryonic stem cell research is morally acceptable (67%). And those who say that having an abortion is morally wrong also are more inclined to consider embryonic stem cell research to be morally wrong (36% do so). However, a majority of those who think abortion is morally wrong consider embryonic stem cell research to be either morally acceptable (23%) or not a moral issue (29%).

When asked about the moral acceptability of medical research using stem cells that do not derive from human embryos, the overwhelming majority of adults say that non-embryonic stem cell research is either morally acceptable (33%) or is not a moral issue (42%); only 16% say such research is morally wrong.

There are only modest differences in opinion among social and demographic groups – including religious groups – about the moral acceptability of IVF. Those with at least a college degree are more inclined to say that using IVF is morally acceptable. But there are no significant differences on this issue by political party, and only modest differences by ideology; more liberals and moderates than conservatives say IVF is not a moral issue.

The full report is available on the website of the Pew Research Center’s Religion & Public Life Project.

Abortions Kill Babies, They’re Not Just a Policy Issue

The Daily Show’s John Oliver caught Secular Pro-Life’s attention because of an ignorant remark he made about a North Carolina Senate bill that addressed both abortion safety regulations and Sharia law. Oliver said, “Let me just understand this: You’re adding abortion restrictions to legislation banning the making of laws based upon religious belief. That’s like passing a bill banning high fructose corn syrup, and adding a provision naming the state animal the gummy bear!”

But news reports, which Oliver apparently avoided, tell a different story: “The Senate bill was inserted into an unrelated House measure to prohibit North Carolina judges from applying part of Islamic Sharia law or other foreign law in certain cases.”

So was Oliver really out of the loop or did he intend to make a mockery of the fact that abortion is actually an act that results in death for a member of the human family?

In Virginia, the state’s abortion advocates are telling their supporters that the state attorney general, Ken Cuccinelli, is supporting pro-life pregnancy care centers, which the group claims manipulate and lie to women. In other words, if a pregnancy center shares the facts with an expectant mother—including the fact that she is carrying a baby—then they are misleading their clients! Oh really?

And it gets worse. In Wisconsin, the state attorney general, J. B. Van Hollen, has said that the state’s three Catholic hospital systems may be violating the law by denying admitting privileges to abortion doctors. The state Department of Justice argues that “federal law ‘provides that hospitals accepting federal funds may not discriminate against a physician because that physician has participated in or refused to participate in abortions.’”

The state is appealing at this point, but one would guess that the pro-aborts will win this one, particularly in view of the fact that one of the physicians on the credentials committee of Wheaton Franciscan St. Joseph in Milwaukee has already said that he feels Catholic hospitals could be willing to grant privileges to abortionists.

And the list goes on and on. So the question is really as simple as this: Will the law change the way people perceive the child prior to birth or does the culture—composed of individuals like you and me—first have to see the baby as who he is so that everyone can understand that the act of abortion is a heinous crime?

In a challenging article, James Cole opines, “In a free republic citizens change laws by electing representatives and executives who reflect their wishes. This inescapably requires participation in politics and in lobbying. In America, to shun these areas because of temporary setbacks or one’s personal distaste for politics and the legislative process is to shirk our responsibilities to defend life.”

While he is correct, his premise is valid only if those voting are educated on fundamental truth—and then understand it and believe it. And that is where the problem comes into play.

The fact is that most Americans who want their wishes reflected by those they elect happen to be people who do NOT see the baby and who are so apathetic they do not care about abortion one way or the other.

If, on the other hand, these same citizens were asked to vote on whether or not it was preferable in law to regulate how mothers and fathers should go about taking the lives of their two-year-old children, do you think there would be room for debate in the first place? Don’t be silly. Of course not.

And that is the point. Abortion murders an individual human being every single time it occurs. Until that truth resonates with the folks casting the votes, who would be silly enough to think the problem will be solved politically?

Excuse me, people! We are talking about children; we are talking about human beings; we are talking about babies! Get it?

Krauthammer: ‘Double Standard Is the Real Issue’ in DOJ Scandal

Charles Krauthammer said the main issue surrounding the Department of Justice scandal is the double standard with which the administration deals with leaks.

“I think you have to distinguish between the demand for a leak investigation and doing the unprecedented of naming a reporter as a co-conspirator,” said Krauthammer on Fox News’ Special Report. Looking into what could be a national security threat is one thing, he said, but “the other type of leak, the type that would pump up the president,” is handled quite a bit differently.

“The issue is, was there a double standard?…Did anyone look into the obvious place where this would originate in the White House? Was anybody looked at?” Krauthammer asked. “So I think that the double standard is the real issue here.”

That’s the story? Jaw-dropping NYT headline on IRS scandal: ‘Gives GOP an issue to seize on’

Bingo. But not to lapdogs who are too busy begging for an extra bowl of kibble.

Yep. Remember, the media turned Romney’s statement on Benghazi into a date that will live in infamy. 

The fish wrap of record finally promoted the IRS’ targeting of conservatives to the first page, after attempting to bury it.

But if you think the actual story is the chilling actions of the IRS, guess again!

That’s right. Check out the headline via screenshot:

NYT-IRS-GOP-headline

And there’s more in the article itself:

Since last year’s elections, Republicans in Congress have struggled for traction on their legislative efforts, torn between conservatives who drove the agenda after their 2010 landslide and new voices counseling a shift in course to reflect President Obama’s re-election and the loss of Republican seats in the House and the Senate.

But the accusations of I.R.S. abuse are sure to fuel an effort that appears to be uniting dispirited Republicans and their conservative political base: investigating Mr. Obama and his administration. Republicans are pushing a portrayal of an administration overreaching its authority and punishing its enemies.

Poor “dispirited” Republicans finally have something around which to rally. So they’ve been targeted by the IRS. Big whoop! Like Obama henchman David Plouffe said, they totally had it coming for “flourishing” and all.

Citizens on Twitter are disgusted and rightfully so.

Heh. How nefarious!

For shame, lapdogs. For shame.
