Left-wing extremism on abortion causing DEMS to become more pro-life: Survey

By Jon Dougherty

As Democrats in states like New York, Maryland, and Virginia enact or push for expanding abortion rights nearly to the point of infanticide, American attitudes toward the procedure are shifting dramatically, according to a new survey.

After blue state Democrats proposed or passed bills allowing a woman to have an abortion late in the third term this year, “a dramatic shift” has occurred in Americans’ attitudes toward abortion policy, said Barbara Carvalho, director of the latest Marist poll that was commissioned by the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic group.

The survey found that Americans are just as likely to identify as pro-life as they are pro-choice, at 47 percent each. Just last month, a similar Marist survey found that most Americans were likely to identify as pro-choice (55 percent) as pro-life (38 percent — a 17-point gap), Axios reported.

“The survey also found that 80 percent of Americans support abortion being limited to the first three months of pregnancy, an increase of 5 percentage points since last month’s Marist poll,” the news site noted.

Marist has been gauging American attitudes regarding abortion for more than 10 years. Carvalho told Axios that the current survey marked the first time since 2009 that as many Americans or more identified as pro-life than as pro-choice.

What the pollster found most significant, however, is that Democrat respondents drive the huge shift in numbers and, in particular, those under the age of 45. The poll this month found that 34 percent of Democratic respondents now identify as pro-life versus 64 percent pro-choice. Last month, the numbers were 20 percent and 75 percent respectively.

Clearly, far-Left Democrats in blue states have pushed way past the limit most Americans believe is acceptable policy when it comes to abortion.

Among all Americans 45 years or under, 47 say they are pro-life while 48 percent are pro-choice. But last month, those numbers were massively different: 28 percent to 65 percent, respectively.

“This has been a measure that has been so stable over time. To see that kind of change was surprising,” Carvalho told Axios. “And the increased discussion [of late-term abortion] in the public forum in the past month appears to have made the biggest difference in how people identify on the issue.”

The survey results come as Republicans have been keying on the issue since the State of The Union when the POTUS Trump harnessed the outrage over Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s comments about keeping newborn babies “comfortable” before the mother and her doctor decided to end its life as well as a New York law that now allows for abortions up to the moment of birth.

The GOP is pushing for a ban on late-term abortions.

Aborting a ready-to-be-born baby, or, even worse, aborting a newly-born baby is murder. Leftists have no respect for human life, despite their posturing about women’s rights, LGBT rights, and all the other identity politics they use to fool voters. They are on board with the anti-America, pro-socialism, pro-corruption, pro-pedophile, pro-NWO world dictatorship agenda. Infanticide is their way of getting lots of baby body parts to sell. My blue state representatives responded to my emails denouncing late-term and after-birth ‘abortions’ as murder that they support a woman’s right to choose.

Killing babies without conscience is the living manifestation of pure evil. This is what happens when society rejects God. When God is driven out of our family, schools, government and all entanglements of everyday life, evil fills up that void. Morality then takes a dramatic shift to the extreme left and our minds are lured by that shift. What was once considered vile and abhorrent behavior has now transformed into normal human behavior. Rejection of God is the acceptance of evil. There is a solution to all of this chaos but it requires of us to make a very personal… Read more »

What doctor in his right mind would kill a baby. The democrats have completely gone off the rails.

If killing a newborn baby becomes lawfully accepted then what comes next? Will the Dems and the Left then pass another law stating that’s ok to kill Christians or anyone else they just don’t like? This is where their rationale is leading to. They are pulling this country into immorality and destruction.

Making baby killing legal does not make it right. It simply frees people from punishment for doing so. These people are claiming it is their right. They keep repeating that word “rights”. No one has the right to kill. Murder by any other name is still murder.
