Are far-left progressives jumping the shark when it comes to late-term abortions? That may be the case based on a 2018 Gallup poll showing the vast majority of Americans believe abortions during the last three months of pregnancy should be illegal.
Fox News @ Night’s Shannon Bream had a panel discussion about comments made by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam earlier in the day.
Support for late-term abortions is a great litmus test to determine how outrageous a person’s pro-abortion stance is. There are plenty of sensible, non-radicalized Democrats (and some Republicans) who believe abortion should be legal to a point. There are also those who believe they are acceptable essentially on-demand when the reason is a medical one such as harm to the mother or abnormalities for the fetus.
These are not the most valid positions to hold, in my humble opinion, but at least there’s a certain level of sense to them from multiple perspectives. It takes a singular perspective to believe late-term abortions are acceptable in nearly any circumstance, which is why this litmus test can act to alert Democrats which of their candidates are reasonable and which ones are in an unstoppable nosedive towards the Communist fringe of the left.
Sometimes it feels like an uphill battle fighting public sentiment on abortion, but at least we have the most heinous instances of abortion with which a strong majority of Americans can agree.
