According to reports, activist Democrats in several states are working to get abortion-related ballot measures registered for the 2024 election, but it’s not certain whether this would boost the Democrats’ voter participation.
Since 2022, Democrats have used opposition to abortion limitation as a central platform issue, most notably in Virginia, when the party secured a majority in the General Assembly.
Political analysts who spoke to the media were cautious about the prospects for success of attempts to coordinate referendums on abortion in the hopes of increasing voter turnout.
William Francis Buckley O’Reilly, a Republican political adviser, warned the DCNF that Democrats would likely over-emphasize their agenda in the blue and purple states on abortion. Voters will become bored with hyperbole and move on. The topic offers Democrats a little edge, but crime, price increases, and President Biden’s old age will surpass it at the ballot box.
Peter Roff, a Newsweek political analyst and writer, explained that politicians who can prove their opponents are the most radical will win.
Republicans running as unborn protectors have the challenge that most pro-choice folks believe it will stop there. That abortion won’t go beyond the first term of pregnancy.
That will hurt GOP candidates in New York and the rest of the nation unless they can convince enough people.
It has been claimed that four states—Nebraska, Nevada, Colorado, and Arizona—are planning 2024 abortion-related measures.
A coalition of left-leaning organizations formally started their campaign to entrench the ‘right to abortion’ in Nebraska’s constitution.
Reports show Pro-life groups are already speaking out opposing the campaign, expressing concern that it might legalize dangerous late-term abortions and limit parental rights.
Pro-life organizations in Michigan, headed by Michigan Right to Life, have launched a lawsuit against Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer and other state authorities in response to Proposal 3, a constitutional amendment that voters approved in 2022 and which purports to provide a right to abortion in Michigan.
