If We Treat the Abortion Battle as a Land War, We Can Win
Since the fall of Roe v. Wade, the pro-life movement has struggled to curb the growth of abortion. Pro-life advocates have lost five votes on constitutional amendments in California, Vermont, Kentucky, Kansas, Montana, and Michigan.
For several decades, polling indicates that Americans want abortion to remain legal in most cases. Despite the overturning of Roe, the pro-life movement has yet to win over the American public.
In this episode of “The Mark Harrington Show”, Peter Range from Ohio Right to Life will join Mark as a guest. Peter will discuss the likelihood of pro-abortion advocates introducing an abortion amendment in Ohio and suggest ways to defeat it.
The pro-life movement must now focus on defense. To effectively defend winnable states, the movement should retreat from “occupied states”. However, the pro-life movement’s lack of cooperation may prevent such a strategy from being adopted. Groups and leaders are often protective of their resources and donors. This strategy may require reallocating resources to battleground states, at least temporarily.
If the pro-life movement doesn’t change its approach and work together, it could be in an even worse position in five years than it was before Roe v. Wade was overturned. The movement risks losing the gains it has made over recent decades if it doesn’t fight together.
It’s time to treat this battle as a land war and make strategic decisions to retreat and defend winnable states. Once these states are secure, the movement can start to retake the ground it has lost.
