How the Republican Party Is Losing Its Way

It all began with abortion.

Republicans couldn’t resist the issue.

For years they’d say, “overturn Roe v. Wade.”

Then they got their wish.

When it was overturned, Republican controlled states went on an orgy of anti-abortion legislation.

The party of “limited government” had a legislation spree.

It took on all the elements of a religious revival—God, Country, and… Anti-Abortion!

Religious conservatives took over the Party of Lincoln.

Lincoln ended slavery. But modern-day Republicans reinstituted a new kind of slavery—women of child-bearing age suddenly lost the right to choose.

If they get pregnant in various Republican controlled states, they instantly become child-bearing wards of the state.

If the woman has a supportive spouse or partner, that person also loses the power of choice.

Finally, doctors no longer are allowed to honestly advise their pregnant patients, especially if a potential complication would justify an abortion.

Back during the 2022 mid-term elections, pundits were dumbfounded as to why the expected Republican Wave fizzled at the political shoreline.

A big part of the reason for the “wave that wasn’t” was the public perception that Republicans were a bunch of anti-abortion zealots.

Surprisingly, Dr. Mehmet Oz, the loser of that race, may have hit the nail on the proverbial head, back when he debated John Fetterman.

Oz, when discussing abortion, articulated the Republican’s Achilles heel when he said, “I want women, doctors, local political leaders letting the democracy that always allowed our nation to thrive to put the best ideas forward so that states can decide for themselves.”

Think about that…

“Local political leaders” sitting in with doctors and a woman making a difficult and life-changing decision.

Republicans made abortion a political issue instead of an individual rights issue.

Abortion is the Republican’s Achilles heel.

Meanwhile, pro-choice Republicans have seemingly disappeared. (One hopeful sign in the Republican governor of New Hampshire, Christopher Sununu, who most likely will enter the 2024 Presidential race.)

Independents, a huge key voting bloc in any election, are starting to swing away from the Republican Party.

If the Republican Party wants to regain its lost momentum and relevance, it needs to refocus on limited government, fiscal responsibility… and tamp down the anti-abortion zealotry.
