Democratic Party has taken ‘extreme’ position on abortion: Kellyanne Conway

Former Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway knocked the Democratic Party for veering “to the extreme on the issue of abortion” Tuesday on “Special Report.”

“The Democratic Party has really veered to the extreme on the issue of abortion,” she told host Bret Baier. 

“A majority of Americans disagree with the Democratic Party platform, with [President] Biden, [Vice President] Harris and the rest of them that we should have taxpayer-funded abortion, late-term abortions, sex-selection abortion, forcing medical professionals to perform abortions if they have religious or [conscientious] objections to that.” 

“So this is not binary as pro-life, pro-choice. It’s a very complicated issue that brings together the law, morality, religion, gender and, of course, politics.”

ABORTION SURVIVOR REACTS TO LEAKED SUPREME COURT DECISION DRAFT THAT WOULD OVERRULE ROE V. WADE

Conway reacted to Monday night’s leak of a Supreme Court draft opinion in a case that could overturn Roe v. Wade.

She went on to call for the court to remain a “judicially independent branch of government impervious to political pressure.” The leak should “upset” both sides of the political aisle, she added.

Conway found it “very curious” that Democrats were not discussing abortion until Tuesday, adding that they did not consider it a “strong issue” in their polling.

All polling shows immigration, inflation, jobs and border security as leading issues, she reported. Abortion is a “base issue” for both the left and right, with pro-lifers believing that it kills infants and those who see it as a “women’s health” issue being galvanized by the Court’s draft opinion to flock to the polls in the midterm elections.

“But I think the left will take this a little too far and not realize how much people are hurting at the gas pump, in the grocery store, how concerned they are about border security, national security as well.”
