Nancy Pelosi Believes Abortion Is A Winning Issue For Democrats

( – California Rep. Nancy Pelosi is calling on fellow Democrats to put the issue of abortion front and center in their campaigns for 2024.

The former Speaker of the House says she believes the Republican stance will be their biggest losing issue during the 2024 campaign season. She appeared at an interview on Sunday on MSNBC with Biden’s former Press Secretary on her show “Inside with Jen Psaki.”

Pelosi called abortion a winning issue for her party and said it was the main determining factor in an overall win for Democrats in the 2022 midterms. She said that “everybody said [Democrats were] going to lose 30, 40 seats,” but that the party only lost 5. She credited women voters as a primary reason.

Days before her remarks, on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s rolling back of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, former President Donald Trump boasted at a recent Faith and Freedom conference in Washington, DC, that he would end late-term abortions nationwide if elected for a second term. He also called himself the “most pro-life president” in American history.

Trump’s former vice president, Mike Pence, who is running for president against his former boss, also gave remarks on the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision. He believes abortions should be banned after 15 weeks nationwide as a “minimum standard.”

Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Trump’s number one challenger for the GOP nomination in 2024, banned abortions in his home state after six weeks, with notable exceptions for incest, rape, and a threat to the mother’s life.

Whether or not Pelosi is correct about Democrats having an edge on the issue, it remains, perhaps, the number one dividing line between the two parties, even more so than gender ideology or the border. The two sides will surely go head to head on abortion during the presidential election cycle.
