Republican strategists are saying it’s time to get rid of the “pro-life” moniker.
In a closed-door meeting with Senate Republicans earlier this week, the head of a super PAC allied with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell warned that polling shows that “pro-life” no longer resonates with the party’s voters.
“What intrigued me the most about the results was that ‘pro-choice’ and ‘pro-life’ means something different now, that people see being pro-life as being against all abortions — at all levels,” Sen. Kevin Cramer, a North Dakota Republican, told NBC News, which first reported on the meeting.
The rethinking of the label follows a series of election losses for Republicans following the Supreme Court ruling that ended nationwide abortion access, sending abortion decision-making to the states.
The high court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson, the case that overturned Roe v. Wade, shifted voters’ opinions on the terms pro-life and pro-choice, according to the super PAC’s polling. The polling results were shown to the senators in the meeting by Steven Law, a former aide for Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican.
