With the 2020 U.S. elections already underway, American voters are taking a closer look at the candidates’ views on a wide range of issues. Abortion is one of the most divisive topics for American voters, and Republican candidates are struggling to find a winning strategy on this issue. The Republican Party has been vocal in its stance that abortion should be restricted or even illegalized, emphasizing their “pro-life” views and appealing to conservative voters. However, this hardline stance could place the Republican Party at a disadvantage as more and more Americans favor a woman’s right to choose access to abortion services. Recent polls show that only 36% of Americans approve of the current Republican stance on the issue, with most people favoring access to abortion services and contraception. The Republican Party has seen some success in its anti-abortion tactics, such as passing legislation that largely restricts access to abortion in many states. However, these policies are not popular with the majority of the American public, so the Republican Party may want to consider a more moderate approach to abortion. The party could potentially win over more voters by changing its pro-life stance to a more moderate view that acknowledges the complexity of the issue and focuses on reducing unplanned pregnancies through increased access to contraception and sex education. A less extreme view on abortion may also allow the Republican Party to emphasize the importance of religious freedom in the discussion over abortion. Whatever approach the Republican Party decides to take, it has a tough road ahead of it if it wants to be successful in the upcoming election. It will need to find a winning message that appeals to both conservative and more moderate voters, while also recognizing the deeply held beliefs about abortion that shape all sides of the debate.
