A recent survey from Pew Research reveals that, with each passing year, Democrats become more strident, more hardened, more vicious…in their support for abortion.
It is hardly a secret that Democrats have been so-called “pro-choice” for really as long as any of us can remember, but what is truly startling is how embracing they’ve become in recent years for the idea of what is, essentially, limitless abortion.
As reported by the Christian Post, Pew found that the share of Democrats who think abortion should be legal in basically all cases has jumped – dramatically – from 66 percent in 2007 to 79 percent here in 2016.
And I thought we were supposed to be evolving as a society...
Particularly disturbing to many is that it is women, the supposed nurturers of children and babies, who are leading the charge toward an “anything goes” abortion environment in America. As Pew details it, “This shift in Democratic support is especially pronounced among women. Currently, 85% of Democratic women think abortion should be legal in all or most cases, up 18 points from March. This is the highest level of support for legal abortion among Democratic women in the past two decades.”
As a matter of fact, speaking of men, support for abortion within the body of Democratic males has actually dropped a bit; according to Pew, the percentage of men in the party who think abortion is fine in all cases has actually gone down since March, from 75 percent to 71 percent. It is still an enormous number, to be sure, but does represent a move in the more humane, and human, direction, nevertheless.
That’s something, I guess.
But not much.
