Contributing sentiments towards policy:

64% : Others, including some incumbents, are avoiding the issue entirely as anti-abortion rhetoric and policies are seen as politically toxic.
60% : The 2022 midterm elections also saw a number of anti-abortion Republicans lose, dissolving GOP hopes for a 'red wave' that year.
57% : The district would have backed Trump under its current lines by 4 points in 2020 and had been held by Republicans since 2011 prior to Gluesenkamp Perez's win.
54% : Also this week, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that the state must adhere to a 160-year-old law banning nearly all abortions, with exceptions only to save the life of the mother, further complicating things for a handful of Republican candidates in the state who have previously expressed anti-abortion stances.
53% : Michelle SteelRunning for: US House, California's 45th Congressional DistrictUS Rep. Michelle Steel, a two-term whose Southern California district would have backed Joe Biden under its current lines, co-sponsored the Life at Conception Act, a bill colloquially known as a personhood law, that would recognize a fertilized egg as a person with equal protections under the 14th Amendment.
48% : Which is why when a recent court ruling in Alabama raised questions as to whether the Life at Conception Act, if passed, would ban IVF, I removed myself from that bill to not create confusion about my support of IVF.
46% : Yvette HerrellRunning for: US House, New Mexico's 2nd Congressional DistrictFormer Rep. Yvette Herrell, a Republican candidate for Congress in New Mexico, was a co-sponsor in 2021 of a bill called the Life at Conception Act, which would recognize a fertilized egg as a person with equal protections under the 14th Amendment and effectively ban abortion in all cases and threaten in vitro fertilization.
45% : Abortion is currently legal in Michigan up to 24 weeks for adults.
29% : Trump himself has shifted on abortion repeatedly over the past 25 years.
25% : Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, announced on Monday that abortion rights should be left to the states, effectively punting on Republican calls for a federal abortion ban in what appears to be an effort to neutralize the politically fraught issue for his party up and down the ticket in November.
24% : Like President Trump, I believe the issue is now correctly left at the state level and applaud his leadership.
20% : Just like President Trump, Kari is opposed to the territorial law and is calling on the State Legislature to fix the issue.
