A recording Many Americans support abortion rights and voted the much-hyped in Tuesday’s crucial midterm elections potential “red wave” turned out to be more of a trickle, a bunch of anti-abortion candidates lostand voters chose abortion rights in all five states voting measures.

Anti-abortion groups have taken a breath and now solemnly understand their position is deeply unpopular, with a full two-thirds of Americans supporting legal abortion in all or most cases, and turning to advocacy for things that actually help people, like universal health coverage, a higher minimum wage, and affordable childcare. Lol I’m just kidding you!

“We have a popular position. The biggest problem we have is a lack of leadership at the top.” Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser said at a press briefing on Wednesday.

Dannenfelser spoke specifically about her side losing crucial election action in Michigan and Kentucky and said party leaders and committees had not devoted enough resources to the struggle. She called out Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) by name for not doing more to support Kentucky’s anti-abortion effort, which below average Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s double-digit share of the vote.

SBA Pro-Life is actually the same group threatened candidates for the non-public support of Nationwide ban on abortion at 15 weeks, introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). And Dannenfelser insisted Wednesday that the Republican candidates lost because — wait for it — they avoided talk more about it their plans to ban abortion. she quotes The defeat of Dr. Mehmet Oz vs. John Fetterman as an advertisement for this behavior:

The group that spent more than $78 million in the midterm election, Senate candidate Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania as a prime example of what they called “the ostrich strategy.”

“We broke our backs to help him win, but he did a very poor job saying what he would do for the people of Pennsylvania on the pro-life front,” she complained and cited Oz’s refusal to answer whether he would vote for a federal ban on abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. He and other Republicans lost, she added, because they “hoped the issue would go away,” in what turned out to be “political misconduct.”

Abortion was the second most important issue in Exit surveys nationwide and the number one problem in Pennsylvania special but safe margin. Fetterman beat Oz by more than 4 pointsand it stands to reason that the margin would be even larger if Oz had publicly supported a national abortion ban.

Another anti-abortion group looked at the results in Wisconsin – where voters re-elected Governor Tony Evers (D) and prevented the State House from getting one veto-proof supermajority – and did not conclude that their position was lost, but that next time they simply had to appeal to young voters.

“We’ve had an historic number of young people voting, and abortion has been a driving factor for these young people,” said Gracie Skogman, spokeswoman for Wisconsin Right to Life. said Politically. “Unfortunately, the pro-life movement doesn’t share our approach to life.”

Remarkably, not everyone in the room is so delusional. Now that the anti-abortion ballot measures have been rejected by voters Kentucky this week and Kansas in August, a leader recognized that these actions posed a risk to his side. Politically wrote: “Anti-abortion groups did not seem keen to push the issue into national referenda, with Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life, calling it a “risky tool often used to increase voter anxiety, to reach the vote.”

Fortunately for them and unfortunately for people who value physical autonomy, only 17 states Allow such citizen-led ballot initiatives because conservative lawmakers don’t want popular things to happen. Anti-abortion groups are extremely angry about the election
