The GOP Is Waging a War on Abortion Rights, But You Wouldn't Know It If You Watched the RNC
The Washington Post reports the word "abortion" was not mentioned a single time from the stage during the first three days of the Republican National Convention. Reporter Amy Littlefield, abortion access correspondent at The Nation, says the silence from Trump and others at this week's RNC in Milwaukee does not reflect a change in attitude from the Republican Party, which is still fiercely opposed to reproductive rights. "Republicans can read the polls. They know that abortion has triumphed in all seven instances where it's been on the ballot since the Dobbs decision. They know that a rising number of people support abortion rights," says Littlefield, who predicts that "abortion is going to have a huge impact on this election" and calls for "a Reproductive Justice New Deal."
