Taking into account recent Wisconsin state supreme court loss, WSJ editors warn GOP swing-state hopefuls to tread softly on abortion issue as leftist judge spearheaded her victory on the issue

"... The judge focused her campaign largely on abortion, hammering Wisconsin’s near outright abortion ban that Republicans would not amend, according to the WSJ editorial board. Protasiewicz’ victory proves that abortion is still front of mind for voters and could be a determining factor in 2024, according to the WSJ editorial board.

The Republicans must shift their pro-life policies, as an outright abortion ban is not popular among voters in swing states, the WSJ editorial board argued. The abortion issue could result in another GOP loss in the 2024 presidential election if they don’t lessen their restrictions."

Trump warned about the same thing concerning the many losses in the midterm elections. He said the abortion issue was "mishandled" by many of those who lost.

Problem is, you can't sell women (and many men) on the idea that an embryo or fetus is a "person" until it's born and physically separate from the mother. It would be far better to concentrate on defunding all government (tax-paid) funding of all medical procedures, and leave health as a problem for individuals to solve with their own resources and ingenuity. Leave it to individuals to preserve their own health at their own expense.

    Of course the real issue is the left cheats like the criminals they are.

      Voting solely on being pro-abortion is like handing The Constitution over to a Marxist with a paper shredder.

        Do you mean by pro-abortion that one may be forced to have an abortion or do you mean that one may chose to have a child or has no choice not to. The dishonesty given by the choices 'pro-life' and 'pro-choice', immoral because of being politicized with the threat of force, morality depending upon freely choosing an action. Why did the imaginary Adam and Eve ire God? They became moral beings by choosing their actions. Before that they were just amoral play things for God's pleasure.

          All I was talking about was voting Democrat on one issue while ignoring all the other evil things that party is currently up to such weaponizing the DOJ and grooming little kids to be something they are not and butchering their body parts. Not to mention such things as ignoring what The Constitution says about protecting our borders and freedom of speech now only being protected for radical libs, etc., etc, etc!
          The Democrat Party is no longer that of JFK.

    11 percentage points is a lot of cheating. It's a lot easier to write off a loss as cheating rather than consider there are a lot of single-issue female voters, and they will show up even if nobody else does.

    I personally am opposed to tax-paid abortions, but I'm opposed to ALL tax-paid healthcare without exception.

    It IS an issue. And right now the Dem/Libs are using it to their advantage.
    In Wisconsin, the Democrat Governor wants it legal any time, any where, right up to (and maybe after birth). The Republicans (who control the senate and assembly) want something more reasonable (3-4 months, etc). But why would the governor negotiate when they can win over the issue.

    With Protaseiwicz's victory all the Scott Walker reforms will be shot down.
    1. Voter ID
    2. Right to work
    3. Conceal carry
    4. ACT 10 (the Walker union, tax reforms, etc) that saved local governments MILLIONS of $$$

    Wisconsin will go back to the tax and spend hell that is was back in 2008.

    The only way to keep those reforms is to get them passed as consititutional amendments. But that take 2-3 years to pass in Wisconsin.

      Ask 100 people what is the top 10 things that concern them to the point they have trouble sleeping at night, if one person says Infanticide is their top issue, I'd be shocked I would then ask them: What would Jesus say?
      Some little points to keep in-mind:
      > They sell the parts, including the blood.
      > Minorities far outnumber Caucasians in being coached into Infanticide.
      > This is just what Eugenics preached for over 100 years, and still does.

      I'm old, I've seen a lot in my sad things in my years. But I have never met a single women who didn't regret killing their prodigy. Maybe that should be part of the consoling, asking those women who killed their offspring, what they think about it now? Everyone that I know who did it, went on to have children that they love more than their own lives. I can't imagine the sleepless nights they suffer just thinking about the one that they didn't allow to live. Just can't fathom it.

    Aside from the lack of voting integrity whatever, the GOP lacks any spine or conviction. The entire purpose of factions (political parties and special interest groups) is to advance specific points that those factions hold as critical. abortion, aside from tax dollar, is nothing the fedgov should be talking about. Big tent is a bullshit leftist approach that allows any angle to be taken, a lack of spine/conviction.

    The abortion issue needs to be depoliticized. It’s easy to fall into emotional traps we have set for ourselves. Our enemies know how to use wedge issues to tilt the machine left or right. SCOTUS knew exactly what they were doing when they kicked over that hornets nest.
    A few key questions are:
    Do parents have dominion over their children?
    Do people have dominion over their bodies?
    The hypocrisy on both sides when considering these two questions is staggering.
    My personal view is.....if God is just....there will be a reckoning. We read this. Elohim didn’t send Yeshua Hamashiach into the world to condemn it. The world condemns itself just fine. He is the way out of condemnation. Everybody chooses. Everybody. To quote Saint Geddy “If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice.”

    Look into the race a little closer and one finds that - yet again - this was more about a poorly-run campaign by a Republican than a single issue. The Democrat was also significantly better funded, especially by out-of-State interests. It is this last point that deeply concerns me.

    It is my opinion and stand that those who do NOT fall within a given representation jurisdiction actually infringe upon the rights of those who do when they donate to candidates for representation outside their own. And I would fully support a Constitutional measure to codify this recognition. In my opinion, this would go a long way towards limiting the reach of elitists like Soros and others who seek to corrupt an entire nation through their money.

    Can't disagree with any of this. It is precisely impossible to convince many people (me for example) that life begins at conception, and an unwavering position for "illegality" is untenable to the middle, seriously jeopardizing a Republican win in 2024.

    "leave health as a problem for individuals to solve with their own resources and ingenuity."
    And leaving everything else that's possible to individuals too.
    There should be hope because "Choice" is in the word pro-Choice, but I know it's not that simple.
    I met Protasiewicz at her fundraiser, and I made sure to remind people I know to be sure to vote. She seems like a good person, but her fundraiser was just like a political fundraiser. All the other local politicians were there, sometimes volunteering the words that she couldn't say as a supposedly non-partisan jurist. I supported her, so I obiously think she's better than the alternative, but it's sort of un-real how the court has become so nakedly political.

      I agree. I don't buy the "health care is a human right" argument. Health care is a service to be provided. Like any other service, it should be paid for by the person receiving the service.

      Health insurance (and particularly "free" health insurance) merely allows medical providers to jack up rates, because in most cases the patient has no incentive to try to reduce costs.

        Yes, you can't have a right to someone's work.

        Health insurance tied with a program negotiation prices, as major health insurance does in the US, removes pricing signal from the market. It leaves an illusion of a market. A cycnical view is law makers were balancing varoius desires: a) the desire for medical services to appear without paying for them, b) an appearance of a free market, c) the desire for existing insurance companies and their staffs to have something to do.
