In a recent appearance on Fox News, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) shot down the notion that this latest interest in the abortion issue would motivate far-left Progressive voters and impact the mid-term elections.
The junior senator told Fox News that he predicts “millions of devout pro-life activists, who have toiled in the vineyards for years to protect innocent unborn children” will also be galvanized if the draft ruling becomes a final decision.
The recent leak of the Supreme Court’s draft ruling on Roe v. Wade and the potential overturning of the 1973 landmark court case that established a woman’s constitutional right to choose to have an abortion has elevated abortion rights to a top topic of discussion.
Cotton went on to describe Democrats as “extreme” in their support of “late-term, partial-birth, abortion, and other gruesome practices." Cotton believes that life begins at conception and that the fetus has constitutional rights.
It is still unknown who leaked the Supreme Court's draft ruling.
