When the Supreme Court’s draft opinion in Dobbs was leaked in early May, abortion was suddenly thrust into the spotlight, and focus turned to what Americans think about the issue.
While a majority of Americans said abortion should be legal in some cases, according to a Pew Research Center survey, a minority—19 percent—said it should be legal with no exceptions. Shockingly, a growing number of mainstream Democrats fall into this category.
Former Rep. Tim Ryan was advancing this view back in 2019, according to National Review. In the spin room after the debate, I asked Democratic presidential candidate Tim Ryan, a congressman from Ohio who claimed until 2015 that he was pro-life, if it should be legal to for a physically healthy mother to abort a physically healthy baby at 23 weeks into pregnancy. “Well, very few and far between are later in pregnancy. 99 percent of them are I think 21 weeks and under. We don’t know the circumstances of every pregnancy,” Ryan said. “The government should not be involved at all.” Not even in the third trimester? “Well, we don’t know what’s going on. So let the woman make the decision. Keep the government out of it,” Ryan replied. ( NR ) More recently, during a Pennsylvania Democratic Senate debate this spring, Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman was asked if he supported any limits on abortion, to which he replied, “I don’t believe so, no.”
New York City Mayor Eric Adams also falls into this category of abortion support—an extremist view even CNN didn’t attempt to downplay.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
