In an interview with RealClearPolitics, former VP Mike Pence that stripping away a women's right to choose regarding her own health and body is more important than winning the Midterm elections.

Somebody might want to tell that to Republican Senate candidates because Mike Pence is definitely not interested in helping them.

“I welcome any and all efforts to advance the cause of life in state capitals or in the nation’s capital,” Pence told RCP when asked about legislation to institute a federal abortion ban. “And I have every confidence that the next Republican president, whoever that may be, will stand for the right to life.”

"It is imperative that Republicans and conservatives resolve, here and now, that we will not shrink from the fight,” he added. For their part, Republican leadership would rather not. At least, not right now.

Pence had spoken earlier at a gathering of the Susan B Anthony anti-choice group and told them that overturning Roe V Wade was “the end of the beginning.”

In other words, you ain't seen nothing, folks.

In the GOP, the Senate Republicans seem to be split after Lindsey Graham introduced his national abortion ban bill.

Rolling Stone rightly points out, "Republican lawmakers have been disingenuously framing abortion as a “states rights” issue in order to mitigate the backlash to the Supreme Court overturning of Roe v. Wade, but the effort to implement a federal abortion ban has been in the works since far before the Dobbs decision in June."

It's nothing new when Republicans take one position to the public and then flip. The beltway media then inhales it, hook, line and sinker, as a "practical compromise" that makes their position seem more palatable.

Then when Republicans get what they want, they expose their true and much more extreme agenda.

What's happening to the abortion "debate" on the Right is horrifying.
