Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway hopes to challenge pro-life Gov. Mike Parson in November.
But Galloway, a pro-abortion Democrat, is courting the support of a radical pro-abortion group with views far too extreme for most voters.
The Washington Free Beacon reports the pro-abortion lobbying group NARAL plans to host a “virtual brunch” Sunday featuring Galloway as the special guest. The event advertises a complimentary cocktail delivered to each attendee.
Galloway is scheduled to speak, along with Planned Parenthood of St. Louis chief medical officer Colleen McNicholas. Last year, McNicholas told the AP that “EVERY reason to have an abortion is a valid reason,” including for sex-selection and disabilities like Down syndrome.
NARAL is just as extreme. It wants to force taxpayers to fund abortions and opposes any limits on late-term abortions, and it supports Galloway.
The pro-abortion group endorsed her this week. NARAL said Galloway is “committed to ensuring every body can make their own decisions about if, when, & how to start/grow a family, free from political interference. We’re proud to endorse her for Governor of Missouri.”
The Missouri primary election is in August, and Galloway is expected to win the Democratic nomination. Her chances of beating pro-life Gov. Parson, however, appear much less likely.
According to the Beacon, a 2019 poll by Susan B. Anthony List found that 82% of Missouri voters oppose late-term abortions, including 66% of Democrats and 83% of independents.
“It is no surprise NARAL endorsed Galloway, an abortion extremist. If elected, she would promote their radical agenda of abortion on demand, paid for by Missouri taxpayers,” said Mallory Quigley, vice president of SBA List.
Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats for Life of America, echoed these concerns.
“We are disturbed that Nicole Galloway is headlining an event for NARAL, an organization whose mission is to violate human rights. If she makes abortion a focus of her campaign, she’ll lose,” Day told the Beacon.

She urged Galloway to embrace the pro-life position and pointed to the success of pro-life Democrat John Bel Edwards, the governor of Louisiana. Right now, another pro-life Democrat also is leading in the polls in a liberal New York stronghold – much to the shock of liberal news outlets and party leaders.
Many Democrat candidates have become “bold” in their abortion advocacy – too bold for the American people. Their positions on abortion are radical and out of touch with most voters. They support abortions for any reason up to birth and want to force taxpayers to fund them. Polls consistently show strong public opposition to both.
According to a national poll by Marist University in 2019, three in four Americans (75 percent) say abortion should be limited to – at most – the first three months of pregnancy. This includes most Republicans (92 percent), Independents (78 percent) and Democrats (60 percent). Recent Gallup polling also found that 53 percent of Americans oppose all or most abortions.
A Politico/Harvard University poll in 2016 found that just 36 percent of likely voters supported taxpayer funding for abortions, while 58 percent opposed it.
In recent years, the Democratic Party has shifted to align itself closely with the abortion industry, which contributes tens of millions of dollars to Democratic candidates annually.
