Democrats can’t stand it when pro-life lawmakers in a given state vote to protect babies from abortions. So, once again, they are asking liberals to boycott the many states that have passed pro-life laws this legislative session to support women and unborn children.
Americans all across the country are sending a message to the U.S. Supreme Court: It’s time to end Roe v. Wade and protect unborn babies from abortion once again. And they are doing so, in part, through the lawmakers whom they have chosen to represent them in their state legislatures. These lawmakers have introduced approximately 500 pro-life bills this year to protect mothers and unborn babies from abortion.
So it’s no shock that the left is upset.
They think they own us. The managerial oligarchy, along with its enablers, advocates, and hangers-on, believes that it has the right to rule the rest of us — government by the wealthy and connected, for the wealthy and connected, and of the wealthy and connected.
If voters and their representatives won’t go along with this, then the oligarchs and their allies will use their wealth and power as weapons to force us.
They aren’t even trying to hide it. For example, New York Times columnist Linda Greenhouse recently lauded corporate CEOs for using the economic clout of the businesses they manage to push states around on election security and LGBT issues.
After praising their previous interference in our democracy, she then begged the “executive class” to impose more economic sanctions on conservative portions of the country, this time targeting states that are trying to restrict abortion.

Federalist writer Nathanael Blake says the boycott is not surprising:
More than any other issue, abortion illuminates how the Democratic Party, and the left in general, have rejected solidarity in favor of materialist individualism. A political movement that supports abortion will never produce genuine solidarity or social justice.
Thus, it is to be expected that the Democrats’ embrace of abortion has been followed by a shift from being the party of the working class to the party of Wall Street. Though women from all classes procure abortions, the justifications for elective abortion are steeped in the sins of the rich: ambition, self-indulgence, the love of money, and indifference to the weak.
In urging oligarchs to intervene against states that restrict the violence of abortion, Greenhouse has done us a favor. It’s not just that this highlights the oligarchic tendencies of the left, which have already been apparent on other issues — it’s that there could be no better evidence of the relationship between abortion and exploitation than a New York Times columnist urging the rich to subvert representative democracy in an effort to protect abortion on demand.
We must prepare to resist such efforts, in order to protect both human life and self-government.
Some state pro-life bills include measures to prohibit dangerous telemedicine abortions, ban abortions after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable or ban abortions that discriminate against unborn babies based on their race, sex or a disability. Still other legislation aims to inform mothers about the life-saving abortion pill reversal protocol and hold abortion facilities accountable to basic health and safety standards.
Mallory Quigley, spokesperson for the Susan B. Anthony List, said these pro-life bills send a strong message to the Supreme Court.
“We know the court is not immune to public opinion,” Quigley told the newspaper. “The more states are advancing these bills, the more it increases the demand for the Supreme Court to weigh in.”
Even the LA Times, whose editors recently argued in favor of abortion on demand without any limits, admitted that Americans have not fallen sway to the radical pro-abortion agenda that constantly is being pushed on them by Democrat leaders and the mainstream media.
“… public opinion on abortion has remained relatively steady for the last two decades,” the newspaper wrote. “Americans are more or less evenly split when asked by Gallup whether they consider themselves ‘pro-choice’ or ‘pro-life.’”
While the newspaper noted that “a consistent majority backs legal abortion in some circumstances,” polls consistently show that most Americans actually support strong limits on abortion – stronger limits than what Roe v. Wade and the Supreme Court currently allow.
A January poll from Gallup found that 51 percent of Americans say abortion should never be permitted, permitted only to save the life of the mother or permitted only in cases of rape or incest or if necessary to save the mother’s life.
A 2019 Hill-HarrisX survey also found that 55 percent of voters said they do not think laws banning abortions after six weeks – when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable – are too restrictive.
The majority of Americans are making their voices heard through their local and state elected officials. A growing movement that began in Texas, 25 cities to date have passed Sanctuary for the Unborn ordinances to outlaw the killing of unborn babies in abortions in their municipalities.
