Alyssa Farah Griffin told her co-hosts on ABC’s “The View” on Tuesday, that the GOP needs to “wake up” and acknowledge that voting trends in conservative states, post the overturning of Roe v. Wade, indicate that Republican women want access to abortion.
“I think someone used an important term dogma,” Griffin said.
“There is a dogmaticness that exists on the right. I’m somebody who I’m personally pro-life but come to a place where I’m open to some access and some limitations, but policy-making, I’ve learned this is not always black and white.
“My party for so many years, it’s easy to talk about pro-life when it’s a slogan and we say it because Roe is the law of the land and people can get abortions when they want to,” she continued.
“We’re realizing the public sentiment isn’t where we thought.
“Deep red Kansas, Ohio Republican women said, we want some access to abortion, and I think we have to wake up that there is a place where people of good conscience can meet on this issue that will never have women in a situation where they’re demonized and denied medically recommended care from their doctor,” she stated.
“If you are going to be pro-life you need to be pro-life through the life of the baby, access to paid parental leave, you need access to foster care, contraceptives,” Griffin added.
