Abortion rights have been the topic of conversation for quite some time now, and with the new election in 2020, candidates should prepare to debate as lawsuits are being filed. According to Fox News, six Democratic candidates were at the Supreme Court alongside demonstrators in order to protest the new abortion restrictions that have been passed by Republican legislators in Georgia, Missouri, and Alabama.

Fox News reported that Missouri’s governor Mike Parson signed a bill that banned abortions after eight weeks. Alabama recently passed an outlawing abortion ban which entails women are banned from abortion, these also containing pregnancies from rape and incest unless the woman’s life is in danger. Georgia has also made a firm stance, when it also decided to make abortion illegal after a fetal heartbeat is detected, calling it the “Fetal Heartbeat Law,” along with banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.

Lynda Tran, a veteran Democratic consultant stated the following, “More than anything, I think what you’re seeing from both the presidential candidates and the broader Democratic elected and the progressive activist universe is a visceral response to blatant attacks on a woman’s reproductive right. For so many women—and men—across the country, this isn’t politics as much as it is personal.” Tran also stated that “Republicans seem to be banking on these laws and this fight for helping turn out their base in 2020.”  She also added what the impact will be like for Democrats, “what it will also likely do is enable Democrats who won huge victories in 2018 thanks to women voters, in key districts nationally to drive up what is already heightened voter enthusiasm among progressives even higher.”

Each of the Democratic candidates of 2020 supports abortion rights and continue to criticize banned abortion state laws, by each offering different amount of intelligence towards the topic. The presidential women candidates include Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Kamala Harris, and Kristen Gillibrand. The men candidates include Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Tim Ryan, Eric Swalwell, and Seth Moulton, who all see abortion as a very important topic, yet Fox News reports that Republican National Committee thinks the issue of abortion is distracting Democrats from completing their work.

The RNC press secretary Blair Ellis stated, “While Democrats continue to expose extreme positions on abortion they neglect the real and substantive work they promised the American people.” The ongoing abortion issue between America’s most popular parties continue to be a cause for heated debate amongst its members, therefore it comes as no surprise that the topic of abortion is on the Democrat candidate minds.

Lauren Caren, a veteran GOP consultant doesn’t think abortion will have a huge impact on the election in 2020.“The issue of abortion rights is a hot issue for a small portion of either party.” Caren’s views are debatable to each party, as one may argue that if it was such a minimal issue, then there wouldn’t be a media frenzy over the new Georgia, Missouri, and Alabama abortion laws.

Abortion rights seems to be an everlasting topic, as it can be seen as more than just merely a political debate, as it entails a fine line between human rights and one’s own autonomy. It remains a growing concern for many Americans, and it will be interesting to see how each party and its candidates will go about their individual stance on the topic of abortion in the 2020 election.
