Rep. Nancy Mace: Abortion ‘Is a Top Issue for Swing Voters,’ ‘It’s the Reason We Didn’t Get More of a Majority’

‘The vast majority of people in my district don’t like what happened after Roe was overturned’

MACE: "Well, it's the reason we didn't get more of a majority. We should have had a dozen or two-dozen-seat majority this legislative session, but we don't because this is one of the issues that was top of mind for swing voters. And when you're looking ahead to '24, whether it's keeping the majority or trying to win the White House, going to the extremes and digging in there isn't going to work for most people. And so, when I look at every issue, not just on Roe v. Wade but every issue, we're so divided. It's refreshing to hear Sen. Joe Manchin, who I sometimes joke he’s the most popular Republican in the Senate right now, but to hear him talk about these issues in a very refreshing, balanced way is the way both sides of the aisle need to approach every issue, including abortion. And I'm here, waving my hand, being a very vocal person on this and saying, 'I'm pro-life, but I'm willing to sit down and talk about how do we balance the rights of women and the right to life.' At some point, that infant has the right to life. And women's rights are equally important, so let's have that conversation. Let's have it in the open. Let's find a way to move together because having a divided Congress means we're supposed to be working together, but both sides are afraid of their primaries. That's not the way we should be operating, but that’s the way the majority of people in Congress, they vote and legislate out of fear."
