…Two years ago, abortion was legal in every state, but a majority of Americans identified as pro-life. Today, the Roe regime has been overturned, and 21 states have passed protections for the unborn, but support for abortion has returned to record highs. Meanwhile, the pro-life side has lost seven out of seven state ballot initiatives—a perfect record of failure….

That’s the bad news. The good news is that we have a winning strategy at hand. As pro-life citizens, civil society leaders, and policymakers, we should consider three distinct, but related steps to reverse course.

The first step is to develop and loudly promote a compassionate, pro-family agenda…. My Providing for Life Act offers an example of how to support pregnant women and their children. It includes a host of pro-family, pro-life reforms, from an expansion of the child tax credit to guaranteed paid parental leave to enhanced child-support enforcement….

The second step toward changing the tide is to hold Democrats to the fire for their extremism…. We should use every tool at our disposal so Democrats are forced to answer the question, “What restrictions do you support on abortion?” in the Capitol and back home in districts and states. If Democrats are forced to talk honestly, they will lose.

Finally, as people who call ourselves pro-life, we must recall that protecting human beings is the center and purpose of our movement…. It’s no secret that Americans have different views on whether and how to limit abortion…. We have to navigate tough terrain with sympathy. But we should never abandon our moral mission….

Our party believes in the dignity of the human person, the importance of family, and the unalienable right to life. There is no cause that unites those beliefs more perfectly and motivates our party’s supporters more earnestly than the pro-life cause. We have a sacred duty to advocate for it effectively.
