Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) criticized her fellow Republicans on NBC’s Meet the press on Sunday morning for aggressively raising strict abortion restrictions in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn it Roe v. Wade earlier this summer.
“Handmaid’s Tale shouldn’t have been a road map,” she told NBC host Chuck Todd.
And she warned of the potential for the Conservative party’s serious overshoot to explode in the face of the GOP in November — sparking a wave of otherwise lukewarm voters to vote Democrat. Her comments, of course, come on the heels of Tuesday’s stunning unrest in Kansas, where a startling display from voters blocked the state’s attempt to roll back abortion rights.
“I’m a staunch pro-life,” Mace began with a warning. “It will be a problem in November if we don’t moderate ourselves.”
“We can’t go to the farthest corners of the right or the farthest corners of the left,” she said. “Somewhere in the middle is where we should meet.”
In the TV news program, Mace stressed the need to make exceptions for women who have been sexually assaulted, noting a traumatic personal experience she first publicly revealed three years ago: that she was raped when she was 16 years old. was old. And the lone South Carolina congresswoman also put her own state on edge.
“In my state of South Carolina, there is legislation that would prohibit the word ‘abortion’ on any website or website server. There are people who want to ban women from traveling out of the state, there are people like my state who want to ban abortion for women who are victims of rape and girls who are victims of incest,” she lamented.
“The vast majority of people here are okay with some crash barriers, but they don’t want the ends from either side,” she said.
