Republican Rep. Bucks Party on Abortion

Republican Representative Nancy Mace of South Carolina lambasted her fellow party members for their stance on abortion.

Speaking to ABC’s “This Week”, Mace said, “As Republicans, we need to read the room on this issue because the vast majority of folks are not in the extremes.”

“We’re going to lose huge if we continue down this path of extremities.”

Mace is considered a moderate Republican who has taken issue with the party’s abortion policies since Roe v. Wade was overturned last year by the Supreme Court.

Over the weekend, she called out various state-level restrictions, including a dig at presumptive presidential candidate Ron DeSantis, who she described as signing a six-week abortion ban “in the dead of night.”

She also blasted a bill in her home state of South Carolina that would have allowed the death penalty against women who obtain abortions, saying it gives “more rights to rapists than the women who have been raped.”

“That is the wrong message heading into ’24,” Mace said.

“And finding that middle ground, the vast majority of people want some sort of gestational limits, not at nine months, but somewhere in the middle. They want exceptions for rape and incest. They want women to have access to birth control.”

Mace lauded the Supreme Court’s decision to allow mifepristone, also referred to as “the abortion pill”, to remain available while its FDA approval is appealed in federal court.

Other Republicans have publicly questioned the pill’s status, which was approved in 2000.

“Sending the abortion drug through the mail is a big change in how it is provided. In 2000, when it was first approved, you had to have four visits to the doctor. In 2021, The Biden administration said you don’t have to even consult a physician anymore and send it through the mail,” Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”


  1. According to Mace murdering babies is OK in certain circumstances or at certain stages of development. Sickening to think she identifies as a Republican.

    • Go to medical school, complete an OBG residency and practice thay specialty for 10-20 years and then you’ll be qualified to have that opinion. Fact is, some pregnancies need to be terminated and that’s true even when a woman WANTS to have a baby. Doctors shouldn’t have to wait until it’s a life-or-death decision or be unable to do a simple first-ttimester abortion which prevents a third-trimester cesarean to get a dead baby. There are lots of situations besides the ones you imagine.

  2. South Carolina is so left only RINO GOP members can survive, ask the DNC who are making SC their home

  3. People who support abortion ARE in the extreme, when it comes to the dignity of human life and the Constitution. Unfortunately, these people have been conditioned to not question the status quo and comply. The prime evil of indoctrination is the abortion issue; next is euthanasia. Once you give up respect for the lives of the most vulnerable, you have become evil. We live in a society where information is readily available that these issues are black and white. God so ordered them.

  4. She’s 100% right. Things have gotten to be totally idiotic. If Johnny Cash sang his “Boy Named Sue” song today the extremist GOP Christian Nationalists would want to have him jailed or worse.
