Message Memo

A New Direction on Abortion for Progressives

Winning the Battle of Reasonableness

Author: Rachel Laser and Michael Earls
In The Culture Program


A new message and strategy for progressives on abortion. This memo, which is tied in part to the introduction of new abortion-related legislation, shows how abortion reduction appeals to the vast majority of the electorate who would like to see fewer abortions in America and seek common ground in this divisive debate.


As this memo explains, progressives’ position on abortion should be tied to reducing the number of abortions while protecting personal liberties. By contrast, the conservatives’ goal is to reduce abortions by putting people in jail. In new polling revealed first in this memorandum, Americans – and particularly the Abortion Grays (moderates on the issue) – overwhelmingly support both components of the recommended message.
