With Democrats claiming the 2022 midterm elections will see a tidal wave of suburban women rushing to the polls to defend abortion in key swing states, Reuters conducted a focus group of women in suburban Phoenix to hear directly from them.

Democrats are not happy with what Reuters founds.

The media outlet sat down with 21 women in the suburbs of north Phoenix, where suburban women voters swung the state’s elections to Democrats like President Joe Biden and U.S. Senator Mark Kelly.  Democrat strategists specifically cited Phoenix as an area where voters were most likely to get out to vote to defend abortion.


Yet Reuters found only two of the 21 women said overturning Roe v. Wade would motivate them to vote.  

Even half of the women who identified as pro-choice said they were still undecided whether to support Republicans or Democrats, a devastating finding among a demographic said to be overwhelmingly Democrat.

The women, like women nationwide, are more focused on crippling inflation.

“(Laura) Wilson, 61, is pro-choice, voted for Democratic President Joe Biden, and knew all about the news last week that the U.S. Supreme Court is likely poised to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision giving women the right to an abortion,” Reuters reports. “Yet Wilson said she is undecided about who she will vote for this November, and abortion rights are not a priority for her.”

“Maria Alvarez, 46, a mother and a realtor, said she is pro-choice, but ‘I really don’t have a strong opinion on it,’” Reuters found. “She wants politicians who will take care of pocketbook issues. She had just completed a grocery shop that cost her $400, twice what she used to pay a year ago.”

One of the focus group members says her abortion experience now motivates her to support Republicans.

“Sherica Bailey, 33, got tearful talking about her two abortions. She is now adamantly opposed to abortion and says she will vote Republican and for any candidate who is pro-life,” Reuters reports. “‘I do support the overturn of Roe v. Wade. I had abortions during a very dark time in my life. I was naive and stupid,’ she said.”

The finding sent online Democrats into a rage, who are convinced the rest the country shares their radical beliefs and cannot comprehend differing opinions.

The country is changing and women are beginning to realize their value as a woman, a wife and a mother. I am very happy to see this turnabout regarding abortion with women having values now. Very proud of them.

Women are finally recognizing that Democrats who push abortion (and allowing transgender men to compete against women) don’t SUPPORT women and their children (born OR unborn)…..
