Kari Lake's retreat on abortion shows somebody is reading the polls
Opinion: Kari Lake has called abortion 'the ultimate sin,' but she now says she wouldn't vote for a national abortion ban. Sure, that makes sense.

Kari Lake stands unequivocally opposed to abortion.

Except when she’s not.

She has called abortion “the ultimate sin.”

Yet she now says she doesn’t want to outlaw it nationally.

Trying to nail down where Kari Lake stands on abortion? It’s a lot like trying to sneak up on a roadrunner.

They move this way and that as they quickly bolt for cover.

--------------

The New York Times on Saturday observed that Lake is in “tactical retreat” on the issue, with last week’s declaration that she’s opposed to a national abortion ban.
