How overturning Roe v. Wade could backfire for Republicans

ATLANTA — For months, Republicans have been poised to make inroads in the diverse and economically comfortable suburbs of cities like Atlanta. The moderate communities here swung toward Democrats in recent years, led by women appalled by Donald Trump. But lately, rampant inflation and rising crime have taken a political toll on President Biden and his party.

Sandra Sloan, 82, is the kind of voter Republicans are counting on to help them reclaim this contested section of a newly purple state. Yet Sloan, a retired high school teacher who lives in Atlanta’s upscale Buckhead neighborhood, is uneasy about the party for one main reason.

“I am a Republican, but I still believe that it’s a woman’s right to choose,” Sloan said.


It is voters like Sloan, in communities like Buckhead, who may represent the greatest challenge for Republicans in a renewed national debate over the rights of women to legally terminate a pregnancy.

1. I was eating my lunch today in my school's lunchroom and a teacher brought up abortion bans

And said she is appalled women could lose this right. She was in her 30’s and said all her friends are so now angry and are looking into registering to vote. She said she hasn’t been too political but she is going to vote against all republicans in November.
