NC Poll: 69 Percent of Tarheel GOP Voters Aged 18 to 49 Support 20-Week Abortion Ban

by Neil McCabe, Townhall.com

Less than two weeks after Rep. Renee Ellmers (R.-N.C.) sabotaged the expected passage of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, 69 percent of North Carolina Republicans aged 18 to 49 support the ban on abortions after 20-weeks asked directly without conditions or nuance in a Townhall/Gravis poll of 782 randomly selected registered GOP voters.

Sixty percent of Republicans aged 50 to 64 support the ban, as do 55 percent of GOP voters older than 65, said Doug Kaplan, the managing partner of Gravis Insights, the Florida-based pollster the executed the poll. The Jan. 31 poll carries a margin of error of 3.5 percent.he said.

Ellmers, the chairwoman of the Republican Women's Policy Committee, signed up as a co-sponsor of , H.R. 36, Jan. 9, but on the Jan. 20 anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision the congresswoman withdrew her name as a co-sponsor. In 2013, Ellmers voted for the same bill.

Kaplan said 58 percent of all Republican voters, who were asked: "Would you support a federal outlawing abortions after 20 weeks or pregnancy?" said they supported the ban and 27 percent said they were opposed.

Broken down by ethnic communities, 58 percent respondents identifying themselves as Hispanic supported the straight-out 20-week ban, 67 percent of those identifying themselves as Asian, he said...

In a Jan. 21 Facebook post, the congresswoman said: "To clear up any misinformation, I will be voting tomorrow to support H.R. 36 - The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protect Act Resources bill. I have and will continue to be a strong defender of the prolife community."

The post not only distorted her moves against the bill, but also shifted her support from the unborn to the people fighting for the unborn--in effect announcing that she was not longer of the pro-life movement, but was now a sympathetic outsider.

Consistent with her new outsider posture, Ellmers dug in her high heels with a Jan. 30 post on her official blog, when she dressed down the advocates for the unborn: "I am appalled by the abhorrent and childish behaviors from some of the leaders of the outside groups."

Furthermore in the post, the congresswoman described herself as both "Pro-life and Compassionate," as if she was balancing two competing ideals, rather than two unified goals.

The registered nurse told National Journal her opposition to the bill was rooted in her concern that young Americans supported abortion rights and that fighting to protect the unborn was bad for the image of the Republican Party.

In addition to pulling her name as a co-sponsor, Ellmers worked with the House Republican leadership on ways to delay the vote of the pain-capable bill or otherwise weaken its provision that would have encouraged women to report their rapist to law enforcement.

The talks between House GOP leadership and Ellmers, who is married to surgeon Brent R. Ellmers, struck at the heart of the rebooted pro-life movement tactics. On one track, the pro-life movement is focusing the current system as the willing partner of men abusing underage females. The other track, sets asides arguments about the humanity or viability of unborn children, and instead deals with the pain inflicted on the unborn.

In the end, the bill was pulled from the House calendar by leadership--just as hundreds of thousands of advocates for the unborn were mustering for the annual March for Life....
