I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)Democrat leaders appear to be out of touch with their constituencies on the abortion issue.

American Life League's Jim Sedlak has seen the numbers the recently released Gallup poll provides. Included is a section called "Attitudes Towards Abortion Democrats vs Republicans," which has the stats concerning where people land on whether abortion should be legal in all circumstances.

"In 2017 to 2020, 43 percent of Democrats say that abortion should be legal," Sedlak relays. "Only 14 percent of Republicans say abortions should be legal under any circumstances, which clearly shows a major difference between the party of life and the party of death."

He sees a wide dichotomy between what the people believe and what the party leaders believe.

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)"Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and all of those people -- they're up there saying abortion under any circumstances for any reason at any time right up to birth, and some of them are even talking after birth," the pro-lifer laments. "But that's not what their supporters are saying. Even their most liberal supporters, the number is less than 50 percent that think that it should be legal any time."

The Gallup poll also indicates that only 32 percent of Black Americans support abortion under all circumstances. Sedlak suspects the pro-life-leaning numbers might even be stronger if the media would be fair, but they usually report the pro-abortion side while ignoring the issue from a pro-life perspective.

Part of Biden's presidential campaign includes taxpayers footing the bill for abortion.
