Man, one thing you can depend on Republicans for is that if you give them a shovel, they will just keep on digging.  Last week the Alabama Supreme Court did Republicans the favor (not!) of putting in vitro fertilization on the ballot for 2024. Two years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court did their Republican handlers the favor (not!) of putting abortion on the ballot by overturning of Roe v Wade Now Democrats will be able to use access to contraception as another issue to pound Republicans with, given the results of a new poll that shows how hugely unpopular Republican opposition to contraception is.

Republicans have been suffering on the issue of abortion already, losing several special elections to Democrats pushing the issue.  It’s a no-brainer.  Democrats have turned the Supreme Court decision on Roe to their advantage every chance they’ve gotten.  And why not?  According to Pew Research Center, 61 percent of Americans say abortion should be legal in most cases.  With restrictions on abortion on the ballot in states both red and blue across the nation, emphasizing a woman’s right to control her own body has been a winner every time Democrats have pushed it.
