CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): That’s right there bigger than some sort of heated moment where DeSantis gets brought up with Kristen Welker. Forget that. That's – that's like a bar fight. This is, right there, straight communication of Imago Dei. And then he also did it. He enacted it.

Here's something that we as pro-life activists, though, are not honest about. Well, I am, and I get criticized for this. If the 2024 election is a referendum on abortion, we will lose.

If it is just about abortion, we will lose. America is not as pro-life as I am. I know this. I know this from talking to moderate suburban Republicans. They say, Charlie, I'm with you on every issue, except the abortion issue.

Here's some data though. When abortion has recently been on the ballot in Ohio, in Kentucky, and many other states, Kansas, the pro-abortion side wins.

And that doesn't mean it's not an important issue. For me, it's one of my top issues, and it remains that way. But excuse me when I don't get into the outrage cycle by certain commentators when a friend of mine, President Donald Trump, who did more for the unborn, is trying to strike a deal. He already proved he's been pro-life, extremely pro-life.
