What's happening: Democratic candidates in this year's midterm elections do not support any limits on abortion.
• U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman and others have said so explicitly, while many have refused to give direct answers when asked.
• Democrats can't run on low prices and a strong economy. They are trying to inspire their base by stoking outrage at the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The party and its activist allies are flooding states and districts with ads accusing Republicans of wanting to throw women and their doctors in prison.
Why it matters: This is an extreme position.
