[Baltimore Sun] Abortion may not hurt Hogan but his ties to GOP might | READER COMMENTARY

Read Time:55 Second

Your article about the failure of the abortion issue to hurt Larry Hogan’s run for governor is correct (“Democrats failed in using abortion against Larry Hogan in last decade. Will it work in 2024?” Feb. 23).

However, people knew that, as governor, Hogan would not be able to change Maryland’s position on the matter of a woman’s right to control her reproductive self. However, as your article indicates, he did interfere with efforts to broaden protections. And, as a Republican U.S. Senator, Hogan would be able to impact reproductive rights and would be subject to Republican Party pressure to hew the line.

As we have seen, Republican officeholders in Washington, D.C., seldom stand up to the Donald Trump party.  And, unfortunately, your article does not mention that by adding to the number of Republicans in Congress, Hogan’s election would shore up the Republican Party’s isolationism, erosion of voting rights and increasing benefits to the wealthy.
