Hogue has previously claimed pro-lifers trying to support human life in the womb are “upholding white supremacy” and rooting for “white patriarchal control.” Her group also rabidly opposed the nominations of President Donald J. Trump’s judicial appointments, most notably that of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In an interview with the New York Times, Hogue said she “has every indication” that pro-abortion Democrats in Congress were going to “move forward legislation” that codifies the 1973 abortion-on-demand Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, on the federal books.

In the New York Times piece, the publication admitted that most Americans believe there should at least be some restrictions on abortion.
“Polls show that mainstream views on abortion are more moderate than those of the activists on either side, with most Americans now saying that abortions should be legal with some restrictions.)”
What are your thoughts on Hogue’s decision to leave the pro-abortion group?
