Likely Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said Thursday that pro-lifers are ascendant on the abortion issue and urged them to take their case to voters next year, The Hill reported.

Recent polling data from Gallup indicates growing dissatisfaction with abortion law, much of it coming from Americans supporting greater restrictions on the procedure.

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO, who said this week that she is 90 percent certain to run in 2016, said it is important that abortion critics "engage in persuasive conversations, conducted in an empathetic and reasonable tone."

"We are winning on this issue and so we have to keep going," Fiorina said at a gala hosted by the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life group.

The event which was attended by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other lawmakers also paid tribute to Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst, who received extensive support from the right-to-life movement in her race last year.

Fiorina said she has repeatedly been confronted by people who attack the Republican Party on abortion but have no idea how extreme Democrats' abortion orthodoxy has become on the issue.

At a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor on Thursday, Fiorina blasted Democrats for supporting a platform she described as "any abortion, any time, at any point in a woman's pregnancy for any reason to be paid for by taxpayers and now, some would like to add, to be performed by a non-doctor."

The policy, Fiorina said, was "succinctly summarized by [California Democratic Sen.] Barbara Boxer as: 'It's not a life until it leaves the hospital.'"

"How do you feel about this? Women are horrified by that," Fiorina said, referring to the veteran Democratic incumbent she ran unsuccessfully against in 2010.

Boxer recently announced she will not seek re-election next year.
