Pro-life Democrats in New York are standing up against radical abortion legislation from Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo but they're shocked...shocked I say to discover that the Democrat Party is pro-abortion.
Democrats for Life also voiced strong objections to New York senator Jeff Klein's suggestion that in order to be a true Democrat, one must support the abortion expansion.This is the same pro-life Democrats that held a forum shortly before the election with speakers who said that Barack Obama was the real pro-life candidate because the policies of the Democratic Party would decrease abortion rates.
“It is clear that Senator Klein does not fully understand the importance of diversity within our party, the strength of a big tent policy, or the real needs of women,” the organization said, noting that “there are 21 million Democrats who self-identify as pro-life.”
Think about it. Pro-life Dems. Who are we talking about here? Guys like Bart Stupak and Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey. Not exactly leading lights of protecting life.
Look, I can understand how one might be a big government pro-lifers. But I don't see how anyone can call themselves a pro-life Democrat.
