Pro-Life Dems Shocked They're Democrats

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.

CNA reports:

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.

“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.”
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.

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.

I have said it before and I'll say it again: pro-life Democrats, like Cajun werewolves, are generally only found in Louisiana. And even there they are usually invisible.

While they may not be as true "pro-life" as they could be, I'm for ANY effort to slow down pro-abortion legislation, and if it causes debate about abortion amongst the Democratic party, so much the better!

I can think of only one truly solid pro-life Democrat, and that is Rebecca Hamilton:

But she is a representative at the state level, and I wouldn't be too surprised to find a few other pro-life Democrats in various state legislatures. Finding pro-life Democrats at the federal level is a much bigger challenge.

In other news: Some Democrats are surprised to discover that the sky is actually blue.

"I never looked up before," said Jane Doe of Oblivious, NY. "I guess I haven't thought about it before today."
