DNC Chair to Christians: Abandon Pro-life stance or leave our party
Democrat National Committee Chairman Tom Perez stated that all Democrat candidates must support abortion. He further indicated that all democrats should as also abandon pro-choice stances. This was on the wave of angering the snowflakes with the endorsement of Heath Mello by well-known democrats.
Given the support of Democrats traditionally by Catholics, Southern African-American churches, and Jews, who tend to more often lean towards pro-choice then pro-life, this statement was stunning.
This is no surprise to some that recall the DNC convention and crowning of Queen Clinton for the nomination at the 2016 convention. A key note speaker gave an address applauding the murdering of her unborn child due to “timing”. Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America gave her remarks on Wednesday of the convention and stated: “To succeed in life, all we need are the tools, the trust, and the chance to chart our own path," Hogue said during her DNC speech. "I was fortunate enough to have these things when I found out I was pregnant years ago. I wanted a family, but it was the wrong time. I made the decision that was best for me—to have an abortion and get compassionate care at a clinic in my own community."
Murdering of an unborn child through lethal poisoning or dismemberment is often hidden behind terms such as “reproductive health care” or “woman’s choice”. The remarks by Hogue were met with standing ovations and plenty of applause.
Chairman Perez stated at a DNC address earlier this week: “Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health, That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.”
“At a time when women’s rights are under assault from the White House, the Republican Congress, and in states across the country,” he added, “we must speak up for this principle as loudly as ever and with one voice.”
“Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health.”
“Our job at the DNC is to help Democrats who have garnered support from voters in their community cross the finish line and win ― from school board to Senate,” Perez said. “The biggest threat to women’s reproductive rights is the relentless Republican attacks on women’s health care, including legal, accessible abortion services. And I won’t let anyone get in the way of our fight to protect a woman’s right to choose.”
Perez further clarified his statements by stating that he “fundamentally disagree[s] with Heath Mello’s personal beliefs about women’s reproductive health” and that “every candidate who runs as a Democrat should do the same, because every woman should be able to make her own health choices. Period.”
Recent Rasmuessen polls over the past three years have consistently indicated Americans are now more divided than ever along party lines, and not as often by race, gender, or religion as they once were. While abortion may be legal and women in America do have the right and ability to access it, these remarks by the DNC may pressure some pro-choice liberals to finally leave the Democrat party. This is in the wake over President Trump’s plan to remove federal funding to Planned Parenthood now at the center of the current budget debate. A short-term resolution was passed and signed by the president to fund the government for an additional week. Stay tuned as this battle will heat up once again next week.
In a twist of irony, many Republicans who fiercely fight for pro-life initiatives tend to support pro-choice organizations such as the American Cancer Society. On one hand, conservatives insist the government should defund Planned Parenthood due to abortion services provided, but on the other raise thousands of dollars for “Relay for Life”. Those funds go to the American Cancer Society who provides “grants for women’s health programs”.
As a pro-choice Democrat, how do you feel with the “party of abortion”? Would you now consider more candidates that are independent or Republican? Should the democrat party take such a hostile and absolute stance?
