Pro-abortion Democrats try to do away with the few pro-life politicians left of their social gathering.
Texas Congressman Henry Cuellar is the most recent to have a goal pinned on his again. According to the Washington Post, the group Justice Democrats not too long ago introduced plans to recruit a left-wing challenger for him within the 2020 major. This is similar group that helped pro-abortion Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez win a seat in New York.
Cuellar is a seven-term consultant with a reasonably pro-life document. His latest votes embrace supporting a invoice to prohibit abortions after 20 weeks on pain-capable unborn infants and the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
These votes don’t jive with an more and more pro-abortion Democratic Party. The social gathering has a radical stance on abortion that’s out of contact with most Americans. In 2016, the Democratic National Committee permitted a platform calling for full help of abortion for any motive up to delivery and taxpayer funding of abortions — regardless of polling exhibiting robust public opposition to each.
Just a handful of pro-life politicians are left in Washington now.
Here’s extra from the report:
In an announcement, the group in contrast Texas’s 28th Congressional District, which gave the president simply 38.5 % of the vote in 2016, to different districts the place left-leaning candidates have unseated incumbents. It is launching a “primary Cuellar fund” to encourage any potential candidate that there might be sources if she or he jumps into the race.
“There’s an Ocasio-Cortez and [Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna] Pressley in blue districts across America, tired of seeing long-standing incumbents serve corporate interests, work with Trump’s agenda, and works against the progressive movement,” stated Alexandra Rojas, the manager director of Justice Democrats. “These grass-roots leaders just need a little bit of encouragement and support.”

Cuellar’s workplace didn’t reply to a query from The Washington Post, however he has lengthy been seen as a goal for the social gathering’s left wing as it really works to construct its bench. Last 12 months, after a left-wing major challenger to Rep. Daniel Lipinski (D-Ill.) was narrowly defeated, Cuellar informed The Post that he would maintain his seat in any major.
“They came after me twice, and I beat ’em,” Cuellar stated. “LBJ used to say: What’s the difference between a cannibal and a liberal Democrat? Cannibals don’t eat their own.”
Democrat Party leaders have been sending a message that pro-lifers are usually not welcome, despite the fact that
Democrats for Life estimates greater than 23 million Democrats within the U.S. are pro-life. Pew Research discovered that 28 % of Democrats say abortion ought to be unlawful in most or all circumstances. Marist/KofC polling additionally discovered that 23 % of Democrats contemplate themselves pro-life and 40 % say abortion is morally fallacious.
In August, abortion activists even pressured the Missouri Democratic Party to reject a platform modification that welcomed a “diversity of views on abortion.”
Many have left the Democratic Party as a result of it has stopped supporting pro-life legal guidelines and advocates for all times. Last 12 months, a Massachusetts mayor even publicly introduced his choice to depart, disgusted by the social gathering’s demand that unborn infants be sacrificed and their deaths celebrated.
