Pro-life democrats plan to introduce legislation aimed at radically decreasing abortions

.- Last week in the nation’s capital, Democrats for Life of America (DFLA) announced legislation they plan to introduce which they say could reduce the number of abortions in America by 95 percent over the next 10 years. The proposal, which the group calls the “95-10 initiative”, is “a comprehensive proposal of 15 different policy programs that, when fully funded and implemented in coordination with each other” will tackle many of the issues facing pregnant mothers.

Kristen Day, Executive Director of DFLA said that, “The 95-10 Initiative is our number one priority. While many talk about protecting life, we’re proposing a legitimate policy initiative that will actually reduce the number of abortions in America.”

She added that, “The 95-10 Initiative has been met favorably by both pro-life and pro-choice advocates and elected officials.”

Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) commented Thursday that, “The plan outlined today is a good first step to successfully reduce the rate of abortion by offering alternatives that promote family, promote adoption, and provide education and support for new mothers. I commend Democrats for Life of America for their efforts to bring this issue to the forefront of the agenda and for putting the care and support for newborns and new mothers above all else.”

Kurt Entsminger, President of CareNet said that the new proposal “embraces the women facing an unplanned pregnancy and offers her support and critical information about positive alternatives to abortion. Pregnancy resource centers are at the forefront of these efforts, and are the key players to help reach the goal of making abortion rare.”

The proposal, introduced at the Democratic National Committee Thursday comes after months of planning and research by its supporters.

Our party”, said former congressman and 9-11 commissioner Tim Roemer, “has made more progress on this issue in the last three months than we have in the last 10 years. Ours can be the party that reduces the number of abortions in this country.”
