Democrats For Life of America urged the Democratic National Committee to concede its pro-abortion position today on the heels of one of the worst Election Day performances in recent memory.
Democrats For Life says the election results show the DNC is out of touch with the electorate. It also points to a CBS News poll, which indicates that delegates to the DNC convention were twice as likely as Democratic voters to support abortion in all cases.
"The good news is pro-life Democrats are winning campaigns….because they withstand the pressure of the national party and represent the values of their local communities,” said Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats For Life.
For example, West Virginia elected a Democrat as governor despite the fact that President George W. Bush carried the state, she said.
“When Democrats take a stand and protect the rights of the unborn, we win elections. When Democrats campaign on a pro-abortion platform, they lose," she stated.
Democrats For Life of America is a grassroots organization, founded in 1999. It has 32 state chapters and plans to expand to the rest of the country states by the end of the year.
