.- For the first time in years, the Democratic National Committee is not excluding pro-life democrats from the national convention.

Democrats For Life of America applauded Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe in a letter yesterday for his pledge to not prevent pro-life speakers from addressing the DNC convention.

“Chairman McAuliffe’s statement proves that the Democratic Party is truly the party of inclusion.  Despite our differences on the issue of protecting the rights of the unborn, the fact that McAuliffe is not going to exclude pro-life speakers from addressing the Convention in Boston is encouraging,” said Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats for Life of America.

Democrats For Life of America was founded in 1999 to mobilize Democrats at the local, state, and national levels, and has 32 state chapters.  Their primary mission has been to elect pro-life Democrats, support pro-life elected officials, promote a pro-life plank in the Democratic Party platform and achieve legislation that fosters respect for human life.
