Catholic theologian Charles Camosy has resigned from the board of Democrats for Life of America (DFLA), writing in an op-ed on Thursday that the Democratic Party's extreme support of abortion left him "no choice" but to leave his party.
"Anything even hinting that abortion is less than good now violates party orthodoxy," Camosy wrote in a Feb. 6 column in the NY Post.
Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg's refusal to limit abortion at any point in pregnancy was, for Camosy, "[t]he straw that broke this camel's back."
"If the [Democratic] party was willing to go all-in on the most volatile issue of our time with a position held by only 13 percent of the population, it was time to take no for an answer," Camosy wrote.
According to a 2018 Gallup poll, only 13% of Americans believe abortion should "generally be legal" in the last three months of pregnancy.
