Over the last several election cycles, the evidence has become undeniable that the Democratic Party’s rigid pro-abortion orthodoxy is costing it at the ballot box, making a “50-state strategy” essentially impossible. A remarkable meeting on Tuesday between DNC Chair Tom Perez and Democrats for Life suggests the party may be ready to rethink its approach, at least in terms of tolerance for pro-life voices.
The Democratic party has found itself in a bit of hot water over recent comments made by the DNC chair, Tom Perez, about how open the party was to its pro-life members. House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, says the party is open to pro-life membership and always has been.
Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York clapped back at recent statements by DNC chair Tom Perez affirming that there was no place in the party for pro-life candidates. The cardinal described the comments as “disturbing” and “intolerant.”
Pro-life Democrats were dismayed when the DNC chair Tom Perez said that there was no room in the party for pro-life politicians. The executive director of Democrats for Life of America expressed concern for “this non-negotiable position.”
