Pro-lifers on board with outcast Democrat

Pro-lifer with hatPro-life organizations are watching a Tuesday congressional election and calling on strong support for one of the candidates.

Illinois Congressman Dan Lipinski, a Democrat, may seem a bit out of sync with his party, which rabidly supports abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Since taking office in January 2005 he has been a pro-life warrior in Congress – and that may be why the Democratic Party has turned its back on him.

Jill Stanek, national campaign chair for the Susan B. Anthony List, cites part of Lipinski's record.

"The pro-life issue is a core issue for him," Stanek tells OneNewsNow. "He does not hide his pro-life beliefs. He fought for the Hyde Amendment in the healthcare fight, and has been a sponsor of the Pain Capable and the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, the Born-Alive Infant Survivors Protection Act, and the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act."

Lipinski also serves as co-chair of the Bipartisan Congressional Pro-Life Caucus.

Volunteers have been knocking on doors in the southwest Chicago district urging support for Lipinski.

"We have to do everything we can to try and promote a bipartisan pro-life Congress," she says. "So pro-life groups, particularly Susan B. Anthony List, are doing everything we can to try and help Congressman Lipinski.

"The election is Tuesday, so the group is encouraging pro-life residents in the district to show up at the polls."

Lipinski's Democratic opponent is Marie Newman, who supports taxpayer funding for abortion and opposes placing any restrictions on abortion procedures. National Review reports her campaign "has been fueled primarily" by Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America.
