Dems ignoring pro-life will likely cost them

I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)Against seemingly impossible headwinds, pro-life Democrats are trying to convince their party to make room for them.

Democrats for Life Executive Director Kristen Day understands that every candidate vying for the Democrat presidential nomination is wildly out of touch with South Carolina voters.

“When you look in South Carolina, only 13% of South Carolina voters support no restrictions on abortion, and that's where … all the current candidates stand,” Day pointed out. “They support abortion through nine months with no restrictions.”

The South Carolina Democratic primary is Saturday, so Day and her pro-life group are on the ground in Charleston trying to talk some morality into at least one Democratic candidate.

“If somebody was running as a pro-life Democrat right now, they would be in the lead,” the pro-life activist assured. “The abortion-rights vote would be split between all these candidates, and there would be only one person with a consistent pro-life for the whole life view.”

During a Tuesday morning rally at the Hilton Garden Inn, Day attempted to speak to a demographic the Democrats have taken for granted for years.

“We have a few African-American voters coming in to discuss abortion in the black community, and how the Democratic Party relies on the African-American voters when it comes to the elections, but [the party] ignore[s] them when it comes to the issue of life,” Day shared.

If no Democratic candidates wise up to the pro-life issue between now and November, things will continue to look dismal for the struggling party because it is out-of-touch with America.

“When it comes to the general election – like it did in 2016 – a lot of the pro-life Democrats will stay home because they don't want to vote for Trump, but they also won't vote for a candidate who supports abortion up to nine months,” Day maintained.
