Democratic dhimmitude

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 27, 2008

 The Democratic Party is actively recruiting pro-life candidates, the New York Times informs us. Why, this year there are 12 identifiably pro-life Democrats running for seats in the US Congress. "That is the highest number of anti-abortion candidates the party has fielded in recent memory to run either for open seats or against Republican challengers," the Times notes. Still we should not expect a dramatic leap in the number of pro-life Democratic candidates; you shouldn't expect the figure to soar up to 3% of all the party's Congressional challengers, say. The recruitment of pro-lifers, the Times concedes, "has not been without tensions, given the party's reliance on abortion rights groups for fund-raising and get-out-the-vote efforts." 

To recap: The Democratic party is institutionally pledged to support of unrestricted abortion on demand. The party depends on abortion advocates for funding and campaign work. Nevertheless pro-lifers are always welcome in the party, just as Christians are welcome in Saudi Arabia. To visit.
