A PRIEST WELCOMES PRO-LIFE DEMOCRATS
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez created some ripples in his party’s solidarity when he insisted that being a pro-choice Democrat “is nonnegotiable” — a rigid proclamation that caused even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to take notice, and not in a good way.
Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, sees an opportunity, however. He is now “inviting pro-life Democrats who are no longer welcome in their party to cross the aisle,” noting that a recent Pew Research Center poll found that 28 percent of Democrats say they would like to see abortion illegal in all or most cases.
“Perez and all Democratic public officials who support childkilling are hypocrites on many levels, because they are unwilling to describe the very procedure they support. I want to hear Mr. Perez quote the medical textbooks on abortion as they describe the tearing off of the arms and legs of a baby and the crushing of her head. Then the debate can begin,” Father Pavone advises.
“Meanwhile, what are those pro-life Democrats to do, trapped in a party that clearly doesn’t want them? Some work to change the party. But if the party doesn’t listen, switch parties,” the priest adds.
