Hold Dems Accountable on Abortion Rights
Democrats Are Paving the Way for Anti-Choice Candidates
A shocking and unacceptable trend of supporting anti-choice candidates is emerging in the Democratic Party.
“There is not a litmus test for Democratic candidates,” declared Rep. Ben Ray Luján when talking about abortion rights this week in an interview with The Hill. Luján is the Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) which fundraises for Democratic candidates for Congress and has made it clear that it is open to anti-choice candidates it sees as “electable” in traditionally red districts. Even House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi recently said that the Democratic Party is not the “rubber stamp” party on abortion.
This reflects an alarming trend: Democrats are on track to reverse a platform commitment to abortion access and comprehensive reproductive healthcare for women. We believe that only candidates who explicitly uphold these fundamental principles to protect abortion access and women’s comprehensive reproductive healthcare should be considered Democrats, because throwing women under the bus is definitely not a winning strategy.
