Dear Fellow Pro-Life Democrat,
 
The Perez-Mello controversy has brought forward the plight of pro-life Democrats and focused attention on the need for our party to Open The Big Tent—OTBT.
 
Pro-life liberals and progressives across the country have been penning op-eds and writing letters in support of our cause:
 
 
Democrats Employ A Strange Strategy of Reductionism - Matthew Wittenbrook, The Buffalo News
 
 
We are in talks with the Democratic National Committee to open the big tent. We will keep you informed of our progress, but the most effective way is for you to donate your time, talent or treasure to help to get the word out about the importance of Democrats supporting ALL human rights.
 
Can you write a letter to your editor or repost these articles on your Facebook page?
 
Can you donate funds to support our work?
 
Can you help support Democratic candidates for elected office who are pro-life?
 
 
And don't forget to join your local state chapter!  
 
The stakes have never been higher.  Republicans are aiming to destroy the healthcare benefit—in the name of cutting taxes for the wealthiest.
 
Democrats are needed on all these issues—but we need to keep the party from catering to people with the most extreme position on abortion just because they donate money. 
 
Sincerely, 
Kristen Day, Executive Director

STATEMENT FROM KRISTEN DAY ON HEATH MELLO AND OMAHA MAYOR'S RACE.
 
Heath Mello has lost the Omaha mayoral race. This loss, like the other recent Democratic losses, is not surprising considering the pressure applied by Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Rights Action League.
 
These losses reveal the motives of the "choice" movement and the priority pro-“choicers” place on their single issue over the good of the Democratic Party. 
 
Abortion-rights leaders got involved in the race and pressured a pro-life Democrat to make a confusing statement about being personally pro-life but vowing not to vote that way. That position turns away pro-life voters, who rightly question the integrity and authenticity of the candidate.
 
You wouldn't say, "I believe that climate change is real, but I am not going to vote that way," or "I believe that there are too many deaths from guns, but I am not going to vote to reduce gun violence."
 
It was a close election, and when every vote mattered, our party could not afford to make the election about abortion and alienate the Independents and Democrats who believe in the sanctity of life. 
 
The abortion-rights movement shouldn't have been involved in that race at all if they cared at all about the Democratic Party. 
 
Instead, the abortion-rights activists are successfully keeping their single issue first and the good of the Democratic Party second—and delivering Middle America into Republican hands.
