URGENT: DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT: DONATIONS MATCHED UP TO $3000.
 
 
We've been working hard in the first weeks of 2017 to promote our pro-life values. Even with a pro-life majority, we fear that we may not have a whole life majority. Protecting life includes access to affordable health care. We face a tremendous challenge with calls to repeal health care for all Americans, but we intend on fighting to preserve the critical parts of the law, including:
  • Coverage for people with pre-existing conditions
  • No lifetime limits
  • Allowing children to stay on their parents' plans until age 26
  • NO abortion funding
  • Prenatal and postnatal coverage 
  • Extension of the Pregnant Women Support Act (Pregnancy Assistance Fund)
We do need your financial support to ensure that these important provisions stay in place. Please consider participating in our current fundraising drive. We're trying to raise $3,000 by January 31st in order to advance our movement and prepare for this impending battle to protect access to and affordability of lifesaving care. Thanks to a generous donor, all donations up to $3,000 WILL BE MATCHED, which means any donation you make to Democrats For Life of America today will be DOUBLED! Will you chip in today? Even $35 dollars can go a long way. Please Click Here to support our effort to preserve and protect health care for all.Thanks for everything you do!Kristen Day

Which Party is in Disarray?

Posted in News

Hillary Clinton has the opportunity to unite the Democratic Party and secure a more just future. Will she seize this moment, or continue to ignore the millions of Pro-Life Democrats who are ready to fight for the human rights principles of the Democratic Party?

“Her theme the last few days has been to make sure everyone is treated with respect, and no one is dismissed,” said Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats For Life of America. “How about the preborn and those in the Democratic Party who support life from womb to tomb?”

With Clinton securing the Presidential nomination last week, she now must unite the party not only to win the presidency, but also to secure a future for Democrats. There are 21 million Pro-Life Democrats who are not being respected, or included, in the party. Some of those voters might leave the party, leading to a disastrous Trump presidency.

“To truly unite a fractured party, she needs to change the party platform to represent the values of a majority of Americans who do not support public funding of abortion. Instead, Clinton’s first event after securing the nomination was to visit Planned Parenthood. This shows the power of narrow well-funded special interests in politics.” Day said.

Pundits consistently talk about the dissary of the Republican Party.  However, as the Democratic Party has calcified its position in support of abortion, the party continues to lose races. Democrats have lost 69 house seats, 13 senate seats, 910 state legislative seats, 30 state legislative chambers, and 11 governorships. Republicans control a majority of Governorships, state legislative chambers and the U.S. House and U.S. Senate.

Clinton can stop this decline and rebuild the whole party. She can do that by reaching out to Pro-Life voters who want to come back into the Democratic Party. Or, she can go for another hollow victory that will see party strength further erode.
