The Whole Life Voice Within The Democratic Party
Dear DFLA Friend,
 
It has been an exciting week for pro-life Democrats, and I am eager to share with you some of the developments.
 
PRO-LIFE DEMOCRAT LIPINSKI WINS in ILLINOIS 3rd 
  • The Illinois 3rd Congressional District re-elected Congressman Dan Lipinski, a pro-life Democrat, despite millions of dollars spent by the abortion lobby to discredit him. NARAL (the National Abortion Rights Action League) and Emily’s List together spent more than 1 million dollars directly for his opponent’s campaign. In the end, this solid Democratic district rejected a female candidate who proudly advertised, “I am 100% pro-choice.”This race should send a strong signal to the Democratic Party that when Democrats have a choice, many prefer a pro-life Democrat. We continue to reach out to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to encourage "BIG TENT" Democratic Party candidates. 
DFLA TO SPEAK UP IN NEW YORK
  • New York members made progress in their effort to stop abortion expansion in New York. Their billboard campaign to raise $5000, featured on our website, gained some momentum when an AP reporter covered the story. We are a little shy of our goal, but the billboard is up and making a strong statement. 
1st ANNUAL STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST LAUNCHED
  • We unveiled our new scholarship fund, and 94% of the prize money is already committed to the fund. Everyone can join in spreading the word about the availability of the scholarship. 
DOORS CONTINUE TO OPEN TO REACH PRO-LIFE MILLENNIALS
  • I spoke to the Harvard Law School students in Cambridge, Massachusetts, about pro-life Democrats and our “pro-life for the whole life” position.
  • I attended the Students For Life event in New York City and met with some fantastic pro-life women leaders.
ANOTHER DFLA CHAPTER – in GEORGIA – ADDS FACEBOOK PAGE
  • Our Georgia Chapter kicked off its FaceBook page. Check it out by clicking here
To keep up these good works and be effective, we appreciate your ability to give of your talent or treasure. We have a fantastic group of volunteers in the Washington, D.C., area and throughout the country who help with everything from editing newsletters, writing press releases, and updating our website to advising candidates and coordinating our volunteers.  But we need more help. We are in desperate need of more administrative staff to support our growing organization!

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR CAMPAIGN TO STOP ABORTION EXPANSION IN NEW YORK

Posted in News

Governor Cuomo is at it again! He is trying to expand abortion in New York.

As you may know, the state of New York has fewer restrictions on abortion than nearly every other state in the nation and almost double the national average of abortions. In fact, 1 in 10 abortions in the United States is performed in New York. But Governor Cuomo wants more.

We need your help to urge Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York Legislature to remove the abortion-expansion language from his budget plan once again.

The abortion-expansion measure will do nothing to help women. Combining unfettered access to abortion with the governor’s support for unlimited public funding of abortion does not help women – particularly those forced or coerced into abortion.

The abortion-expansion language would allow late-term abortions and would allow non-doctors to perform abortions in a state that already has one of the highest abortion rates.  And the governor’s 2018-2019 budget proposed public funding for abortion with no cap on expenditures.

Cuomo is carrying the agenda for a minority group of pro-abortion radicals instead of fighting to advance the fundamental rights of women. If the governor were interested in addressing the real needs of women, his first stop would be New York City, where abortions outnumber live births.  He might then realize that it is not access to abortion that women are lacking; it is support to carry their babies to term that women are lacking.

Please help us:

1.) Contribute to our billboard campaign.

2.) Contact Governor Cuomo.

3.) Contact your state senator (if you live in New York).

We stopped this effort before, and we can do it again with your help.
