Democratic leaders remain committed to ensure their supposedly tolerant and diverse political party keeps the door shut to pro-lifers.

Democratic Party chairman Tom Perez stated in April that there is no place for pro-lifers in the Democratic Party and that statement sent other party members scrambling to convince pro-lifers they are welcome.

Marilyn Musgrave, a former Republican congresswoman now with the Susan B. Anthony List, tells OneNewsNow it would be helpful if more pro-life Democrats were in Congress.

“We need them to support banning late-term abortion and we need them to oppose taxpayer funding (of abortion),” Musgrave says of pro-life Democrats.

But that is an unlikely scenario, she says, so long as they keep re-electing a pro-abortion House leader such as Nancy Pelosi.

CNS News, the conservative news website, has repeatedly confronted Pelosi about her pro-abortion views at her weekly press conferences.

“Is an unborn baby with a human heart and a human liver a human being?” a reporter asked her in 2015, CNN reported at the time.

“I am a devout, practicing Catholic, a mother of five children. When my baby was born, my fifth child, my oldest child was six years old,” she said. “I think I know more about this subject than you, with all due respect.”

“So it’s not a human being?” the reporter pressed.

“And I do not intend to respond to your questions, which have no basis in what public policies that we do here,” Pelosi said.

During the internal debate over pro-life Democrats, Pelosi stated in April that “of course” when asked if there’s room for them in the party.

Despite claims that pro-lifers are welcome, there is more confusion after billionaire Democratic megadonor Tom Steyer told Politico the party’s candidates must be absolutely committed to abortion.

It’s a “powerful statement” when a top donor declares such a policy, Musgrave observes.

Meanwhile, she adds, Democrats must reconcile that demand with the 30 percent of Democrats who are pro-life and even more who support restrictions on abortion.
