Abortion is not negotiable: Democratic Party Draws A Line In The Sand On Abortion Rights

The DNC future: Agree with us or go

A personal/religious belief shall not go against the collective thinking of the demorat platform.

Tom Perez is the best thing to happen to the RNC (and yes, I mean RNC)!

From HuffPo: Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez became the first head of the party to demand ideological purity on abortion rights, promising Friday to support only Democratic candidates who back a woman’s right to choose.

“Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” Perez said in a statement. “That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.”

“At a time when women’s rights are under assault from the White House, the Republican Congress, and in states across the country,” he added, “we must speak up for this principle as loudly as ever and with one voice.” 

Perez’s statement follows the DNC’s controversial embrace of Heath Mello, a Democratic mayoral candidate in Omaha, Nebraska, whose years-long history of voting against abortion rights in the state Legislature drew fire from progressives this week. Daily Kos, a liberal website that raises money for lesser-known Democratic candidates, pulled its endorsement of Mello this week after discovering his history on the issue, and NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue slammed the DNC for adding him to its cross-country unity tour.

“The actions today by the DNC to embrace and support a candidate for office who will strip women — one of the most critical constituencies for the party — of our basic rights and freedom is not only disappointing, it is politically stupid,” Hogue said in a statement.

Perez initially defended the DNC’s acceptance of an anti-abortion Democrat. “Our job at the DNC is to help Democrats who have garnered support from voters in their community cross the finish line and win ― from school board to Senate,” Perez said. “The biggest threat to women’s reproductive rights is the relentless Republican attacks on women’s health care, including legal, accessible abortion services. And I won’t let anyone get in the way of our fight to protect a woman’s right to choose.”

But Perez changed course Friday and delivered a big victory to the reproductive rights movement, saying that he “fundamentally disagree[s] with Heath Mello’s personal beliefs about women’s reproductive health” and that “every candidate who runs as a Democrat should do the same, because every woman should be able to make her own health choices. Period.” 

Perez’s statement will likely alienate some high-profile anti-abortion Democrats in the party, including Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and Sens. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Edwards said at the Democratic National Convention in 2016 that the party might be more successful in the Deep South if it allowed more anti-abortion candidates to rise in the ranks. 

“It’s hard to remain a big-tent party if you have a very small platform,” he said. “We have to make our voices heard.”

Reproductive rights advocates agree with Perez that the party must stand firm on the issue. Hogue celebrated the victory for the movement on Friday.  “Kudos to Chair Tom Perez and the DNC for recognizing that we are a stronger party when we stand for our core values,” she said in a statement to The Huffington Post. “Women across the country who are, and have always been, the heart and soul of the Party, are breathing a sigh of relief to know that the DNC has our backs, and we look forward to a day when we don’t have to fight this fight again.”

  2. Women’s ‘health’ is not an issue in the overwhelming majority of abortions. The fetus’ LIFE is the issue in every single abortion.
    I’ve never heard where anyone has said the woman must die rather than have an abortion.
    But you often hear of women expiring during childbirth. One of my daughter’s almost did at the hands of a midwife. But she and the baby survived.
    In 30 states, the fetus is considered a human being from the moment of conception.
    Really, there is no compromise on the subject of abortion.
    Can abortion be outlawed? I doubt it, but don’t disguise the truth by labeling it a woman’s health issue.
    Screw Perez, he’s a nut.

    • Thanks MethePeople! This has been my position from the beginning of “the right to choose.” Ending the life of a child or child fetus can NEVER EVER be called “health care.” If a certain faction of citizens want to support this practice, then, I want them to call it what is really IS….terminating a life. Furthermore…I don’t want my tax dollars going to an organization that calls it’s services “woman’s health care,” where 90% of their “health care” or more…is abortion traffic. Abortion was NOT really a “choice” given by God or even MOTHER NATURE….not even a pagan god or goddess or even a “wicken.” it was invented by man to terminate a growing baby before the child can take an inconvenient breath and then…be classified by our laws as a murder victim (though, I believe personally that it is anyway—a premeditated, purposeful murder of a human being.) I agree…abortion will never be outlawed…that “horse has been out of the barn” for decades…we’ll never put it back. But this does NOT mean that we have to “give up” on keeping people informed about scientific advances in REAL health care that have allowed us to see inside the womb in ways we were NOT able to do when abortion “rights” were passed decades ago. Law has NOT caught up with science even YET (otherwise—how could “parital birth abortion” be legal ANYWHERE??), even with all the social media and modern day 24/7 information out there…… Unfortunately—we are caught in the triadic crosshairs of science, law, and politics on this issue….and there are no real “winners” within the triad…but there are millions of “losers” in the human beings cruelly ripped out of wombs every year—-but they do not even have a voice —or else the triad would rightly become a quartet.

  7. A health issue is cervical cancer , breast cancer …….Getting impregnated is a CHOICE , bad choices lead to bad concequences ….If the female decides to spread ’em , she better be prepared to deal with the net result if she wants the man riding her bareback .

    Can’t have it both ways . They want the taxpayer to pay for the contraception , but if she decides not to use , and then stick the taxpayer for paying for a medical procedure which she allowed to happen , don’t think so!

    Oh , how about this one ? What would the a-holes in the media say if the Repukelicans would draw a line in the sand on the 2nd. amendment , demand the same ideological purity from their side ( I doubt that would ever happen ) …………… The reaction would be priceless .

  8. Let the punishment fit the crime: Bathe Perez in a saline solution so strong it burns his skin, then pluck his limbs from him using forceps, before crushing his skull with them.

    Disclaimer: this is all allegory for rhetorical purposes.

    But you’re welcome to relieve some stress by envisioning it.

  9. As cruel as it is, it’s also actually insulting especially to people who have genuine health issues. Most liberals/Democrats (and some so-called Republicans) act like getting pregnant is about the same as getting the flu or some other ailment. Unless it was rape, the woman already had a choice.
    They should remember if a man doesn’t want a child, or even if he does, he’s usually required to pay at least 18 years. Or risk going to jail. Of course he made a choice too- but w/ liberal logic they’re only outraged about a man while embracing if a woman backs out of responsibility.

  11. This Democrat apparatchik’s icy looks remind me of the cold-blooded killer Yakov Sverdlov’s from a different era, and I’d guess Perez probably shares Sverdlov’s instinct to convert former rights into anti-Christian diktat’s annihilating every obstacle in the path of moral pathocracy. I’d also guess the real Perez no more cares about Middle America’s women’s real health issues than he does about unborn babies.

  13. Yeah… I’ve noticed the only ones fighting for abortion are those who weren’t subjected to it themselves… Use the aspirin, placed tightly between the knees, prevent conception in the first place. There’s a similarly-simple way to avoid getting AIDS for the most part, but I won’t go into it here.
    I was surprised Savannah Guthrie (a new mom herself) and others on Meat the Press Sunday kinda face-palmed on this gaff by Perez. I was impressed that not all Democrats and leftists are nut-jobs, even if only because they realize that such “policy” (statements uttered by the party chair) only divide and separate, decreasing chances for the party ever coming back.
    And here’s the kicker: Perez was supposedly the more moderate of the candidates running to become DNC Chair earlier this year! I wonder what his Muslim opponent would have to say on this issue?

  14. These are the same people that are quick to prosecute anyone killing a pregnant woman and calling it two deaths. Up til that moment, they never mention the baby’s rights.
    And why do these same people think it is that taxpayer’s responsibility for their sexual behavior? If they are old enough to have sex, they are old enough to prevent pregnancy and take responsibility.

  15. So this Dumbocrat thinks if your a Democrat you MUST thin just like him or get out of the party. That means if your a Dumbocrat you do NOT have the right of freedom of thinking, opinion or speech. That amounts to Communism another name for Progressiveness !!!

He is one and the same who blocked the release of infamous Planned Parenthood videos in 2015. Today, he blocked POTUS’ attempt at defunding Sanctuary Cities, thus allowing more illegals, some of whom are proven rapists, to continue being shielded by sanctuaries for criminals.

  18. Continual abuse of the English Language is not working, i.e. equating unspeakable destruction of living humans to “women’s health” and “planned parenthood” is an insult to intelligence. Spare us your audacious demoncrat blathering.
