Resistance to prenatal ultrasounds is “non-negotiable”?

Pro-life Democrats are getting some national attention this week, courtesy of a party leader.

The Washington Post has a commentary by Adam Blake about a declaration this week by the Democratic National Committee chairman, Thomas Perez. The occasion for Mr. Perez’s outburst was concern over a  Democratic candidate in Nebraska.

DNC chairman Tom Perez

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

Abortion on demand, without apology, and at your expense – but wait! There’s more. The occasion for Mr. Perez’s ire, according to the Post, was the fact that the Nebraska candidate “supported a bill requiring doctors to tell women where they can receive ultrasounds before obtaining an abortion.”

Not a bill to mandate ultrasounds, but a bill ensuring that abortion-minded women know where they can get one if they so desire.

Blake notes in his commentary that even Nancy Pelosi was momentarily taken aback when asked about Perez’s remark. Blake also cites polls indicating that a significant percentage of rank-and-file Democrats are not on board with abortion absolutism.

Blake’s commentary is worth reading and sharing. Food for thought, regardless of a reader’s political affiliation.

  1. Although “a significant percentage of rank-and-file Democrats are not on board with abortion absolutism”, almost all of those not on board don’t think it is an important issue. They are not pro-life; they are just agnostic on the issue.
