Pro-Life Democrats Will Rally Against Abortion at Democratic Convention

43% of Democrats identify themselves as pro-life...

From Pro-Life Democrats Will Rally Against Abortion at Democratic Convention:

"Though they constitute a sizable minority, pro-life Democrats are often the forgotten element of a Democratic Party increasingly dominated by abortion advocates.

To make their case that the party's extreme pro-abortion stance is alienating voters, members of Democrats for Life of America will conduct a rally at the 2004 Democratic convention in Boston.

'This is a homecoming party for the many pro-life democrats who have left our party,' says DFLA executive director Kristen Day. 'We are dedicated Democrats who are tired of standing outside the big tent.'

Members of the pro-life Democratic group will sport buttons with the phrase '43 percent of Democrats can't be wrong.'

That's a reference to a January 2004 Zogby poll that found 43 percent of respondents who call themselves Democrats take a pro-life position opposing most or all abortions."
