Are Democrats Embracing Pro-Life Candidates Now?

As the Republican-controlled Congress continues to fail at everything they do, the Democrats are taking the opportunity to present a clear and progressive message about the future of America try not to “alienate” anyone by having things like hard opinions or principles. After releasing a plan that focused largely on economics instead of any social issues, they now say they won’t withhold any financial support for candidates who oppose abortion.
Rep. Ben Ray Luján told the Hill “There is not a litmus test for Democratic candidates. As we look at candidates across the country, you need to make sure you have candidates that fit the district, that can win in these districts across America.” He said Democrats need a “broad coalition” in order to pick up more seats. Which sounds like code for “we don’t want to piss anyone off by fighting for abortion rights.”
