The Democrats running for president disagree on quite a few things but all of them support Roe v. Wade and most seem to have little regard for pro-life members of their party.
Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg have all indicated they are not interested in finding common ground with a group that makes up about 30 percent of the Democratic Party according to a recent Gallup survey. Amy Klobuchar says she welcomes them in the party but has not said where she would be willing to compromise.
Democrats for Life Executive Director Kristen Day says the party has lurched left on abortion over the past 20-30 years, shifting from wanting abortion to be safe, legal, and rare to advocating for abortions at any stage of pregnancy for any reason and wanting taxpayers to cover the bill.
Ms. Day gained notoriety for asking Buttigieg whether pro-life Democrats belonged in the party at an Iowa town hall earlier in the campaign season.
In this conversation with Greg Corombos, Day explains how she hopes to change hearts and minds among Democrats on abortion, what she thinks of Senate Democrats rejecting measures to ban most late term abortions or require care for babies who are born following an attempted abortion, and how she is approaching her vote in next week’s Virginia primary.
