Democrats are currently reeling at recent comments made by the chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

But his comments are not what are sparking controversy; it is the fact the issue in question has never been supported by the Democratic Party.

For a long time, conservatives have made their stance on the issue known, and it is not surprising the Democratic Party felt they needed to clarify their position on one of the most controversial political issues.

DNC Chairman Tom Perez clarified in an interview that the Democratic Party does not support pro-lifers.

While some in the political world were taken aback by that statement, it seems the lack of respect for human life has always been blatantly obvious within the Democratic Party.

Breitbart News reported:

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez’s announcement that pro-lifers are not welcome in his party has planted the seeds of rebellion among some Democrats and sharpened the view that the party is now primarily defined by its embrace of abortion on demand.

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

Perez’s comments came after the DNC decided to support Heath Mello in the Omaha, Nebraska, mayoral race. Mello, it was discovered, had previously voted in the state legislature consistent with his personal pro-life views:

The sheer lack of consideration given by Hillary Clinton, Planned Parenthood’s supposed “Champion of the Century”, in the election and months following are proof enough of the Democratic Party’s position on the matter.

Furthermore, the constant battle to maintain public funding for abortifacient clinics and practices has always been at the forefront of any Democratic platform.

The controversial statements given by Perez came to light after the Democratic Party openly endorsed someone who had previously voted for pro-life policies.

Shortly after, the political left took aim at Perez, who found himself contradicting his previous statements.

Breitbart News reported:

Abortion lobbying group NARAL Pro-Choice America immediately slammed the DNC for its embrace of Mello.

“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,” fumed NARAL president, Ilyse Hogue.

Perez responded to the scathing bashing with the compliant statement that he “fundamentally disagrees] with Heath Mello’s personal beliefs about women’s reproductive health,” adding that “every candidate who runs as a Democrat should do the same.”

And now, the Democratic Party is supposedly in a whirlwind debate over whether the exclusion of pro-lifers should be allowed.

Breitbart News reported:

Democrats’ decision to dig their hole even deeper regarding commitment to abortion on demand has many wondering how the party will survive since suffering significant unexpected losses in the 2016 elections.

According to The Atlantic, Democrats are now “newly divided … as they attempt to decide who they will welcome, and who they will exclude, amid soul searching over how the party should rebuild after its 2016 loss.”

The party has attempted to portray itself as built upon morally upright virtues – such as diversity and inclusiveness – yet Perez’s statement clearly demands the opposite.

“Diversity is what makes our party great,” Texas Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar told CNSNews.com, in response to Perez’s statement that support of abortion is “not negotiable.”

Overall, the controversy seems to be a mixture of leftist media reporting fake news and the Democratic Party not wanting to seem like the hypocritical murderers of unborn children that they are.

Do you think the Democratic Party ever stood for pro-life issues?
