It’s not necessarily party vs. party in the abortion rights debate: Democrats have been infighting about the issue since the election. With the party in existential crisis, many wonder if the platform should be more welcoming to those with an anti-abortion stance.
This week, we decided to take a look at the self-proclaimed ‘Pro-Life Democrats’ in Congress. Samantha Cooney gathered names and voting records, with help from Democrats for Life, and one thing was immediately clear: the legislators who take an anti-abortion stance are all men. The 78 female Senators and Representatives are all pro-abortion rights.
Some of the men against abortion rights do side on the pro-rights side occasionally, such as PA Senator Bob Casey, who has voted against the Mexico City rule (Trump blocked funding to family-planning organizations that include abortion education).
What do you think about this? About the debate at large? We’d love to hear from you.
