Red State Dems Choose Partisan Loyalty Over Life

WASHINGTON – Red state Democrats reaffirmed their party’s radical stance today, rejecting efforts to restrict abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy.

Despite polling showing 6 in 10 Americans support restricting abortion after five months, red state Democrats joined with liberals like Elizabeth Warren to vote against the commonsense legislation. National Democrats have made abortion a litmus test for the Democratic Party, with DNC Chairman Tom Perez announcing that pro-life candidates are not welcome. With their vote today, red state Democrats made it clear they’d rather stand with their liberal party leaders and donors than the families they are supposed to represent.

“Red state Democrats abandoned the interests of their constituents to placate the extreme views of their liberal donors,” said NRSC Communications Director Katie Martin. “Voters will remember which Senators failed to support this commonsense legislation and protect the lives of the unborn.”
