In what might be a sign that the Democrats are running as hard as they can to the left, DNC chairman Tom Perez is swearing – literally – to keep pro-lifers out of the party.
Perez effectively set up a litmus test for any Democratic candidate – they must be pro-abortion, he told The Huffington Post: "Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman's right to make her own choices about her body and her health. That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state."
Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats for Life of America, found that quite an alarming statement from the head of the Democratic National Committee.
"One day he's saying that we're the big-tent party," she notes, "and then [to] turn around the next day and institute an abortion litmus test and commit to going around the country and twisting people's arms to make them not pro-life anymore, [that] was just poor leadership."link
