Hungry Dems Turn to Pro-Life Candidates

Tuesday, 15 March 2005 12:00 AM

In Rhode Island, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has recruited pro-life Rep. Jim Langevin to run against pro-abortion Republican Senator Lincoln Chaffee. Early polling indicates that Chaffee is one of the most vulnerable Senators in the nation for 2006.

Hungry for a win, Democratic officials even tried [unsuccessfully] to convince pro-abortion Democrat Matt Brown to exit the race to clear the way for Langevin.

According to Steven Ertelt of Lifenews.com, pro-abortion groups are not amused.

"It is a problem when leading Democrats publicly recruit candidates who do not share the core values of the party," former NARAL president Kate Michelman complained to MSNBC.

So pro-abortion groups are rushing money to Matt Brown in Rhode Island and are hoping that Chris Heinz [son of Teresa Heinz Kerry and the late Senator John Heinz] will challenge Casey for the nomination in Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Schumer, D-NY, told MSNBC: "This is not a positioning on [abortion] one way or the other. It's about winning."

So when the Democrats finally acknowledge that their extreme pro-abortion position has cost them at the polls, Christie Whitman suggests in her book, "It's My Party, Too," that Republicans should take the position that Democrats are reluctantly abandoning.

Expect Christie's next book to be a collection of her favorite recipes.
