Pro-life Democrat Admits His Own Party Made a ‘Disastrously Wrong Turn’

Their stance on human life is one of many issues where the party has gone wrong

The former Associate Director of the U.S. Bishops’ Pro-Life Office and a “pro-life Democrat" said he grieves for “for the disastrously wrong turn of my party.”

Richard M. Doerflinger, who spent 36 years working for the Catholic bishops’ conference, said the Democrats’ stance on human life is one of many issues where the party has gone wrong.

“The growing hostility of many Democratic leaders to religious freedom and rights of conscience is equally appalling,” Doerflinger told Crux, an online Catholic news outlet.

The “courageous few who remain active in politics as pro-life Democrats” are “more likely to be found at the state and local than at the national level,” Doerflinger noted.

“But it’s been a long time since I saw a national Democratic ticket I would feel happy to vote for.”

Doerflinger added:

“A landmark moment for the debate whether abortion is protected by the Constitution, a divisive issue in itself, is happening at a time when our politics is more polarized and divisive than I have ever seen."

“If Roe v. Wade is reversed, abortion will not end but become an issue of political debate in every state and locality as well as in Congress,” he noted.

He also noted the pro-abortion movement has become more and more radicalized and has left “its old emphasis on ‘freedom of choice’ and now fixates on maximum ‘access’ to abortion – which means an insistence on public funding, a campaign against conscience rights for health care professionals, and even an attack on clinic regulations trying to protect the life and health of women.

“The movement’s flagship legislation, the ‘Women’s Health Protection Act,’ is promoted as ‘codifying Roe’ but would attack hundreds of modest laws that are valid under Roe,”

“This new extremism may attract public opinion or, as I hope, it may backfire and turn off many Americans, just as the movement’s fervent defense of the grotesque partial-birth abortion procedure did over a decade ago."

"It’s too soon to tell,” he said.

Earlier this year, Nancy Pelosi's archbishop blasted the Democrat House speaker for citing her "devout Catholic" faith while promoting the use of taxpayer money to fund abortions.

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone rebuked Speaker Pelosi's (D-CA) Thursday remarks as the "epitome of hypocrisy."

"The right to life is a fundamental – the most fundamental – human right, and Catholics do not oppose fundamental human rights," he added.

"To use the smokescreen of abortion as an issue of health and fairness to poor women is the epitome of hypocrisy: what about the health of the baby being killed? What about giving poor women real choice, so they are supported in choosing life? This would give them fairness and equality to women of means, who can afford to bring a child into the world."
