FAIRFAX, VA - Democrats For Life Of America today sent a strong message to the Joe Biden campaign and Democratic Party through a full page ad in the New York Times, challenging the party’s extreme drift on abortion. The full page ad includes a letter to the Democratic National Committee signed by more than 100 current and former elected Democrats urging Joe Biden and the Party to moderate its position on abortion.

The elected Democrat letter’s signatories include:

  • Four governors and lieutenant governors , including the current governor of Louisiana, John Bel Edwards
  • Nine current or former Members of Congress, including U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN)
  • 57 state legislators, including Rep. Deborah Fellela, Deputy Majority Leader in Rhode Island; and Katrina Jackson, State Senator in Louisiana
  • 33 local officials
  • Six Democratic nominees

According to the last national Gallup Poll on abortion (2019), nearly 30% of Democratic voters, and 44% of Independent voters identify as pro-life. According to a January Marist Poll, about two-thirds (65%) of all Americans, including 44% of Democrats, say they “are more likely to vote for” candidates who would limit abortion to at most the first three months of pregnancy.
