I’ll admit it. I’d given up all belief in pro-life Democrats. Ok, they weren’t like magical fairy land creatures. They were more like dinosaurs who once roamed the earth but changing circumstances made them extinct. And by changing circumstances I mean if Democrats wanted access to power and money they better worship at the altar of “choice” or find themselves among the riff-raff.
But like a Bigfoot sighting, there are reports of a pro-life Democrat being spotted in Illinois.
The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) said they spotted a creature called a Lipinski which is a genus of a pro-life Democrat. They say they are now doing everything they can to help the poor creature survive in the wild of a Democrat primary, which is often brutal and unforgiving.
SBA List reached more than 23,000 voters ahead of Election Day in support of Rep. Dan Lipinski in Illinois 3rd Congressional District. The group’s team of 70 canvassers, including SBA List staff and students from nearby universities, visited 17,000 pro-life Democrat households in the district in the final days of the race as part of a campaign that also included digital ads and voter contact mail.
“Dan Lipinski is one of the few remaining pro-life Democrats in Congress, and he has shown extraordinary courage,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “He stood firm against Obamacare’s expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion under intense pressure from party leaders to give in.”
And it now appears they’ve gained a victory. The Associated Press is reporting today that Lipinski narrowly won a primary Tuesday over pro-choice progressive Marie Newman, who had the backing of Bernie Sanders.
The GOP nominee is Arthur Jones, a self-proclaimed Nazi and Holocaust denier who was the only Republican to file for the office so we should all be pretty grateful that Lipinski won. Note: I love how the AP has to make clear he’s a “self proclaimed Nazi” and not the typical alleged Nazi that all other Republicans are, according to the left.
But regardless, we should all be glad Lipinski won. So, thanks to the SBA List for continuing to believe in pro-life Democrats when many of us gave up hope. Makes me think I shouldn’t have written off Nessie and Bigfoot so easily.
