Women Made The DNC & Bernie Sanders Realize Reproductive Rights Are Non-Negotiable

"Kudos to Chair Tom Perez and the DNC for recognizing that we are a stronger party when we stand for our core values", she said.

"Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman's right to make her own choices about her body and her health", Perez said in a statement.

"They want to change the 25th Amendment which says that a person can be removed from the presidential post if he or she can't rule the state due to physical health". Will it be able to attract and successfully organize a diverse coalition of persons and organizations IN OMAHA sufficient to assure the election of Heath Mello, 37, the Democratic candidate?

It reinforces, though, the question at the heart of Perez's tenure: What should the Democratic Party be? "I am in the fight on economics because I think this is the heart of where we are as a party". Co-sponsoring a 2009 bill requiring women be informed they have the medical right to view an ultrasound prior to getting an abortion. A debate broke out in your party this week when Bernie Sanders endorsed a candidate with a pro-life voting record for mayor of Omaha, Nebraska.

DURBIN: Listen, I am committed to women's rights under the law, reproductive rights certainly, and our party is.

Mello quickly backtracked on his pro-life position.

Last week, Perez and Sanders kicked off a unity tour for the Democratic Party.

Sanders said Stothert's positions were much further to the right than Mello's and mentioned that she would soon have a rally with a nationally known conservative, Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

"Well, I think what is clear to anyone who looks at where the Democratic Party today is that the model of the Democratic Party is failing", Sanders said Sunday on CBS News' "Face the Nation". Both Sanders and Pelosi strongly support the party's pro-abortion position, but they also told news outlets this week that Democrats can be pro-life.

Meanwhile, Illinois U.S. Sen.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., claimed the Democrats had room for pro-life lawmakers.

Sanders, an independent senator, shared the stage Saturday at the Cox Pavilion with Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, addressing a crowd of what organizers numbered at more than 1,200. Perez went on to defend the idea of "candidate diversity" - the notion that Democratic candidates don't need to endorse every position officially supported by their party - and mentioned reproductive rights as one of the issues candidates wouldn't all be expected to support. Democrats for Life has been urging the party to "open the big tent" to pro-life Democrats. Although the political shorthand on issues of choice tends to be that Democrats support the right to legal abortion and Republicans don't, there's broad variance within the parties on the issue of abortion itself and on the scope of what might justify the procedure.

Dannenfelser, head of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, pointed out, "According to Pew Research, 28 percent of Democrats believe abortion should be illegal in all or most cases".

"There are still a significant number of Democratic voters who reject the abortion industry's incessant call for unrestricted abortion on demand, and their party's embrace of that agenda", Tobias added.
