Democratic Pro-Life Leader Loses Primary

PNCI extends a heartfelt thank you to Democrat Rep Dan Lipinski for his pro-life service and leadership as a Member of the US Congress and co-chair of the House Pro-Life Caucus. Rep Lipinski lost in the primary for Illinois’ 3rd district last week to a pro-abortion candidate who targeted him for his pro-life stance. Lipinski reflectedon his loss and his dedication to the unborn in the face of a changing Democratic party:
 
“The pressure in the Democratic Party on the life issue has never been as great as it is now. Over the years, I’ve watched many other politicians succumb to pressure and change their position on this issue. I have always said that I would never give up being pro-life and standing up for babies in the womb. Judy [his wife] and I, and tens of millions of Catholics, hold and live this belief. But it is not just based on religious belief. It is based on science, which shows us that life begins at conception. Knowing this, I could never give up protecting the most vulnerable human beings in the world simply to win an election. My faith teaches, and the Democratic Party preaches, that we should serve everyone, especially the most vulnerable. To stand in solidarity with the vulnerable is to become vulnerable. There is no higher calling for anyone.”
