    I get a e newsletter from DFLA ( Democrats For Life of America). Seems like a reputable group seeking to reclaim the Democratic Party.

    They sound good from first glance. Too bad they are not in charge of their party.

    This is a good site and you will hear more
    in the future...Christians deserve the credit
    here in causing repentance ..and I believe
    the Democratic party will not use this issue
    to string Christians out...they will actually
    reduce abortions by half. So Christians should
    now push back at the Republicans and say "look
    what they Democrats plan to do and they are
    not going to string us out..election after election". now that is politics.

    Good for the Democrats!

    Only one problem. They are not in charge of the party and are a small minority from what I saw from their list. The crazy Deaniacs are in charge of the party, and they want abortion. If this segment of the Democrats really represented the majority of democrats, they would win elections. That is not going to happen though.

    You think Democratic leadership is going to spill
    their hand about upcoming strategy but what is
    happening with the 95-10 proposal is gaining
    strength...you will hear more and it is reaching
    out to Christians who have played by the rules
    and have made their concerns known and they want
    results and not strung out that is the salient
    point for Christians is not to be continuously
    used for election fodder but to actually get results that in fact should be bipartisan...

    People want big number results they want drastic
    results and not get strung out over and over and
    over actually voting against their interest because of an issue that is deeply important to
    them.

    This is good competition for the Republicans
    they should offer up a plan as well instead
    of demagoguing the issue.

    This is a smart move and I have not heard Howard
    Dean denounce it or call it bunk because in his
    heart he wants to reduce the number also.

    So, it is just a political strategy to reach out to Jesusland? Please explain. I thought they were being sincere in their motives. If they were so sincere with it, why not try and get bi-partisan support. I am quite sure it wouldn't be that hard.

    So it is bi-partisan? Why hide it then. Do they not think America wants their idea? :confused:

    I believe the plan is to appoint a conservative to the SC who is pro-life. Will the DEMS for life be joining them in this plan, or is that too extreme for them? Tell me: Is this a competition, or is this about saving the unborn?

    My guess is that Dean says nothing about it because it is such a small minority of the party that it isn't really even much of an issue. We shall wait and see what happens though when they start taking action to save the unborn. If they are able to get something done to stop abortion, then kudos to them. I don't care which party does it, as long as it gets done. I will tell you, however, that I am skeptical that the looney left who control the party really have any intention of allowing this. I will keep an open mind though.

    I think you know Joe ..it is politics ..the
    Republicans have sent conservatives to the supreme
    court and look what has happened.

    Republicans are thinking about withdrawal in Iraq
    but do you think they are going to telegraph
    that to the Democrats?? They also think politically about the 2006 race.

    Nothing wrong at all for Christians within
    the democratic party and outside it to come
    together to drastically reduce abortions..they
    actually want to drastically do it and not play
    the Republican game of demagoguing the issue
    every election cycle which causes sincere people
    to vote on one issue and sometimes not their
    best interests. We are a country in deep ..deep
    debt and trade imbalance..we are a country that
    outsources its jobs.

    Under a sovereign Gods eye this is politics that
    may be answered prayer and the halving of abortions in the near future.


    I think

    http://www.democratsforlife.org/Press/95-10%20release.html

    is a great and will be embraced by more and
    more democrats who respect what they want and
    Christians want actual drastic reduction in
    abortion.

    A Supreme court nominee is no guarantee that
    anything will happen...instead let good honest
    government and churches unite to actually do
    something..instead of pinning hopes on a not
    so clear supreme court nominee..that looks more
    and more that it will be a Latino lady with
    influence from Laura Bush.

    Does that mean that DFL's will not support a pro-life nominee? Is that too extreme and demagogued for them?

    The democrats will show decorum just as Orin
    Hatch helped Bill Clinton.

    My salient point is what keeps us from halving
    abortion now! instead of pinning our hopes
    on a Suprem Court Nominee that could go in
    with a bent to consider voting down Roe and then
    he or she changes her mind.

    Why don't we actually circumvent the Supreme
    Court and reduce abortion drastically now with
    good laws and legislation with great consideration
    given to the Christian pulse on the matter ..in
    fact they shold be given high advisory status.
    imho

    The tactic should be familiar Joseph. It's a Republican one. [​IMG]

    Democrats have let their intolerance of pro-lifers show for years now, starting with the black-balling of Former Michigan Rep. Bonior, deceased Pennsylvania Gov. Casey, and Sen Zell Miller.
