JOIN THE MOVEMENT TO ENSURE A BIG TENT!
Support Respect and Tolerance within the Democratic Party
Not all Democrats agree that the crime of abortion should be undemocratically forced upon our nation, our families, and our children, yet incredibly the National Democratic Platform and the platforms in many states ignore this glaring reality. Pro-Life Democrats should not be made to suffer bigotry, discrimination and second-class citizen status within a Party whose leaders claim is a “Big Tent”! Our Party’s leaders must practice what they preach, or step aside. It’s as simple as that!
The Florida Democratic League (FDL) fully supports language on this issue that respects and represents all Democrats, not just a few. How can you help? Here are 3 simple ways.
1.) Contact your local Party and tell them you support the respectful, non-discriminatory language listed below.
2.) Ask 10 friends to contact their local Party.
3.) Make a contribution to FDL (see our address below) so we can continue to work towards adoption of respectful, non-discriminatory language.
Proposed Platform Language to Unite Democrats Around Historic Democratic Principles
“We respect the conscience of each American and recognize that members of our Party have deeply held and sometimes differing positions on issues of personal conscience, such as abortion and the death penalty. We recognize the diversity of views as a source of strength, and we welcome into our ranks all Americans who may hold differing positions on these and other issues.
However, we can find common ground. We believe that we can reduce the number of abortions because we are united in our support for policies that assist families who find themselves in crisis or unplanned pregnancies. We believe that women deserve to have a breadth of options available as they face pregnancy including, among others, support and resources needed to handle the challenges of pregnancy, adoption, and parenthood; access to education, healthcare, and childcare; and appropriate child support. We envision a new day without financial or societal barriers to bringing a planned or unplanned pregnancy to term.”
