Sounds like a worthwhile project to me.
Honestly, it’s not as farfetched as some might think. If you stretch the meaning of pro-life to mean more than pro-birth (as it should be) then the Democratic Party is by far the more pro-life party. Democrats consistently support causes that seek to sustain and protect life through anti-violence and anti-poverty efforts, whereas our Republican counterparts are “pro-life” until the point of birth. They seek only to pass measures to restrict access to abortion, and then expect everyone to fall in line with their particular moral ideology rather than seeking to sever the root causes of abortion–issues such as economic desperation and a lack of access to healthcare.
Pro-life Democrats are virtually impervious to any Republican talking point. By openly advocating an anti-abortion stance, they sweep the rug right out from under the GOP coup-de-grâce, and thus open the door to real dialogue with the voters.
